An eternity later, here we are with another Spaces post!

We visited Art Cafe & The Homestores recently, but we won’t overwhelm you – so we’re breaking it up into two parts. Art Cafe today, Homestores following soon.

Art Cafe is a cosy coffee shop in Victoria Island, Lagos. Although we loved the cappuccino, we were really there for the ambiance: the particular details and thought that went into every single poster or furniture that made the final cut. With the art, vintage posters and quirky furniture, the space gave off a warm, jazzy, old-timey feel.


The Cafe flows out of the warm indoor space to a trellis-shaded outdoor area with all the gorgeous details: the little lanterns, the rustic light shades, the prettiest flowers…ArtCafe_23_1200ArtCafe_03_1200ArtCafe_04_1200ArtCafe_05_1200ArtCafe_06_1200ArtCafe_07_1200ArtCafe_24_1200ArtCafe_09_1200

I hope you can feel some of that delicious warmth we’ve been gushing about. Go visit, have a cup of coffee, some banana bread and just luxuriate in this space. We did.

Art Cafe is at 282, Akin Olugbade Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
