Met a business acquaintance at Prunes. The location is central, easily accessible and of course has good parking and is relatively an open air restaurant. The coffee and cakes are fresh and tasty. Nice ambiance and quick service.

We met for lunch at Prunes during restaurant week. Three of our party had specials and I ate the burger. All the food was tasty, especially the restaurant week specials. Our server was great and we didn’t wait long for our food.

This place is one of the best coffee shops/ restaurants in Kampla. Food is great, and the dessert is so delicious especially the chocolate cake!! The outdoor area is beautiful and kids friendly. Whenever I visit Uganda, Prunes is the first place i visit.

It has that rustic feel and quiet and refreshing. The juice"the iron man" was great as well as the salad. Have healthy(greens and vegs) options . I surely recommend it for a quiet calm evening.

I loved carrot cakes and breakfast, "eggs with with three". Spinach was too good! Best to go early to secure a table.

Prunes introduces the first concept eatery in Kampala, bringing together taste, experience, freshness and design. It was created to gather the cosmopolitan community of Kampala and invite people to enjoy local, fresh produce. At Prunes, we offer an authentic experience through our healthy menu, as well as friendly atmosphere. We are focused on detail and quality: our house blend coffee is tested and approved by Africa’s barista champion, who has also trained our staff. Ingredients come freshly picked from various farms and the cupcakes are known to be mouthwatering. Our garden provides a break from the busy streets of Kampala and ensures a quiet, relaxed dining experience for our clients. Prunes also offers catering services as well as events and meetings facilities, with free wi-fi. Take aways and deliveries are also available, making us the ideal choice for 'on the go' people. Come check us out on Wampewo Avenue, next to the Kololo Airstrip.
