    We love to stop in here for a quick Egg Sandwich, the best Almond Croissant and a coffee. If you want to have a more formal meal, try the Yoff Kebab or the Grilled Lamb Chops.

    OMG!!!! That's all i have to say. This place is AMAZING! Lambshanks are to die for. Melt in your mouth deliciousness! I will be back there very soon. I hope the Chef is working on that cookbook

    They have renovated yet again! Let's hope that Fish patties and Lamb shank stay on the menu. It reflects the mix of Afro\Franco\American that this place has come to rep. Many fine pastries and cafes.

    My s.o. and I love this spot. Grilled lamb chops are best & come in a huge portion size (we split it) Unfortunately for my waistline, it costs only $12 so it's hard to resist having it too often :-)

    The hot sauce is so bad it's good. I'd never mix it with the ginger drink though I know someone who can/does. Nice place!

    The food was ridiculously amazing. Service is a tad but slow but the food more than makes up for it. And the prices are fair. Get the grilled tilapia. Your life will be better.

    I love the food here. Everything smells great as soon as you walk in. The fact that it's self serve is also a plus. I can really see myself coming here again.

    The tagine was delicious, as was the peanut stew. Also, the pepper spread is yummy with the bread, but eat it sparingly, and with the mayonnaise- it's really hot!

    Had chicken kebabs, salad and plantains. All delish. Kebabs came with an onion sauce that had great flavor. Server suggested ordering the sauce warm next time. I will.

    Awesome "real" French bakery & cafe owned by Senegalese family. #Buttery, crispy, ethereal croissants.. almond, chocolate, plain.. authentically delicious! Not bad coffee either.

    The steak au poivre was really small and extra-well-done, while we asked for medium rare. Crème brûlée was small too for $5.5. The lamb chop, however, is really good and sizable.

    The grilled lamb chops and shrimp kebab were amazing. If you love spicy food, this is the place for you.. go Senegalese!

    I've only had their lamb shawarma because its one of the top shawarmas I have had! Right up there with Mamouns on MacDougal st, but a more wrapped up neat style to it

    Wow this coffee is amazing. Ordered the lamb sausage sandwich and was equally blown away. Has to be a serious Harlem Top 5

    Careful, West African food is sometimes very spicy while being very delicious at the same time.

    I don't know why I waited so long to try this place. I'd heard they have great coffee and croissants but the service left something to be desired. The coffee was great as was fresh squeezed OJ. Slow.

    Service is pretty awful, but it's a great place if you want to sit and relax for a while (while your server ignores you)!

    They don't serve shit till 11 am. Don't bother waiting in line unless all you want is plain coffee. They won't make flavored coffee or toast till after 11. No sign. Waste of time
