Located on a quiet corner in Vic Island (where Karimu Kotun and Olosa Street meet), Caffe Tranche is much quieter than nearby competitors such as Paris Deli, mainly because it lacks Wi-Fi. Decor-wise it’s a monochromatic mix of black plastic chairs and tables against white washed walls. Colour comes mainly from a small range of locally produce art prints on a variety of themes mainly Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and Lagos city/waterscapes. All prints are available for sale should you desire.
The food menu is a continental selection of hot and cold food and ranges between N1800 for chicken wings to N4200 for a T-bone steak. On my visit not all selections were available and none of the fresh fruit smoothies on the menu were on offer. There’s also an in-house bakery, which sells a small range of cakes and pastries and will happily provide a cake decorating service for birthdays and special occasions.
It may just have been the Valentine’s decorations hanging limply from the ceiling, or the blend of Phil Collins and Boyzone piped over the speakers, but to me Caffe Tranche gave off a slightly forlorn air, and given the choice, I would opt for Paris Deli around the corner every time. That being said, if you want a quiet space to read, or you’re looking for a spot for a clandestine assignation, staff are reserved and happy to leave diners to their own devices.
From the menu it appears that the cafe does get a little livelier in the evening as there are a range of champagne cocktails on offer. It’s by no means a copious selection, but it does have the cheapest ‘Old fashioned’ in Lagos at N1500 and a small patio space surrounded by potted plants in which to enjoy it.
