......but fast food. No matter what you order, the taste is the same. That's a bit exaggerated but there is truth in it. The place is clean and the service unbeaten. Though staff is paid extremely little they depend on tips! But they deserve it....The prices are high and delivery comes with tons of packaging. I rather eat from other placesMore

CJs is worth going to no matter what time of the day or evening. The meals are generous portions, and staff/managers are willing to go the extra mile to make sure guest receive the best possible service and food options. CJs Covid-19 precautions would rival...most hospitals with staff wearing gloves, masks and face shields; truly the best I have seen in Uganda and most places across the globe. Try and get a window seat where the breeze comes right through, cooling you down, and giving great views to the outside.More

A trip to Entebbe won’t be complete without a visit to Cafe Javas who offer a selection of refreshing juices, smoothies, teas and excellent coffee together with a consistently excellent menu for breakfast or lunch

Have been to Cafe Javas in Victoria Mall Entebbe several times this past week. A very well organised restaurant with efficient and helpful staff. Coffee has been very good and the accompanying cake we had this afternoon was decadently delicious. Good wifi connection too.

I had a stopover for a cup of coffee and this place was truelly relaxed. Before catching your flight, this is a place to be for short coffe break

One of the finest places in Entebbe with consistent good quality food. We eat here at least once a month. The drinks and cakes are fabulous.

We were using the TravelEx nearby and decided to relax and take the weight off our feet for a while.. We stopped in here as it looked inviting and we were not disappointed. Greeting was friendly and warm and we were to a table. We...each chose an Ice Cream dish from the comprehensive menu of drinks and dishes. Hot food was also available for another day. The Mango Madness comes highly recommended. Service was slick without being rushed or pressured. We would call again.More

CJ’s is a must stop into and out of Entebbe. Don’t confuse this with JC’s (Java Cafe), which is also a nice place but not up to CJ’s, trust me. Food quality, selection, staff and management are high points...plus the setting and ambience is very...modern Ugandan. Open and breezy, you’ll sit and see some mild wildlife (storks, occasional cranes) and gorgeous tall trees that may have a monkey monkeying around! It’s at Victoria Mall so it’s a handy spot for last minute items from several local stores or changing currency at a decent rate. This spot is usually filled to 50% or more with foreigners who have found a taste familiar to them. It’s your turn next!More
