“A GREAT ESCAPE FROM AFRICAN FOOD”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Very clean and well run with european dishes and the food you miss from home. Rather pricy if on a budget but a great meeting place for NGO workers. You can even buy yesterdays Daily Mail outside. The AC is coooool!

“The place for lunch when visiting Freetown”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Breads, pastries, sandwiches, fried chicken, and good coffee bring in most expats and a large local clientele. As noted in earlier reviews, movers and shakers eat here. But so do students, oil field folks, filmmakers, NGO workers, missionaries, and others. Tables are close together so take the opportunity to chat up folks adjacent to you. Everybody has a story; usually two or three.

Caveat: this is not the place to discuss work over lunch.

“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is the most reliable of all the restaurants in the city center and you can't sit through lunch hour without seeing some of the movers and shakers of the country passing through.

“Decent Food”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

It is a nice place with a 1950's American soda shop feel about it.
The fried chicken and hamburgers are nice. I would buy and try anything on the menu.
