November 4, 2017 Joeann Galban

Kasese is a town north of Lake George in the Western Region of Uganda. It originally grew around the copper mine at Kilembe, while attention later turned to cobalt mining. It is the chief town of Kasese District, and the district headquarters are located there. Kasese is also the largest town in the Rwenzururu region. Charles Mumbere, the Omusinga of Rwenzururu, maintains a palace in the town.

White House

Restaurant inside White House Hotel.

Reviewed By rvisser99 - Leiden, The Netherlands

Although the hotel side of things is fine and you can have a cold drink, the restaurant is really terrible. The tables/chairs are the simple plastic kind normally used outdoors. Service is a word unknown to the staff and the food is really bad. one of the chef's specialties is a hamburger, which is some unidentifiable overcooked meat on stale bread. The chips they serve have mold on them and the fish is fried when it arrives and just heated when a customer requests one. There are not too many dining options in Kasese, but this should be on your avoid list.

Rwenzori International Hotel Restaurant

The best place for dinner in Kasese. Part of the hotel with the same name. See website.

Reviewed By rvisser99 - Leiden, The Netherlands

Here you can get some decent food, but not exceptional. Some of the meals listed could not be made as ingredients were not there. The goat meat is pretty O.K., but not better then you get in scores of other places. The spaghetti is fine as well. The place is nothing special, but considering this is Kasese, it is one of the few dining options out there and this place is worth a visit. You can have dinner indoors, but dinner at the lawn outside is nicer.

Queen's Pavilion Telecentre and Cafe

Reviewed By FootstepTrails - Kampala, Uganda

While at the Pavilion, you will have a beautiful scenery of Queen Elizabeth National Park. After a stop at the equator for a photo shoot, I would recommend one to visit the Pavilion - there is a cafe and one can get to know about the Parks' history here.

Jambo! Cafe

Reviewed By TheRegalWadebridge - Wadebridge, United Kingdom

I read a bit about the Jambo cafe before I visited last week after a trekking trip in The Rwenzori Mountains. I popped over during the evening and Alice and her friend greeted me and I donated a book for their collection. I ordered a mango smoothie with fruit salad and yoghurt and both were delicious. The ladies were very friendly and chatty, please visit and support this co - operative partnership.

Cafe Olimaco & Restaurant

Reviewed By NaturesMoments - Pickering, United Kingdom

Our guide stopped in Kasese for fuel and I did a quick google to find a coffee shop and got out guide to take us there. It was amazing. Great coffee PLUS ice-cream. What more can you want on holiday!
Put it on the list. Tick.
Note: Its not quite where tripadvisor/google thinks it is so look further on the road on the right!
