Loved this cafe so much we went back a couple of times while in Lagos for a week . Banana milkshakes and fresh juices are awesome and food is nice also, salads are huge and delicious, I would also recommend the boras tapas. Great value, two for lunch with a few drinks and it was about €15. Good mix of locals and tourists, good service and free wifi. The perfect spot for a drink or lunch in their shaded outdoor seating.

If you are looking for somewhere to fall after walking the marina in old town this is a very loved cafe. We stumbled upon it weary from the sun we have longed for all year. Were met by 2 very young but very capable young ladies who made us feel just as welcome for our 2 coffees and mineral water as if we had arrived for dinner. We enjoyed watching life pass us by drinking superb coffee. Our bill came to €4.40 for the 3 items - exceptional value for the location and quality of coffee. One piece of advice would be to ask for a jug of hot milk and boiling water as on a scale of 1 to 10 their coffee strength is at 12! Well done to the principals behind this authentic cafe (there may be an element of context to this review- we were tired and glad of a place to rest our weary bones ). Can't go wrong for a coffee on the go.

Visited this quirky little cafe twice for breakfast. They served us the biggest bowl of fresh fruit, muesli and yogurt I've ever seen. A really lovely chilled out space, perfect.

The cheese/meat platter (tapas?) wasn't very nice. Had baby bell and laughing cow cheese!? Isn't this supposed to be portugal?? Meat was also very bland. On the other hand the coffee was perfect.

Was hidden away down a side street, unusual decoration and simple menu.

Covered all basis and added their own unique twist to what was delivered.

A lovely visit, thank you.
