Directed here by the positive Trip Advisor reviews we were slightly scared looking at the place from the outside... but the inside garden is lovely! The staff is very kind and the food is decent, you can even find good vegetarian options (I had the avocado wrap). And of course, wifi works well, which is an immense plus ^_^

It's not "fast food," but if you want to go out to breakfast, lunch, or dinner and you don't want a fancy restaurant, this is the place for you. Really good food, mid-price range, and fairly quick! Right on Main St. by the Source Cafe.

Good place for cheap eats and free wifi but the menu is limited and the atmosphere is lacking. Other restaurants nearby are better.

We were hunting around Jinja for a decent cup of coffee and were recommended to Space Cafe by a local - and what a recommendation it turned out to be! The coffee was excellent, both the Cafe American and Cappuccino can be whole-heartedly suggested as the coffee was fresh and delightful! Our server couldn't be sure about the origin of... More

Was here a number of times throughout my six weeks in Uganda for the internet and snacks. The food is decent - nothing too special and slightly pricey by Ugandan standards. The wifi works really well, which is why we all kept coming back! The vibe is good, and you can waste away a few hours with some coffee or... More
