Matcha Café Dakar
Tea house
👍👍 Cozy little fusion sushi place. Tried the number 1 salmon combo, the samurai combo. Also the wakame, dumplings, the tiramisu and green matcha cheesecake. Lots of green. Great service. Cordon bleu chef. Check it out.

Pause Douceur (The Cake Shop)
Tea house
👍👍 Had a spa day downtown, and decided to stop here for brunch/lunch based on a recommendation. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in. It was nicely decorated and was small but well layed out. I had the chicken avocado grilled sandwich with potatoe salad. It was soooo good. My wife has the Armeni...

Coffee Loft Dakar image
Coffee Loft Dakar
👍👍 Amazing Coffee shop + great restaurant. The coffee shop part is just fantastic. Literally had 3 different coffees in one day and enjoyed them all. The coffee shop area was quiet and a great place to work from. The lady handling the coffee shop part (Florence I think) was really professional and took...

Art gallery
👍👍 We went today a group of friends to Loman Art House to admire the place, the art inside it and the cuisine. We ordered in advance Moroccan food. The place is an oasis of beauty, calm and happiness. The art is original and telling. The food was fantastic (entrees followed by three types of tagine and...

Un'Instant - Pâtisserie - Restaurant - Salon de thé
👍👍 Très bon restaurant, avec un service impeccable, courtois, et une bouffe délicieuse. Je vous recommande leur Suprême de volaille accompagné d’un smoothie banane fraise. J’ai bien aimé la déco, très sympa, et l’air, à chaque fois, d’être un peu comme chez soi

Lulu Cafe
Furniture store
😠 I’m disappointed today with this restaurant . It’s both of my sons birthdays and the place I chose for them was Lulu cafe just because I thought their burger was nice once in the past . We ordered 3 burgers , the meat came up so burnt , too much sauce and a spicy one , the bread was old and the sal...

👍 A popular place tohave ice- cream in Dakar (2000 Cefa, ~ 3€ for two generous scoops of ice-cream). The pistachio icecream was just amazing, and the most "interesting" one was vanial charcoal icecream. They have nice air-conditioned place to sit but it might be crowded depding on time of visit. The s...

Layu Café image
Layu Café
👍 The other Layu Café in Almadies and this Layu are obviously similar but have their own distinctiveness as well. The Layu in Almadies has more of a cozy ambience because of the yellow lights, couches, and booths, as opposed to the Point E Layu which has more of a modern and industrial layout. This La...

Mammy Healthy
Coffee shop
👍 Very good restaurant. Beautiful decoration, impeccable service, concept to salute. I really liked the idea of ​​being able to compose your own salad with the desired ingredients: it's time that everyone only pays for what they have eaten! Food-wise: the beef skewers on the menu were excellent and t...

Layu Cafe image
Layu Cafe
👍👍 A great place, if not the best in Dakar, for focus working, learning or just chilling… I’ve experienced teamwork and meetings in two Layu places and it went so smoothly and well that you feel like you are in a company meeting room (but more cozy) or a library. Keep it in mind next time you want some...

La Deliziosa Gelato - Yaourt - Café
Ice cream shop
😠 Bad customer service a girl with an Afro and glasses was super rude towards us and would always roll her eyes at us. When we were trying to pick our flavors she did not even give us the time to pick what we really wished for because she was so in a rush even though no one was in the store. For the...

😠 A éviter. Ils m’ont fait payer le café expresso à 2000 FCFA hors qu’il y était inscrit ´1000’ FCFA sur leur carte. Ils ont probablement vu que j’étais étrangère du coup ils m’ont arnaqué. De plus le café n’était pas bon, je ne recommande pas.
