Food is not the best. I always have the Greek salad since I think it's the tastiest thing in the menu. The wifi is very reliable and if not to many people are on it, it is pretty fast. Coffee is meh. Staff is very friendly and the courtyard are is very pleasant.

I have spent time doing work at Cafe Frikadellen during the day. I really enjoyed their latte, the wifi is very quick, and their service was attentive and speedy. The environment is also very conducive to being able to work and spread out if you need a full table space. I have also attended the Friday evening buffet at Cafe... More

This café was such a wonderful place to visit. The staff in front was welcoming me with a smile and ready to serve and take my order immidiately. The veranda is kept well with good furnitures - clean and with a peaceful atmosphere. I had breakfast tea and the order was served within 10 minutes only. The café has good... More

I've visited Cafe Frikadellen several times this year and have had good experiences. However, yesterday we waited 45 minutes to be presented just with our drinks and in total two and a half hours for a food. Not sure why a vegetarian burger is listed on the menu...it's never there every time I've ordered it.

In Cafe Frikadellen at the moment. We have waited 2 hours and 20 minutes for our order. Our driver is waiting outside. This is not acceptable. We really would not recommend this cafe at all

If ever we are staying in Masaka or just driving through, we always make sure to stop by Frikadellen. Their menu has a wide variety of food so that everyone can find something that they enjoy. I'm particularly partial to their souvlaki. Their Friday night buffets are wonderful - but come hungry! With few places that serve Western food in... More

We found this restaurant after we had lived in Masaka for several years. They cater to a western and European diet. Their Friday night barbecue is the highlight of the week. We just had their pancakes stuffed with many different vegetables and shredded chicken. The contents were a delicious stir fry that was satisfying for two people. Along with a... More

We had dinner here as a group of 26 tourists. The service was good and the food was pretty nice. Serves burgers, pasta, grilled meats etc. Quality was good, quantities were very large. Reasonable pricing too. There is a gift shop there selling African style gifts which are quite tricky to find elsewhere. All round a good choice. Only point... More

Cafe Frikadellen is started by a Danish couple and here we serve Danish and European food such as burgers, steaks, chicken and fries, Italian food, Greek food, etc.

Every Friday we have barbecue buffet from 6 pm. And this event which is often well attended. The cafe has outdoor areas where you can sit in the shade and enjoy your food. Inside we have a small playroom for the kids and some cozy tables where you can sit with your notebook and write home.
