Nestled almost at the end of Admiralty Way in Lekki Phase 1, i also gave up looking for this place as i was weighed down by traffic and hunger. Not the best combination to be stuck with on a hot sunny afternoon.
Nevertheless, finally spotted this tiny cafe and it felt like i found an oasis in the middle of a hot scorching desert. Needless to say, the first thing I wanted was a nice cold drink and was recommended the “Green Clean” juice. Thankfully, the cold refuge didn’t take too long to get to me and i ravaged it with such need. You must be thinking… oh my, why so much drama in this write-up? Getting into the Game of Thrones mode i guess.
Anyway, i digressed, the cafe itself is teeny-tiny!! There are 3 tables max that is arranged in a rather “school canteen” kind of fixture. More a place you either do really really REALLY quick meals, or just order take-out. In my 45 mins there, i counted at least 2 take-out requests.
The menu selection, as the name of the cafe suggests, is a take on healthy eating. An eclectic mix African and continental delights such as spicy snails, grilled red snapper, pepper soup to couscous, whole wheat pasta and quinoa. It’s quite an interesting menu, which healthy smoothies and juices to boost the selection of healthy delights.
The juice was delightfully fresh and i gave it extra points for getting served up quick. The red snapper though…….. took a while…. I should be grateful that they are preparing it fresh, but it did take a while and unfortunately, it came uncooked as well. And there goes another wait for a properly done fish. The second try at the fish was good though. The red snapper was fresh and the accompanying couscous was yummy. Flavors were good, but wish the service was much quicker. In a cafe, where seats are so limited and people are pushing for delivery or take-out, time is really the essence.
Definitely can see potential in this place and would come back again to try other stuff on the menu. I’ll be smarter next time around though and will call and order ahead.
Eatcleancafe is an amazing place to be, the staff are friendly and their meals are supper tasty, interesting and really healthy. I love the fact that they keep the calories down unlike other Nigerian restaurants. And their power juices are great for anyone feeling down. If you love clean and healthy food then, you should try them out.
There’s a new healthy spot in town. Yipeeee! Eat Green Restaurant Lagos is the “yummy way to healthy”. It’s perfect if you want to step out to relax with a colleague or a friend during your lunch break. We love that they have clean eating options to suit any diet. Even better, they are very open to amendments to your order in order to cater to your nutrition needs. It’s definitely worth noting that their menu has options for people that are not about that fitfam life.
