I love this place, off the beaten track but easily accessible. The food is delicious and a wide variety of western dishes is available. Portions are sizeable but not too large. Happy to wrap up so you can take away if you can't finish it. Check out the specials board always something nice to try. There is somewhere to sit... More

A cool medieval place with tons of space and it's usually pretty quiet so it's a nice place to chill! Probably wouldn't recommend the taco salad (the shell was pretty gross but the salad was...

I went to The Keep Cafe with friends for dinner. I ordered a donair wrap and it was delicious. However, my friends were not overly impressed with their meals. We all found that the milkshakes were overly sweet. The server was very attentive to our needs. The Keep did not offer the best food that I had in Jinja, but... More

I was here sometime back as I waited for my wife who was on her way from Kampala. Ordered for cappuccino and a banana cake oh my God I will live to remember the friendliness with the staff in that small place and quality of service that was offered to me. I was so taken up to the extent that... More

We were instructed to call several hours ahead and put in an order for pizza for a group of 25 people. This allowed the staff to have our order ready when we arrived. The pizza exceeded everyone's expectations and the staff was very helpful. Would highly recommend this place.
