The Orchid Bistro Express 40B Raymond Njoku Street, Ikoyi, Lagos 0808  4568 824     One of Ikeja’s favorites – Orchid Bistro has opened up in Ikoyi and is called The Orchid Bistro Express. It shares the same space with an interior design company which I had first mistaken to be the Bistro. How we ended up at this place on Sunday was because we were looking for where to have ‘affordable’ breakfast as the usual suspects didn’t make sense price-wise.   The space is so pretty, clean and has natural lighting beautifully illuminating the Bistro. The simple and minimalist décor […]

New Coffee House in Lagos – My Coffee Lagos

My Coffee  Lagos 40B Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island 0811  5888 885     Weekends have become so so busy right now and in a little bit, things will go back to normal.

Healthy Eating with Smoothie Express

Smoothie Express Online Only 0909 9319 266, 0909 9319 267   Today I decided to try out a salad and smoothie from Smoothie Express, a Smoothie delivery company in Lagos just because I haven’t tried out other varieties of healthy vendors besides Green Grill House . Though I had tried two smoothies for science purposes (that didn’t make it to the blog) and didn’t love it as much and since it’s a new year, decided to give it another go.       Ordering was very simple and kudos to them with their online order system via their website.

You can connect with us via Instagram which is always live so follow on there if you aren’t. It seems Awolowo road in Ikoyi seems to have some hidden and not so hidden spots and accidentally stumbled upon The Freshly Ground Coffee Co.       At first glance, it looks like an abandoned building with loads of space or more like a ghost town with minor construction work ongoing. The major building has […]
