My wife and I have been here for lunches and afternoon and evening coffee breaks. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The pastries and breads are always super fresh and tasty. When we want something guaranteed to be good, we go here.

I have been to this place several times just to get my favourite café latté; they offer the best in town. I saw they also sell baked stuff and it seems delicious, but I haven't tried any. It has a nice terrasse, too, if you want to enjoy your coffee outside especially on a Sunday morning where the street is... More

It was a great experience. The staff were extremely helpful and hospitable, I tried the Flan which was OK, the Salmon and potato bread was out of this world, the olive flute bread was amazing

You can get an equally delicious pain aux amandes or au chocolate for less in Dakar, but the atmosphere at Eric Kayser is why we pay more. Service is attentive but spotty; our order was completely wrong when first delivered but quickly corrected. Not sure it's worth it, but also not sure I can stop going.

Probably the best bakery in Dakar (there are two others of quality ). Their patisseries are delicious, the people are friendly. It's just in front of the President's home, so easy to find.

We actually ordered a chocolate cake to be delivered for my son's second birthday. Instead of a birthday cake arriving, we received a chocolate that was dry and stale. This was very disappointing since we had heard many good things about this bakery.

This has to be my favorite patisserie in Dakar. They have officially overtaken the 2 others. Food is fresh, you have a great variety for the cakes and sandwiches. I am never disappointed when i order something at Kayser.
