I stayed there almost every afternoon after I quitted my job, Steaks are good, so are the drinks and dessert. They do well above in food and drinks. A Kind Tip: Sit out in the balcony, nice view.

Cafe Javas has a great crowd and the food is excellent.The customer service is great too; kids get some drawing paper which is great for keeping them busy! Best place to sit is outside overlooking a park

Cafe Javas is a great place to go for a nice casual meal, there are quite a few and they do take away. I had a warm sandwich with chips and a fresh fruit juice - highly recommend it!

Loved cafe javas. They had iftari specials in ramzan which was fantastic. We however had coffee and the nojitos which were delicious. My friend who accompanied me couldn't stop praising their salad and food. Must try

The food is great and nice to be able to get a more western meal and coffee selection. But there is nothing authentic in terms of African/Ugandan food.

Am a Ugandan living in Pretoria RSA. Am a coffee man, and because of that, am intending to open up a coffee shop once I come back home. Does cafe Java's offer franchising opportunities to people like me?
