Such a pity: the place is by far among the nicest coffee place in Kampala but the quality of the food is just sooo poor.

A quick suggestion to the management: please go ASAP to any local craft market and buy new placemats ! Take also the opportunity to change your broken plates. It is indecent to ask for 25k / a salad and serve it in a cracked plate.....More

First visited Prunes shortly after it opened and have been back several times on our annual Uganda visit since. Seems to be doing well and expanding without losing its charm. Good food and atmosphere. Will be back next week.

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.
