Soo we are interrupting our usual programming to bring you this jewel of a place. On this edition of #CaféSundays we would like to introduce you to Kalakut Café. This is about to be the coolest spot in Abuja and the team has got all you need to know here first.
The café is tucked away in one of the corners of Aso Drive, housed in the former American Embassy (yes I know how weird that sounds just keep reading and take a look at the pictures). Once you drive in, it is far from the Embassy vibes you might have though it had. Kalakut is placed in a number of containers (Again just keep reading, No be the container wey you dey see for outside), that are strategically placed and very aesthetically pleasing. Within the same building is a variety of office spaces, game room, gym and other chill spots. Based on logistics (s/o to Efe from BBN) the placement of the cafe allows you to use the various other spots in the compound with ease.
There is a roof-top area which gives the perfect view of Aso Rock and another lower outdoor area which is still being worked on (however, as the owner described his vision for this area, we already know that it will BANG). Inside there is a little corner where the friendliest and most attentive Barista makes the drinks. The interior is very modern and almost takes you out of Nigeria for a minute.
We ordered fresh pineapple juice, a caramel frappe and a caramel latte. All these drinks were perfect and there were no complaints from the team. At the moment all they serve is drinks and a variety of cakes. However, in the weeks to come the owner assured us that various other types of food will be available. If you are a coffee connoisseur and you appreciate good coffee then this is definitely the place for you. If you’re also someone who appreciates a good place to unwind with a great view and the possibility of taking some bomb pictures then “Bob’s your uncle”.
To cut the long story short if you are looking for a new place to hang out…check out Kalakut café.
PS: This is not a sponsored post…we just really loved the cafe.
