“Great food, nice garden atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Aside from the constant banging of the construction going up all around the restaurant, the café is very good. I suspect they will get whatever built soon and the noise not be a problem any longer

The menu is a bit more extensive and interesting than the other cafes in Jinja catering to Western foreigners. The prices are about the same and the garden area out back is really lovely.

“Best Coffee & Relaxing place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

I love Space Cafe in Jinja, where I go every time with all my friends and work colleagues.

Their coffee is just the best and most affordable as well as their selection of fresh juices from seasonal fruits and vegetable.

Once I introduce this place to other people, they won't stop going there - just like me.

“OK if you have 2 hours to spend waiting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Food is good, but it takes too long to make. We don't know what, but something is cooking in the kitchen section. If you are several people together, don't expect to get any two plates at once. They will bring them in such a pace, to make sure you eat in turns. Otherwise, the conversation would dry up, and who wants that?

However, it has a beautiful back yard. If you come here to use the internet or read a book, waiting is totally fine!

Space Cafe serves wonderful coffee, a great range of foods in clean and attractive surroundings, and the service is friendly and professional. I think that this place is the best in town for visitors and locals alike.

“beautiful outside seating and great espresso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I’m working with an NGO here in Jinja, and this is by far my favorite café for lounging in a beautiful outside atmosphere. They have free wifi, free movies on a big screen outside on Fridays, and sometimes free cultural activity shows. There are 2 or 3 other cafes in town that are popular for foreigners and local business people to use the wifi and enjoy a cappuccino, but this is by far my favorite. Compared to the others, the price is fare and the outside space is large and comfortable. The staff is also vey nice. Perhaps this location is new, so it is not yet well known on trip advisor.
