Best cuisines i have tasted being a vegetarian,the ambiance at Cafe Java's i only compare it to the Maldives or the Zanzibar coastal hotels. The customer care team and the waiters are heavenly from there spoken to there physical services.

I personally think that Javas has gone downhill over the past 5 years. A victim of its own success? Best setting Acacia Avenue; best service Jinja Road; best menu Breakfast. Better options than Javas nowadays

A co-worker and I had dinner here before flying out to Europe. The service was very good and friendly, and the meals had very ample portions. I had the jerk chicken dinner and enjoyed it. My friend had a very large salad. I'll definitely be...back to Cafe Java the next time I'm in Uganda.More

Yes all that food was just me. But in my defence I was on holiday. And I had not had breakfast or lunch & it was 2pm Soooo. Anyways I digress. I had to rate CJs, Grt customer service, consistent and delicious food. I must...say u guys are excelling upwards and onwards. Ambience on point , clean and organised. Am a pastry chef as well as a restaurant owner in the UK so i can appreciate some good food and atmosphere. I have eaten in 3 locations and never disappointed. Every time am in town running errands and miss lunch CJs is my default. Definitely recommendMore

We visited this place twice and both times were satisfied with the food and drinks we got. Especially juices and smoothies were good (they don’t serve alcohol). The place is popular, so there might be a chance that you’ll have to wait for your table....The place is very ‘European’, so it is a safe choice if you are looking for easy and familiar ´Westerner food´. It is in the mall, so you can do your shopping at the same time.More

Anyone who visits or lives in uganda should visit any branch of this cafe javas, it's not only about the food even though it's the most tasty with the uniquest menu in the country it's also about the service experience. Their workers are well trained....Well done cafe javas. I think it's the most well reputable brand in uganda.More

I really don't know what do they do with their food, but some kind of soda is added to the food so you feel full faster... The portions are not that big, I can eat 2 burgers at any other place but Javas adds some...kind of soda so you can't even finish the fries that came with the burger.. It's a trick with all their food.. Taste is okay but this trick is a big off...More

By far my favorite restaurant. Great food, great service and amazing value for money. Whatever you pick from the menu will be delicious and be served with a smile. Would recommend to anyone who's looking to leave a restaurant happy and satiated.
