Don't normally go out for breakfast but did for once. Good cooked English breakfast plus coffee and a smoothie. Good way to start the day

We stayed in an apartment block close to this and found it to be perfect for the odd afternoon lunch when we were not eating in our room. The food is tasty and fairly cheap for Lagos. The kids loved the burger and also the pancakes. The staff we friendly and very attentive.

Really lovely little cafe. Not too cheap but worth it. Great service. Yummy pancakes and juices. Fortunately it was close to our apartment. Would not have found it otherwise. Shame only discovered on our last day😟. Would recommend.

It takes a little time and effort to reach this Cafe on the hillside. We love it and it's not our first time to visit it. You can find it by going behind the Bus Station and looking up a sloping side-street. You can enjoy the sunshine or shade here. It is very clean and while the menu is limited,... More

Second year in Lagos and yet again not disappointed! This small little cafe underneath our block of apartments has such a wide variety you'd be mad not to give it a go. The pancakes are divine and the wraps are huge and tasty for the price. As a very fussy eater (anything green is a no go) I found the... More

We stayed in the penthouse apartment in the same building and chose here on recommendation to have something to eat on our last day. Wish we had been earlier as we would most definitely have eaten here more than once. Food all fresh and lots to chose from on the menu. Kids had wraps and chilli. I had the salad... More

Many people will walk past Fresco thinking it merely a cafe. BIG mistake, HUGE mistake. As a confirmed meat eater, I know that Fresco serves THE tastiest vegetarian meals in Lagos. The flavours dance on your tongue and each mouthful is a sensational thrill all of its own. HOWEVER, Fresco does not merely serve vegetarian dishes. ALL of its food... More

I treat myself to eating in this restaurant each time I work in Lagos. There's always veggie and vegan options, the food, like the name, is fresh, and there's a great variety - from all-day breakfast to healthy salad. The staff are friendly and pleasant and the portions are ample; prices are reasonable. 5*

A wee oasis in the more residential area if Lagos but just a stones throw from the marina. Only open Monday - Saturday and it closes at 16.00. Fresh food all cooked to order and perfect for a breakfast or lunch - plenty to choose from and nice juices too.
