The Coffee Pot has a fantastic salad. After weeks of carb-heavy Ugandan food, the veggie curry and salads will beckon to you; heed their call and gobble them up! I'd stay away from the sandwiches, though - the bread is strangely sweet and the "chicken" was more like tiny strips of jerky than actual chicken. The staff here is wonderfully... More

It is a very nice place to relax and have a drink or meal. One time we were there and the entire time there was no electricity, but we still got a good meal. Nice people and little nice shop next to the restaurant.

enjoyed a late"lunch" here...my dining companions loved their food, I only had a coffee and omelette but found it quaint and the staff super friendly. Very generous helpings...a western touch...nice homemade biscuits

Pleasant, welcoming staff, great chips, and a very clean toilet. But if one has "coffee" in the name, it is reasonable to expect decent coffee. Sadly not! This needs addressing. Food average/uninspiring but, in fairness, this is the back-end of nowhere. Just don't expect too much.

The coffee is also nice. When there is no power there's also no 'fancy' machine coffee. But there's always coffee in a coffee pot :-). Good value for mzungu money..

All good, the food is nice, but saw cockroaches on the same table I was using. Staff is friendly. Internet a bit expensive.

We were there with friends, had some coffee, sandwiches & soda. Sandwiches were very nice, the coffee is good as well. The overall impretion invites to stay & to relax. We came on a day were the power was not there. That means also the toilet has no water. It was challenging/impossible to wash the hands after going to toilet.... More

A nice selection of short orders at a location close to Travelers Rest. Expect even hamburgers to take a long time (30+ min.) to prepare.
