You cant talk about Pizza and miss COFFEE AT LAST in your statement. Food quality and consistency is their top priority. Always home away from home. Thank you

Called on Saturday May 15th, 2021. Was trying to order Pizza for delivery. I called at approximately 5:15 and spoke to a man. I asked if I could send a PIN so that he could find the location in Makindye, he advised that with the...current situation in Uganda it may be hard to deliver but he would call me back to confirm. It's two days later and he did NOT bother to call back. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food at Coffee At Last but this time its a FAIL!More

I saw an advert from COFFEE AT LAST  showing free pizza on Friday, I decided to inquire, a staff received my call and ask what choice of free pizza do I prefer I said beef (she never explain in details what the offer is). I...asked if they can deliver the free pizza she told me yes. I made the call at 5:30pm, 20min later I received a called that my pizza will be delivered. From 5:50pm there was no pizza delivery. At 8:00pm I received another call that my pizza is on the way. Finally pizza arrived at 9:00pm. She told me the pizza was 34Ush, I was so disappointed after waiting from 5:30pm. This is the worst customer service, poor way of informing customer on promotional item, Staff are not well trained. The management have to focus more on how their staff operate and communicate to customer.More

When you have a time to kill, or a vacation but want to spend it near Town, coffee At Last is the place. And the pictures shared on @CoffeAtLast Facebook Page and Twitter create the FOMO... I enjoyed the Coffee in the morning since I...slept at Mahai Guest House which is part of Coffee At Last. I spent an hour sitting in the gardens that day, reflecting on my year. At the end of the hour, I remember thinking: “Damn, I had a great year. Of course the ambiance was favourable to meditate! No noise! No nothing!! I want to appreciate the team at CoffeAtLast. My friends still tell me, Damn... We were treated so well. Customer service was on point. There is good coverage of WiFi with both download and upload speeds around the 10 Mbps mark. We enjoyed the food to the maximum, very delicious. My Red velvet birthday cake was a whole mooodd for me. The pitzaaaaa was 🔥🔥🔥we wanted more and more 🔥!! We later enjoyed the scenery for bomb picturessssss... I can’t wait to visit again. Need where to celebrate from?, these guys have spacious places for all your kind. I will come back for Pitza, cake and coffee very soon!More

I visited this coffee shop twice within a period of 4-5 days. On both occasions it was for breakfast. One day was a Saturday and the other was on Tuesday. On both days there were very few clients. This was already not a good sign....The service was given by friendly waitresses, but Oh! So slow! The first day there I ate boiled eggs and drank coffee. These were ok. On the next visit, I went with 3 other people. I had a fruit salad and coffee. Two others ordered katogo, and one other wanted pork sausages which were unavailable so she ordered 2 meat samosas instead. The fruit salad took half an hour to come, but was good. The katogos took almost 45 minutes! They were served with beef meat that tasted so aweful that no one ate it. After waiting 45 minutes, we were told the meat samosas were finished! When they arrived, one was meat and one was vegetable. The meat one was OK, the vegetable one was tasteless. The food was definitely uninspiring. The service was again slow and the sweet waitresses were not supported by the kitchen. Not impressed, not going back.More

I have been a big fan of Coffee At Last for a few years now, but since they moved to their new location, right next door, I have even more wonderful things to say. It reminds me of those ads that tell you of the...'New Packaging' but 'same good taste inside'. Albert the owner has really shown his talents as a designer....the colour schemes, wall coverings, furniture, even a hammock in the garden. The weekend barbeques are a terrific addition to their regular fare, and the additional seating, both inside and outside afford lots of choice for everyone. The best was the Easter weekend when they not only had face painting and balloons for the kids, there was a bouncing castle. The new head chef is constantly coming up with new creations...its just an amazing improvement on an already wonderful restaurant.More

Coffee at Last is my favourite café in Kampala. I've been a regular customer since 2012. I lived in Makindye for three years and would visit Coffee at Last several times a week. I've taken many friends and clients there. Coffee at Last now has...its own building with offstreet parking and a garden (almost next door to the original C@L). It can seat 70 people making it perfect for groups. (There was a surprise birthday party when I was there last week). I have always loved their double cappuccino and have a weakness for the rolex! Yesterday I had one with bacon in it. It was something else. I also like their steaks, burgers (with potato wedges) and chicken dishes. There are all kinds of coffees and juices on sale. You can also buy beers and wine. It's interesting how this business has evolved. Once most popular with expats and tourists, the crowd is now very popular with Ugandans too. I see that as a real sign of success. There are a few local dishes on the menu, including katago (very reasonably priced). Albert the owner is very receptive to everyone's comments and frequently checks on the clients when he's around. I love everything about Coffee at Last. The interiors are artfully designed and there are different types of seating, according to your mood.More
