This is a must visit for anyone in to coffee. A quaint set-up with seating inside or out on the deck. Bags of roasted coffee beans from across the region to buy to take away or grind for a fresh brew. The aroma is amazing....More

About a 15 min walk from Serena Hotel. I’ve been several times in past three years. I always try to go back when I’m in Kampala.

1000 Cups of Coffee has really great coffee - I actually brought some back for friends and family for Christmas. They have all sorts of flavors and different types of drinks. My one wish for 1000 Cups would be for them to get internet.

Remember coming here before and liking the coffee & food. Ambience is still great, laid back backpacker style but coffee super weak, frappucino with no ice, micro salad. Shame!

Developed fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea after I ate here. Would never go here again. Eat here at your own risk.

Hit this place every trip to buy coffee to take home. Love the country coffee and their normal blend. Food menu is basic.

I loved everything about this place - the vibe, the coffee, the fact that they have a coffee tour. But mostly the coffee. My only regret is that I didn’t buy more beans to enjoy at home! It’s nice that they’re are across the street...More

This low key, non-descript shop is still a great stop for a coffee and basic food options. Menu is not fancy but the coffee is very good, with several bean options, and milk based drinks are very good. This place has been here a long...More

1000 Cups of Coffee makes outstanding coffee and is such a nice relief from the Kenyan coffee chain (you know which one). The place is very relaxed and the staff is super friendly. Oh, don't forget to buy some freshly ground coffee in the nice...More
