Le Gourmet Delicatessen

Le Gourmet Delicatessen

'Le Gourmet' is the latest addition to the Quality Hill boutique mall located along Ggaba Road in Kampala. Replacing the famous 'Quality Cuts' butchery, this new 450m² delicatessen shop was designed to strengthen the industrial aesthetic of the original structure and to offer a coffee roastery, juice and snack bar as well as a grocery store in addition to the deli's meat and cheese sections, all under one roof and feeling like an indoor market.

The new entrance facade also completes the central 'piazza' which was started as part of an earlier phase of the redevelopment which included the remodelling of 'Le Chateau' restaurant, 'La Patisserie' Coffee shop and the addition of the 'Maison' deco shop.

The new delicatessen market accommodates most of the climate sensitive food stuffs and services in the centre and the back of the building. Overlooking the central piazza, however, is a raised portion of the building that houses the eatery and juice bar with its seating area. Customers have views towards the other buildings in the mall, as well as the entry way water feature, as they enjoy the refreshments on offer.
