Another New(ish) Opening

Time's Cafe
That apostrophe is annoying isn't it. A shame as they've got pretty much everything else right. Time's Cafe (how annoying....) is decked out in a retro American diner style and serves up a smart selection of flavoured coffees, hot and cold chocolates, pizzas, omelettes, sandwiches, burgers, snacks and ice cream.

Mrs Jiffler tries the 'Midnight Fever' chilled coffee - a decadent mix of espresso, milk, toffee, banana and chocolate. Foodwise we both opt for manakish (I'm slowly developing an addiction to these) as a mid-Saturday-morning snack, but I wish I'd had room to try one of the burgers. Is there anywhere in Dakar where you can get a really decent burger? The ones I buy from Le Palace on Thursday nights/Friday mornings when I'm three sheets to the wind are truly vile.

I'd recommend popping into Time's cafe for a coffee next time you're in Plateau and the hustle and bustle is getting you down.

Time's Cafe
27 Avenue Roume, Plateau.
tel: 33 821 21 68
Open 7 days a week, 7am to 11pm
Delivery service starting mid-February.

I'm back from Central Asia now, if you're interested, you can read about what I ate there on Experimental Jifflings.

My kingdom for a decent burger!!

I've tried Steers and it minged.

Everywhere burgers appear a sloppy, over-condimented, car accident of a greasy mess.

The CCF's are alright though
