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.

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.

The food here was delicious! Especially after camping through Africa for a month. We ate here a couple times while in Kisoro and we were not disappointed. Service wasn't amazing but the staff was all friendly enough. Definitely wasn't the worst service I had while in Africa. Recommend it for a tasty lunch in Kisoro.

We had a lunch stop in here on our way to Bwindi. Food was quite good, and price for food and beer was good. Service was good as well. It's in a good location on the way there and the place wasn't too busy.

Lovely little café with a nice atmosphere and friendly staff. I highly recommend their pancakes! However the homemade cake was a bit dry.
