Delicious vegan options

A few vegan options, what they offered was delicious! Great spot for a casual lunch to bring family / friends who may not be vegan themselves but appreciate warm African spices. The black eyed pea stew and plantains were 10/10, great selection of drinks as well!

Pros: Great value, Delicious food

Cons: Limited menu

Cafe at African center

This cafe is located inside the African center on the corner of 5th and Central Park North. The cuisine is African. The selection is not broad--but what they have is very good, with ample and tasty food for vegans. The food is counter serve. Aside from the Jordan Pie Cafe a few blocks north, this is the best vegan-friendly place in the area.

Pretty good but nothing special

I was a bit disappointed, I didn’t find back the taste from other African restaurants I tried before but it is still a decent option if you are in the area. Be careful their tend to run out of food later in the day, I had to come back cause the first time they almost had nothing left !

Pros: Clearly labeled vegan option, Fu-fu bowl allow you to try different flavors

Cons: A little pricey , Not as good as other African restaurants I tried , They run out of food options later at night

A joy for vegans! A revelation; great setting overlooking Central Park.

I came here after reading a great review in the New Yorker magazine. It’s a beautiful, colorful environment, with wonderful views and huge windows overlooking the park. The many vegan options are delicious, and each item unique and distinct from each other. Peanut sauce is not something we find every day! Big beautiful wooden tables and unique seating all around. I like that it is counter service, so there is no waiting for food. Even the desserts were vegan, including a mango coconut pudding.

I do wish it were open later, as of now it seems to close at 7pm.

Pros: Lots of truly unique African options. , Very fresh ingredients. , Colorful, bright interior.

Cons: Closes at 7, closed Mondays.

awesome bowls

My omni friends and I stopped by and they both loved the fu-fu bowl but I recommend DIY: jollof fonio, ndambe, beets and fonio salad, black eyed pea salad, and yassa. The table sauces are vegan-friendly except for the clearly labeled fish sauce. I’d give this place five stars if the app would let me.

Pros: gluten-free and dairy-free, incredibly spacious, free lemon-infused water
