For the last three years, in the Historic Centre of Lagos, it has been possible to find an oasis of relaxation and calm, with comfortable seating and a great view of the passing world, while drinking a truly cosmopolitan coffee.

London Tiger Coffee was set up with the intention of serving its customers coffee exactly the way they wanted it. If you don’t like your coffee, they will make you another one. You can have it hot or iced, with regular milk or oat, almond or soy milk. You can have it with flavoured syrups, to drink in or to go.

However, only coffee would be a bit niche, so they also do tea (proper English Builder´s tea) plus a wide variety of blends and infusions, fabulous home-made cakes, and snacks such as sausage rolls, toasties, and quiche. There are many gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available.

The café is open every day from 9.30 in the morning till 10 at night and will be open until midnight come the summer months. This means that it has a slightly different identity come sun down. Everything the café sells is available throughout opening hours, but the emphasis tends to move from breakfast and afternoon tea to pre and post dinner drinks and cocktails. You can try one of their famous Espresso Martinis, a pitcher of Sangria, a refreshing glass of Prosecco, or a post dinner coffee and liqueur. Many of their regular customers pop in for pudding here, having had dinner elsewhere.

There is always something different going on throughout the year. Recently, they have made Valentine´s day biscuits, St. Patrick´s day Guinness and chocolate cupcakes, and Easter treats. For the next four weeks they will be taking part in the annual Rota do Petisco which aims to give visitors and locals alike a taste of as many restaurants as possible by serving either a sweet or savoury dish, with a drink for €2 or €3 respectively. London Tiger´s offering will be Chocolate and Banana cake with Toffee sauce and ice cream. Ask one of the Tigers for details.

If you are having difficulty getting a coffee just the way you like it, drop by and explain to one of the Tigers what you want. There is always a warm welcome and plenty of good food waiting at London Tiger Coffee, Rua Marreiros Neto 14, Lagos.
