Restaurant details

I'm a Peace Corps volunteer in a village an hour away from Kasese and I can tell you hands down this is the best place to eat in town. The women who run the cafe are lovely and their food delicious. They have french press coffee which no other place has in town. Their menu includes baked good that are hard to find outside of Kampala including brownies, cookies, cinnamon rolls, foccacia bread and cakes. They also do pizzas on Fridays and Saturdays. Anytime I come to town this is my first stop. A wonderful treat!

Jambo cafe was a great find in Kasese. Great spot to relax with a great local coffee and a book from shelves, meet friends or business contacts. Good central location, friendly and smiling staff offering some good food, both local and western style. Highly recommended.

Spent a couple of weeks working on various projects in and around Kasese. So glad we found this place fairly early on. The ladies who run it a always friendly and welcoming and there is a very nice atmosphere.

Service can be a little slow (they cook almost everything to order) but they have a good variety on the menu from biscuits and cakes (possibly the only place in Kasese where you can get brownies!) to pizza and rolex.

There is usually at least one or two muzungua faces in here most times of day so it's an excellent place to meet and make friends if you're new in town.

Highly recommended.

You'd never expect six quietly spoken Ugandan women to know how to make the best pizzas, chocolate brownies and the sweetest macaroni cheese in town, but the women of the Jambo! co-operative do exactly this. Yes the place gets a bit untidy and slow if there are a lot of orders, but the food is lush like you'd never expect to find in dusty Kasese town. New meals are put on the menu every month and the women can make things exactly as you want them. Jack fruit, pineapple and banana smoothie? Done. Extra strong coffee? Just ask. Fruit platter without guava? Fine! The cheese toasties, home-made ice-creams and sorbets and special Friday/Saturday pizzas are tasty treats too. TRY THE BROWNIES!!! The best in south-west Uganda!
And you can also take advantage of Jambo's bespoke cake-making service and order a cake to your specification, using their catalogue as a starting point to make the most delicious, moist and beautiful-looking cake for someone special.
