“A refreshing and pleasant break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This dellightful cafe is on the main Kampala Road en route to Murchison falls, just past the turn off to the Rhino sanctuary. The buildings are clean and the toilets excellent. Tables have clean cotton table cloths. Service was fast and friendly and the food good. The cafe is set back from the road in well maintained and pretty gardens. This is definitely a change from many african cafes. We had Rolex's (fried egg rolled in a Chapati), egg on toast and freshly brewed coffee for breakfast

“Convenient place for a break Kampala-Gulu Highway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Phew! Clean toilets! I confidently took all the water I needed, knowing I would be able to ease myself after a long drive from Arua. On a previous trip, after our initial stop for lunch at Mijera town center, at a crowded, and not very clean place, we decided we would try out Kabalega Diner on our way back. Approximately 2 hours away from Kampala City Centre, Kabalega Diner is a stand out in the midst of shrub land. More than the food, I noticed and enjoyed the sound and sight of unique bird species. I am born and bred in Uganda, but noticed 2 birds I had never seen in my lifetime. Do not expect a 5 Star kind of menu or atmosphere here, but good enough to ease your fatigue and rejuvenate you on the long trip. The young man who welcomed and served us told us if we needed special dishes, an earlier call would fix it. Just in case you need to, Contact numbers: +256414691910, +256774582296, +772664088

“Perfect palce to stop en way up to Murchisons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We stop here for coffee/breakfast/lunch on way to or from Murchisons and it is always good. Food is reliable and tasty, they do excellent coffee and the service is quick, friendly and accurate. The bathrooms are also clean, and there is ample safe parking.
