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.

This is another nice place to have breakfast in Kampala. The food is first class. Everything they have on the menu is great. Quite pricey though. Serving is enough and staff are very pleasant.

This is the place where you meet expats and let your kids play. I guess that's what Prunes counts on, so they think they don't need to provide good service nor good food. It just got worse, as they revised their menu (throwing out the...More

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.
