(Updated) Sunday Brunch in Kigali

It isn't a Sunday in Kigali if you aren't having brunch. But which brunch is the best? We asked our Kigali families to vote for their favorite family friendly Sunday Brunch. Here are the winners. 

Bwok Cafe & Bistro

Saturday 10:30am to 3:00pm

RWF 7,800 for salad bar; mains range from 8,000 RWF to 14,000 RWF (includes salad bar access)
KG 383 st. Kwetu Film Institute

Bwok Cafe & Bistro - located in the Vision 2020 Estate - is a popular option for families based in Nyaturama and Kagugu. They offer a delicious breakfast menu on the weekends (and burgers!), which also gets you access to the rotating salad/buffet bar. They also have a small play area in the back for the little ones.

Kigali Marriott Hotel

RWF 32,000 with beer & house wine, or RWF 25,000 soft drinks only.
Kids below the age of 6 dine for free, and those aged 6 - 12 dine half price.

Sunday brunch as the Marriott Hotel is a winner amongst Kigali families. You can enjoy the weekend lunch and live band, whilst your kids enjoy the bouncy castle, football, volleyball and swimming pool.  

Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre 

Sunday 12:30pm - 4:00pm
RWF 30,000 per person
Kids below the age of 5 dine for free, and those aged 5 - 12 dine for RWF 10,000. 
KG 2 Roundabout

Also popular amongst Kigali families, brunch at the Radisson offers a kids corner, chocolate foundation, mini buffet and cotton candy. You can also enjoy free access to the pool. The Radisson recommends you to make a reservation. 

Radisson Blu & Convention Centre is the best and worth the price. You get all the types of good food, including sea food, a glass champagne and free access to the swimming pool.

Hotel des Mille Collines

Sunday 11:00am - 4pm
RWF 18,000 (effective 6th August)

Indulge yourselves next to a glorious pool at the Mille Collines. A popular spot for locals and expats alike, diners can relax in the outdoor restaurant area, next to the pool or by the stylish bar. There is a great selection of food, and a live band playing some great tunes.

Heaven Restaurant 

Saturday & Sunday 10:00am - 2:00pm
KN 6 Ave

During brunch at Heaven restaurant, you can sit back and enjoy the views whilst your kids take part in some of the different kids activities on offer every week. In the past, these have included painting classes, party games and magic shows. 

I recently visited Heaven restaurant in Kigali and tried the brunch buffet. Hands down the best brunch in Kigali, with delicious french toast and maple syrup, fruit salad, breakfast wraps, and countless other selections. The bagels are also the best I’ve had in Kigali (where bagels are very hard to come by.) The service is excellent, the outdoor seating area has a wonderful ambience, and the view of Kigali through the tree-tops is magical. I highly recommend Heaven’s brunch.
