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

Best range of coffee that I've come across in Kampala. Also, the only true barista's in Kampala (so far). Well worth discovering.

I could've easily spent more time here. We got cups of coffee, as well as beans, and shopped in the cute little shop attached. The people are friendly and the coffee delicious! What more could you ask for?

Latte was weak and very watery. Least the outside is somewhat comfortable to sit around and relax for a bit. nothing fantastic about the coffee for a place that specialises in it

We stopped here several times during our recent trip to Uganda. We loved the coffees, tea, mango juice, Hawaiian Grilled sandwich, the gift shop, the atmosphere and service. A great place to visit or do computer work.

This little shop is pretty much smack in the middle of town. I was impressed with the quality of the coffee and the unusual toppings offered (e.g. lemongrass). Stop in and you won't be disappointed.
