The decor and wifi are good but the service is still wanting. I visited the restaurant, was served coffee but it took more than 28 minutes to bring me food/bite. Surprisingly, i had finished taking coffee and the experience was not really good.

I have only been to Coffee at Last a couple of times but it was lovely! The food, ambiance and service were all fantastic. Thanks so much for a great lunch.

Been there a hundred times at least - and keep on going: when I want to do some urgent paperwork without being disturbed, or just to chill, relax the brain, have some coffee, some food and go away happy

I've only been once, but wow..... the service was extremely slow! We ordered pizza and garlic bread. The pizza finally came (hour later) and the garlic bread came 30 minutes after the pizza! Pizza was ok, but not nearly as good as Cafe Java!

I have eaten at Coffee at Last many times in the past few months, and it has been consistently very good, particularly the breaded fish. I have tried other things on the menu, only because the fish is so popular they run out some times. I have not been disappointed with the other dishes; chicken and eggs. Everything is prepared...

I had a lunch meeting here. This place is right opposite Makindye Country Club. They have a wide range of coffees and teas to choose from. Sit on the balcony, cool breeze. I had a nice pot of Black tea which was revitalizing. Thank you coffee at last.

A nice little coffee place / restaurant in Makindye. Popular with expats, as literally all the tables were taken by expats. OK, few tables, and probably not many other options around that aren't very local/basic. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king... The first time I visited for for breakfast, which was nice. A bit slow... More
