Tucked in the rear of a modern building in central Gulu O Café has a quiet ambience suited for conversation and quiet work during the week....
On weekends it becomes a popular destination for the modern Gulu set especially on their Open Mic nights twice a month....

The staff are very welcoming and friendly plus good at their work!!

I had heard about O Cafe by accident and I'm sure glad that I did. I hadn't been to Gulu in many years and was looking for a cafe to sit in, enjoy a coffee, and plan the rest of my stay in Gulu. It was perfect for what I needed. I stayed a while and enjoyed some good food, the coffee was great, and the internet was very fast and reliable. I was able to plan what I needed and I ended up coming back more than once throughout my stay in Gulu.

This place is a class apart; from exceptional customer care, ever smiling and joyous attendants offering a budget friendly service. I call this my ideal coffee home while in Gulu.

It is my first time here, however allow say this place won me over.

The food was amazing. Smoothies were incredible. WiFi was there! Even vegetarians like me can find delicious food options (try the vegetable curry). Our waiter, Tommy, was the best waiter I have ever encountered. I've worked as a waiter in the U.S. and dealt with those in the service industry around the world, and I've never seen someone as passionate about making other people happy than Tommy. How good was O Cafe? I created a Trip Advisor account just to tell people about this wonderful restaurant in Uganda, that's how good! We visited O Cafe as many times as we could during our stay in Gulu and can't wait to go back! It's worth every shilling!

Dear Sean,
Thank you very much for taking time to give O Cafe Gulu 5 stars rating. We have informed Tommy of your compliments. His name has been dropped by a lot of customers before and we can assure you that it will contribute to his end year appraisals for a better reward next year.
