Meals & Drinks
Guests who arrive late at night, or who did not order a meal before arriving may choose from the snack menu, usually a bowl of soup or a toasted sandwich.
Guests can choose to have their meals on the dining veranda, in the garden, or by the pool. If it is raining, meals are served indoors.
Allen designs the Pineapple menu, catering for vegetarians, vegans, guests with allergies, gluten or lactose intolerance, and other dietary requirements. If you have special concerns please discuss them with Allen and she will do her best to make sure you have the food you need.
A range of tasty meals is offered using our home-grown produce as much as possible. Our orchard produces mangoes, avocados, lemons, papaw (also known as papaya- a squeeze of lemon or lime helps to bring out the flavour), watermelon, mulberries, cape gooseberries, and the occasional strawberry!
The vegetable garden produces lettuce, tomatoes, courgettes, butternut squash, cabbage, onions, garlic, green pepper, eggplant, and sweet potato while the herb garden outside the kitchen has parsley, thyme, basil, rosemary, and mint. All these appear in season and what we do not have ourselves we usually find in the local markets.
We make our own granola and marmalade and our sourdough bread comes from a company called Brood. Residents may invite guests to join them for drinks or meals and if you have a special occasion, please discuss it with Allen who will be happy to arrange any special touches for you.
Buffet breakfasts offer a choice of fruit juices, tropical fruit, home-made granola, cereals, cheese, salami, yogurt, hard-boiled yellow-yolk eggs, sourdough bread or toast, and a selection of Ugandan honey, jam, peanut butter, and home-made marmalade.
Our cooked breakfast for main house guests is $5 extra per person offering a choice of eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, baked beans, avocado and tomato. This should be ordered the night before by filling in the meal order form. Guests who order a cooked breakfast may also choose from the buffet table breakfast selection.
Lunch is two courses, costs $10 and can be ordered at breakfast time by discussing with Allen and filling in the meal form. Lunch may be a seasonal salad or an egg dish with either a bowl of soup or a pudding. Packed lunch could be sandwiches or a salad, a boiled egg, fresh fruit and a drink.
Dinner is three courses, costs $15, and can be ordered by discussing with Allen and filling in the meal form. The dinner meal of the day, with a vegetarian option is usually served at 7.00pm but please speak to Allen if you prefer a different time.
Our honesty bar is in the corner of the living room with a choice of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks and ice. Wooden serving bowls for roasted groundnuts are available in the bar area. Wine is available from the bar fridge by the bottle or served from the kitchen by the glass (red or dry white) on request. There is a price list and sign-up sheet so that guests can help themselves.
