“Jinja's quintessential coffee shop”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

The Source Cafe is the quintessential coffee shop smack dab in the middle of main street.

With its warm, welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, and the fastest internet in Jinja, it is easy to spend hours at a time sitting at one of the cafe tables.

The food ranges from local to "mzungu" (tourist) cuisine, with highlights being the handmade chapatti, samosas, peanut butter cookies, and lemon pepper grilled talapia.

But if for no other reason than to meet some of the really awesome people who live in and visit Jinja, stopping by the source cafe is a must!

“Great Location, Great Food, Great Conversations!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

The Source Cafe is a great place to relax, have some great coffee and conversations. My choices for the coffee are the French Pressed and the Cappuccino.My food choices are the Lemon Peppered Grilled Tilapia and anything with a Chapati. The Source Cafe internet allows you to connect with friends back home (for me that was Michigan) while you are having that cup of coffee. The gift shop has very high quality items and we purchased several for friends and family. I happened to be at the Source one day when there was no electrical power, but that was not a problem at the Source because they have a back up generator. So while the rest of Jinja was dark, the Source was serving hot coffee and we could use the internet to connect with friends.
