1000 Cups of Coffee has really great coffee - I actually brought some back for friends and family for Christmas. They have all sorts of flavors and different types of drinks. My one wish for 1000 Cups would be for them to get internet.

Remember coming here before and liking the coffee & food. Ambience is still great, laid back backpacker style but coffee super weak, frappucino with no ice, micro salad. Shame!

Developed fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea after I ate here. Would never go here again. Eat here at your own risk.

Hit this place every trip to buy coffee to take home. Love the country coffee and their normal blend. Food menu is basic.

Just stepped in one day to see what they have. The ambience has made different with the rusty interior. There are couches as well as high chairs and a couple of tables as well. They have a variety of coffee, including the local ones. I...More

Best range of coffee that I've come across in Kampala. Also, the only true barista's in Kampala (so far). Well worth discovering.

I could've easily spent more time here. We got cups of coffee, as well as beans, and shopped in the cute little shop attached. The people are friendly and the coffee delicious! What more could you ask for?
