Simone Cafe is a Brazilian dessert house in the heart of Dakar. They serve Brazilian snacks and coffee along with a selection of delicious cakes and cheesecakes. If you prefer, you can also order tea, soda or regular coffee, but the desserts are definitely not to be missed.
The coffee culture in Dakar has its quirks. There's nothing quite like buying a tiny plastic cup of extra sweetened coffee from a street vendor. But as the city has become ever more cosmopolitan and worldly, and as international influences have become more and more a part of life in the Senegalese capital, Western-style cafes have been popping up throughout the city. Below are some suggestions for those wanting to escape the hustle of the city to enjoy a hot coffee, a quick snack, or a creamy dessert.
