Restaurant
“The only restaurant in Kampala that boasts and spots a Tea bar with authentic Ceylon teas all the way from Sri Lanka. They specialize in Thai Food but also do pan Asian foods. Located in Kololo on Lower Kololo Terrace just off Acacia Avenue. Get yourself some dim sum or wok fried crispy pork ribs or hit the seafood street and have some salt and pepper Calamari. Phad Thai and Bamee Phad are also on the menu if that itch for Thai cuisine is really craving some feeding ”

Bakery
“Holy Crêpe is Uganda's first Creperie specializing in a variety of sweet & savoury Crêpes paired with our fresh juice blends. The menu is an absolute dream. All day break fast, what’s not to love? Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day so I can have breakfast things for breakfast, lunch, supper and every meal in between. But on top of being dreamy, their menu is also really detailed. Being several pages long, there’s so much to choose from, regardless of if you’re looking at juices, coffees, milkshakes or crepes. One might even say you’d be spoilt for choice!”
