Baobab House

The small Vegetarian Restaurant is the perfect place to rest during your visit in Cape Coast. It lies between the Castle and the Market amidst the busy town. Our patio, built in traditional style, has a nice view over the sea and the busy Atta Mills Avenue. Our friendly staff of 9 people are 100 % Ghanaian. 6 of them are former students of our Baobab School. Students of our school learn catering, cooking and practice their English. Our chef Madam Christie prepares together with Vida and Rose delicious healthy vegetarian snacks and meals- local and continental. Every day we offer a daily local dish.Our dishes with fresh tofu, soy chunks or oyster mushrooms are the specialty of our restaurant. Vegetable Pies, Banana Cakes and Coconut Cakes are all made with whole-wheat flour. Fresh Pineapple-Moringa Juice, Bisap or Ginger Juice are a must if you visit the Baobab Vegetarian Moringa Restaurant. All vegetables we use are washed in saltwater and many come from the school-owned Organic Farm.

I was so excited to find a vegetarian restaurant after spending 3 months in Ghana. I was slightly disappointed that my first 3 choices where not available (not tofu, pizza, smoothies, or yam) but we enjoyed our salad and Sandwich (the other food I ordered never showed up). I'm hoping that we just came on a bad night and they'll have more of the options on their menu in the future.

Unlike some other reviews of this restaurant, my experience was both positive and enjoyable. My pizza was tasty and more than enough to satisfy my hunger. My two colleagues also enjoyed their food.

Oasis Beach Resort Restaurant

Reviewed By Krzysztof D

This is one of the best places to stay along the Gold Coast, and probably the best in Cape Coast town. It has direct access to the beach, the restaurant is very good and the bungalows, some with shared facilities, are relatively well maintained, although still rustic for your great African experience. This is a very popular place with expects and NGO workers, so it gets booked quickly, particularly at the weekends. The bar is a lively social spot for both the locals and the visitors and coverts into an open air club at weekends.

Hayford Lounge and Bar

Reviewed By Moodleprof - London, United Kingdom

Went on the recommendation of the guidebook, but Hayfords was slightly disappointing. At lunch, i was the only person in the place, which slightly concerns me - clearly not hugely popular. chicken jollof rice was OK, and good portion, but I think overpriced at 27 GHC, compared to other places I visited. Friendly staff but no WiFi offered. I didn't go back.

Kokodo Restaurant

Reviewed By Harry B - Paris, Texas, United States

This place is great. I think its the fourth time we have been there. Ghana is now so overpriced for poor service and poor quality, so its such a welcome and refreshing feeling to experience consistently good food at a good price. The service is good and although we only ever stayed over the one night the rooms were spacious and clean and a bed so big we had no problem with the kids sleeping with us.
Best thing about this place is that if you are travelling up and down the coast esp. Accra to Takoradi it a great pit stop to break the journey up and have a good lunch prior to setting off again. Their Terrace has a great view and a better breeze. Check it out

Emperor Ital Joint

Reviewed By Jessica H - Louisville, Kentucky

Emperor Ital Vegan Restaurant was a surprise find! All the locals recommend Kenya and his restaurant. We walked in and were very nervous but it was the best meal we had in Ghana. I had the veggie burger and it was amazing. Kenya typically makes one meal a day, but he ran out and we ordered something. He ran to the store to get the ingredients and it was definitely worth the wait. Don't be put off by the small building or cheap costs. It was a wonderful meal.

New Life Cafe

Reviewed By Frankie M

We met Kofi and Africa by chance and accepted their invitation to their restaurant - New Life Cafe. We're glad that we did! The all-natural and intriguing menu items appealed to all 11 in our group (about 2/3 of the quaint capacity) with favorites including the chocolate /banana and pineapple/ginger pancakes, as well as the New Life Potatoes. We also sampled a number of the juices which were all yummy. Try the soy peanut butter and chocolate smoothie!
It's great to interact with the same person taking your order, preparing and serving your meal, including the quick trip out for the freshest ingredients. If you're more than a couple, it would be nice to call ahead so that they're able to obtain what you want. While you're waiting or resting after a good meal, there are a number of adjacent shops with the same positive vibe. Go visit and enjoy!

Gramsddel J

"A local gem in the heart of Elmina, since 1994!" Gramsddel J is a very popular local restaurant and beach bar in the middle of historic Elmina, with great view of the historic Elmina Castle in Ghana. Established since 1994, Gramsddel J is a local hotspot with a tasty range of dishes including local Ghanaian dishes, African-fusion, American fare and Vegan/Vegetarian fare. All the food is fresh, especially the seafood dishes prepared from the day's catch. Chef's daily special for vegan and vegetarian dishes available upon request.

Reviewed By Krzysztof D

The spot has one of the best views in Elmina overlooking the main beach and the mighty fortress. It is a rustic place with facilities requiring much maintenance, particularly at the beachfront, but it is a lovely breeze place and they will open the beachfront section (often not used by the locals) if you ask. This is mainly for drinks, as the food is somewhat below average.
