Step right up, slay lifestyle tribe! I’ve got the skinny on Dulce Cafe Ikoyi in Lagos and boy, it’s been stirring some chatter. This isn’t your typical coffee shop babble. This is the big leagues.
The place has been growing like a beast on steroids. I remember when the owner ran this joint solo. Those days had a certain charm to them, y’know? The aromas of cookies – damn those were some good cookies – pulling you in like a moth to a flame.
But alas, those days are long gone. This sweet little coffee joint decided to put its big boy pants on and expand. I can hear the corporate machinery grinding against the cogs. The taste of those cookies, once meticulously crafted, seems to be a little flat now. It appears that in the pursuit of expansion, our beloved Dulce Cafe might have left some of its soul behind.
But don’t get me wrong. It ain’t all bad, sunshine. There are goodies still lurking in the corners. The Brownie’s a solid choice – a guilty pleasure for the sweet-toothed warriors. The French Toast will transport you straight to Paris, but without the jetlag. The Cinnamon Rolls? A bold kick of Cinnamon wrapped in subtly sweet dough – it’s a sensory experience like no other. The Cookies, no longer the star of the show, still deserve a nod. And let’s not forget the Espresso Cake. It’s got that deep note of coffee that’ll make your tastebuds sing opera.
Live large, my espresso-loving brothers and sisters! Times are changing and so are our cafes. Dulce Cafe may have suit-ed up, but it still knows how to party.
With that, I leave you with the essential question – is Dulce Cafe Ikoyi still worth it? Well, like life, good things come to those who explore. So when you’re in the neighborhood, step right in, order those babies up, and let the flavor explosion determine your verdict. if you’re ’bout that life, take a bite and experience it for yourself. That’s the only way to truly know – and that’s the slay lifestyle way.
