New Coffee House in Lagos – My Coffee Lagos

Weekends have become so so busy right now and in a little bit, things will go back to normal. While running errands, spotted this new coffee shop in Victoria Island with its bold sign “My Coffee Coffee House” and went in to grab a sandwich and some hot chocolate.

While I was trying to make a choice on what to buy, I noticed it was just expats/foreigners in the Coffee shop and not too long after it hit me, they were mostly Ukrainians and the owner or lady/fam who runs the place are from Ukraine. A friend of mine was getting some work done there apparently and she was like she had been the only dark skinned person there for a while until I showed up.

My Coffee Lagos is a fresh brand and franchise from Ukraine, Russia and generally Eastern European countries. The Coffee House/Shop is small and quite cute and can probably sit in like 12 – 15 people at a time (yeah that tiny) The staff were extremely warm and friendly and it was just a generally relaxing atmosphere and quiet as well.  Its been opened for about 2/3 weeks now and the family who runs the place has been living in Lagos for about three (3) years now with a Salon/Spa which is popular among the expat community.

I had the Croissant with Salmon and a medium cup of hot chocolate (cups of different sizes are available). The Croissant with Salmon was a first for me which is strange because I always have Sushi and its usually raw but to have a Sandwich with raw Salmon, I was not ready (lol) more like fear coz’ I’d usually have a Chicken sandwich or a BLT but never Salmon. It was really nice and the cream cheese just hit the right spot!

The hot chocolate by the way was really surprising for me because (1), the cup was half full and (2) it was ₦1,000 (lol). I think the staff noticed I was quite confused as to why my mug was not full to the brim and was quick to let me know it was really really thick – thick enough to have as a hot dessert instead. I was like oooh and aaah I see and after a few spoons, I finished it really fast and didn’t even bother to add some hot water. The hot chocolate reminded me so much of a Molten Chocolate Fondant Cake (oh yassss that ooey gooey good inside). I just really wish it could have been a little bit more than what was served.

I really liked how clean, well lit and neat the interior was. There’s also free wi-fi for customers and could be suitable for those looking to work out of the office on a weekend. Car park space is limited too.

    Hi guys! This is a quote from your initial review: “While I was trying to make a choice on what to buy, I noticed it was just expats/foreigners in the Coffee shop…. A friend of mine was getting some work done there apparently and she was like she had been the only dark skinned person there for a while until I showed up…”
    Two weeks passed. We celebrated ‘1000 happy clients served by our place’. And amazing thing is that 70% of them are local people.
    Now guess why?:)

    […] — Nigeria is slowly joining the coffee revolution. Actually it’s really just Lagos. Two new cafes, MyCoffee Lagos and Blueberrys Cafe opened recently on the Island. The reception for MyCoffee, the Ukrainian-franchise coffee shop run by Ukrainian(s) in Lagos has been positive so far (see here and here). […]
