There are plenty of brunch spots in the city, but if you’ve had your fill of avocado toast and eggs benedict, you can go a different route. Try some of the suggestions below and start your day with hot khachapuri, chicken pies, flower milk or new age milk with cereals.
For chicken pie and ladenia in Pagrati
Raw material at the center, small producers, seasonality – everything that characterizes food in Accra could not be missing from breakfast. Here we forget about hollandaise and avocado toast and try a really interesting, basically Greek, brunch with organic eggs, pies and the fantastic sourdough bread made in-house, from Greek flour, without additives. Every day they also offer different things. Among what one can find: honey eggs with fire-roasted tomatoes, omelette with courgette blossoms, pie with rooster or wild herbs, ladenia (with or without pastrami), warm sourdough bread with Naxos arsenic, jam and honey, croissants with burnt butter and cinnamon. Plus the very good coffee.

For anthogalo and egg eyes in Omonia
Old fashioned brunch is served in Stani. The historic Omonia dairy fills us up in the mornings with sheep yogurt, sour and skinned, with the true taste of milk sourced from mountainous Corinthia. It comes in a square piece, standing on its plate, accompanied by honey and walnuts for anyone who asks for it. Rice pudding, loukumades and, especially, antogalo – a fine milky mousse like whipped cream, also served with honey – are some of the other products worth trying. The “hidden” paper of the menu: eggs, plain, plain, fried in butter.

For khachapuri on September 3rd
At Imerouli, the bakery run by two Greek-Georgian families on the 3rd of September, you will watch the fresh dough being prepared in the open workshop. With these they make delicious cheese toast, bean pies, meat pies with peppery minced meat and many more baked goods that you can take and enjoy in your hand. But you can also sit at one of the tables outside on the sidewalk and enjoy your khachapuri – a soft, juicy cheese bread – hot. It’s not the most charming setting, but there, at the edge of the bustling street, the brunch is handmade, affordable and different from the usual.

For cereal with milk otherwise, in the Constitution
Wild Souls, one of our favorite vegan shops in town, operates as both a cafe and a grocery store. From there you can buy quality nuts, handmade butters and nut milks as well as special sugar and palm oil free halva (don’t leave without hazelnut halva and almond butter). In the same bright, lively space, however, you can also sit down to enjoy a delicious vegan brunch with rich smoothies (enhanced with homemade butters and fruit milks), fantastic granola with fresh forest fruits served in a bowl with nut milk or slices of bread , spread with crunchy almond butter with cocoa and dates, along with fresh fruit.
