Lagos is the busiest city in Nigeria and the energy level literally remains at a certain standard despite weather conditions. Although Lagosians cannot be termed as coffee drinkers, those who do drink coffee do it for the fix and for the entire experience of it.
So, if you are a coffee drinker and want another experience apart from the normal, here are the places you should go to.
- Cafe Neo: This coffee shop with branches around Lagos offers delicious homegrown coffee in addition to a comfortable and relaxing ambience for both work and play. Cafe Neo started in 2012 when brothers Ngozi Dozie and Chijioke Dozie began a coffee roasting business in Lagos. They intend to spread tasty and quality goodness throughout the country and the continent of Africa as a whole. Their opening hours are 7:00 am -6:00 pm.
- Cafe Vergnano/Double Four: They claim to serve what is arguably the best Italian coffee in Lagos and have an emphasis on relaxed cafe culture. This café is a good choice firstly because it’s situated within the ever busy Palms Mall in Lekki and they actually have good coffee, so it’s a win-win. They open from Sunday to Saturday from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm.
- Art Cafe: This is an artistic coffee shop and bar that offers lovely food, great drinks and good coffee. You can enjoy your cup of coffee or organic tea. Art Cafe is said to satisfy your morning cravings for strong coffee before work. They open from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm all week.
- La Pointe Cafe: La Pointe Cafe offers you the option of getting your coffee brewed right in front of you. Everything about the coffee shop screams “good coffee” with a side of classic snacks. You can take a break from shopping at the store downstairs, go upstairs and get yourself a freshly brewed coffee.
- The Jazzhole: This hole is on Awolowo Road in Ikoyi and comes highly recommended as coffee meets music meets books in an artistic setting. It’s every coffee and books or coffee and music lover’s kind of setting.
- Delis Cafe: Delis cannot be categorically called a Cafe or Coffee shop as it also has a bar, and then they also have food. It can be termed bar-meets-cafe as one side of it looks like a coffee shop and the other side looks like the bar. Its setting overlooks the street and you can have pretty much any variety of coffee you prefer with a snack of choice.
- Krispy Kreme: Just in case you term all the above as too pricey, the coffee at Krispy Kreme will fit into your budget. They serve 100% Proudly Nigerian Coffee and it is available in up to 9 different varieties. They also have doughnuts to go with it.
