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 .
