I have been there so many times and their service and food are really good. What I like most is how their dishes are prepared by the chef.

Cafe Javas, Kampala Road is an excellent joint. The ambience is excellent, the meals are superb, the staff are so friendly you feels at home. All this 'werved' with a high speed internet and airconditioned environ. When in Kampala this is a place to stop for a meal.

Great place to have breakfast. Especially the skillet breakfast. Great view and outdoor seating. Get your coffee in a "to go" cup if you are sitting outside. It will stay warmer much longer.
