Top Three: Cafes in Greater Accra
When this chain first came to town, it meant the world to me. A place where I could go an temporarily be European over a coffee and croissant. The Airport branch opposite the New Koala Supermarket has the most interesting crowd. There is also one at Marina mall and one in Labone. Great and super quick sandwiches, coffee is ok, croissant wobbly quality. Sadly, it has become very expensive.
My typical order: Cappuccino and Roast-Beef Sandwich on brown bread. 37 GHS
Vida E Caffe
This new chain has swooped in with their Portuguese manners – they greet you loudly when you enter and exit! – and make excellent coffee, especially several cold versions that are delicious. Initially their sandwich and pastry section was bleak, during my last visit they had upped their game. Locations at the Junction Mall,
opposite the national theatre, Spintex road, and two branches in Airport City.
My typical order: Latte Grande with a Glaced Donut. 17 GHS
In Airport City, this Ghanaian-owned gem offers salads, light lunch, and coffees and pastries, all very affordable. Cafe Kwae is also the only cafe to offer Wi-Fi free of charge. Circumspecte
and Francis Quarcoopome/Time Out
were also here.
My typical order: Cappuccino (comes in a huge, yellow, beautiful cup!) and Cafe Kwae Slide (three mini burgers ) 41 GHS
