Description: Prunes introduces the first concept eatery in Kampala, bringing together taste, experience, freshness and design. It was created to gather the cosmopolitan community of Kampala and invite people to enjoy local, fresh produce. At Prunes, we offer an authentic experience through our healthy menu, as well as friendly atmosphere. We are focused on detail and quality: our house blend coffee is tested and approved by Africa’s barista champion, who has also trained our staff. Ingredients come freshly picked from various farms and the cupcakes are known to be mouthwatering. Our garden provides a break from the busy streets of Kampala and ensures a quiet, relaxed dining experience for our clients. Prunes also offers catering services as well as events and meetings facilities, with free wi-fi. Take aways and deliveries are also available, making us the ideal choice for 'on the go' people. Come check us out on Wampewo Avenue, next to the Kololo Airstrip.

“Best coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

After 4 months in the bush i was craving for a good coffee, but it was not that easy to find. Finally i found this place and could enjoy, not only the coffee but also the cupcakes and salads. Many expats come here for lunch.

“Peace for work or fun with friends”

Enjoyed the large choice of excellent coffees and the quietness to work at peace in the afternoon as well as the perfect atmosphere at night to meet up with friends!
All coming with an irreprochable service - ask for Freddie !!

Went here for afternoon tea. We ended up staying for 2 hours. Wonderful atmosphere and nice service. We only tried the coffee and cake menu which was great! Has decent wifi.

“Good food, but poor service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

I love coming to Prunes for breakfast or a healthy lunch, but I can only do this when I am not in a hurry. When we go with a group of people there is always one person that has to wait a lot longer before the food comes, if it comes. Especially during the weekends it is crazy. My advice is to create more space for people to sit and make sure you have enough staff to give your guests good service.

When I have time to wait for my food and I decide to go to Prunes I always leave with a piece of carrot cake!

“Favourite place in Kampala!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Prunes is a true gem - their coffee is the best in town, their staff are polite and friendly, and their food is delicious! It's a perfect place to do some work or catch up with your friends over a meal and a drink. They have a mix of sweet indulgences (cupcakes, pastries, etc), and healthy food, including salads and fresh juices. They also host a Farmers' Market on Saturdays, which is something I look forward to every week! Definitely a must visit in Kampala.
