I spent a few days in Kampala recently and my biggest joy was to discover a great cup of coffee, which has been a treasure hunt of sorts for me every time i go back to the mother country. I found it in a cafe latte served up at the Game branch of the ‘Good African Coffee’ chain of cafes. Even better was that there was a supervisor who kept the staff on their toes because my coffe was late in coming…….and I had not even complained! Good coffee and good service! Something is happening in Kampala.
It kept getting better as I had another delightful cafe latte and a muffin at the Garden city branch of Cafe Pap, all served with a smile. I was in heaven. I have long since forgotten having to walk up to the counter to insist on paying the bill at their town centre branch last year.
And when I got to the airport I found another branch of the Good African Coffee brand and the service was fast, friendly and memorable. I have griped alot about slow and tedious and often ‘I don’t care’ attitudes one can experience when eating out in kampala, but my last visit tells me the culinary scene is on the right track….and its about time.
