Ever been so freaking proud of a friend? So much that they come up in every entrepreneurial conversation you have? Well, Brian Ndyaguma is one of those friends. His devotion, patience, zeal, hard work and creativity really sets him apart from the rest. And it hasn’t started today, started way back while we were still in Campus.
Kahwa2Go is a lovely coffee themed cafe based at Ntinda Complex which is about 20 minutes from Kampala and easily accessible via matatu (known as taxis in Uganda). Kahwa2Go is run by Brian and his lovely wife, Victoria. This being my second visit, I really wanted to profile Kahwa2Go as one of the restaurants you really should check out when next in Kampala – and not just because my friend Brian owns it, but because it truly deserves the spotlight. And while we are still on entrepreneurs I love aka former Uni-mates vibe, I am so proud of my friend Allan whose love for photography has got his company, Events Guru Ltd listed as one of the top wedding and events photography providers in Uganda.
The Ndyaguma’s have done such an amazing job with the place – from it’s meticulously done rustic decor, calm ambiance, sumptuous meals, well trained staff – everything about Kahwa2Go is simply worth writing about. I had always assumed that they hired an interior designer to design the space but turns out that they actually did it all by themselves. Pretty commendable, right?
The Kahwa2Go Menu is so diverse with great options to choose from ranging from Breakfast, Chapati Rolls, Teas, Coffees, Juices, Smoothies and Milkshakes, Hunger Teasers (I love that title) such Fish Fingers, Wraps and Chicken Nuggets, Salads, Sandwiches and Burgers and a variety of main meals with chicken, beef and fish being the prominent ones.
I wanted a light meal on this particular day, but I ended up so stuffed because my definition of “light” turned into Jollof Rice with Chicken and a Grapefruit Parfait (I know, I know – See my life – Lol). But in all honesty, it was worth it. Their meals have that homey taste to them – so warm and addictive. The Jollof Rice was so sumptuous and the chicken so tender – finally got a taste of the famous Jollof Rice. The Grapefruit Parfait was highly recommended by Victoria and I totally understand why because it got better with every bite and it is such a healthy treat too. Ray, (the dope guy behind the lens) had the Bbq Chicken Wings and Fries as well as the tall glass of awesomeness also known as the Caramel Milkshake (Fell in love with it on my first visit last year – so freaking delicious).
As for the service, pretty amazing just as I remembered it from my last visit.
The pricing is pretty great with cost of menu items ranging from between Ugx. 10,000 (roughly Ksh. 280) for light meals and Ugx. 30,000 (roughly Ksh. 850) for the main meals. And how dare I forget to mention just how generous their serving portions are!
Thanks for passing by :-).
And thank you Brian and Victoria for always being amazing hosts. I am so proud of your entrepreneurial journey and I know Kahwa2Go is destined for greatness.
