While the coffee and desserts at Eric Kayser are worth the visit, service is extremely slow and staff are unattentive. When I visited we had wait for over a half hour just to get a menu and had to repeatedly ask for our order.

This is heaven on earth! Every type of dessert you can imagine and they have WiFi! Everything is made fresh and the staff is friendly and fast!

No WC in the place, looks like it’s stuck in 1976... No reason for that, they looked busy, so clearly they should be able to fix it up a bit

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.

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.
