    Cactus

    This place labels itself primarily as a patisserie, but it also serves up proper meals throughout the day. Breakfasts of pancakes or bacon are good, as are the pizzas, and the club sandwiches with salad and chips are simply huge – excellent value at N1800. Giant fresh juices cost N1200.

    Ikoyi Hotel Suya

    Lagosians claim the best suya in town can be found at the stall outside the Ikoyi Hotel. Not just beef and goat, but chicken, liver and kidney, plus some great fiery pepe (pepper) to spice it all up.

    Art Cafe

    A lovely little cafe-pub which also sells arts and crafts. It does good coffee and snacks, and the laid-back arty vibe is a nice contrast to the bland feel of parts of Victoria Island.
