Cafe Pap is in a good location in Garden City Mall, convenient for a short break for coffee or lunch when in town doing errands. The location is a complete plus. The menue offers sandwiches, salads, etc. The coffee is decent. The sandwiches are pretty nice - my favorite is the steak and beetroot. The salads I find too small... More

Kampala has a few coffee shops that have come and gone. But Cafe Pap has provided steady service, a serene environment and Jolly has it to such a level it's a pleasure to visit, always! Both the coffee and food are above average and consistently good!

The lunch special was very good, but what made my visit special was the attention to detail. A very friendly hostess and waitress was attentive and helpful. Good service, huge portions, tasty food. The WiFi was fast and free. It's not exactly a date spot, but the ambiance was fine. Note there are three locations, but TripAdvisor only has one.... More

On the basement level of the Garden City shopping mall. Pleasant enough without being anything special. Usual selection of coffees, tea and soft drinks. Meals looked ok but didnt try.

I ordered chicken and chips and a tuna salad sandwich, for the price it's not worth it. I ate at the garden city mall, I'm not sure if the food is different anywhere else. The service was good and quick.
