A beautiful cafe in a beautiful area. It is clean and scenic, but the cafe itself is incredibly small. The upside of this is that it is cozy. The menu is decent, and I would say that it is a much better place to get drinks or brunch than to eat a massive meal. I have been there twice so far, and I can definitely see myself returning again.
It’s amazing how many coffee shops are beginning to pop up all over Abuja. I love it! A friend recently referred me to Café de Vie and I must say, I kinda like it. It’s pretty small but very cozy. I think that’s what I like most about it…the coziness. It’s a hard place to miss. You wouldn’t know about the place, unless someone tells you. It’s inside the same compound as an apartment/hotel (not sure which but it’s chic and probably expensive) called Bricks Point.
They don’t really have a menu, there’s a blackboard at the back in which you can just look at and pick what you want. I think it always stays the same except the meal or soup of the day. They also sell Simply Green Juices, which attracts people to the café. The first time I went there, I was trying to decide on what to get and the lady who served me (she seemed like she was part of management), let me sample the different simply green juices they had available. Yeah…definitely not for me! All of them tasted disgusting to me, but I’m in the minority, as most people love it.
Most days I’m there I just get coffee (N700) and orange juice (N800). Last time I was there I tried their chicken sandwich (N1500). It was more like a chicken salad sandwich, which is always good to me. Service is good also, most of the staff seem nice and attend to you pretty quickly. I just really like the ambiance of the place. Candles everywhere! They have books available to read and games. It’s a cute little place. Thumbs up!
