This place is hidden behind the Hallmark Store and Bulkheads. I recommend the combo appetizer it gave a nice arrangement of choices to try. The Asun Chicken was very good. The owners are very kind, just be patient as the service is handled by one individual in this cafe. With that being said the service was great and the food came out in a timely fashion. There was not a bad thing we ordered.

The only "criticism" is it takes forever to get your food, but the wait is totally worth it! It is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants with extra points scored for having many vegan choices!

We had a lovely meal at Funmi's Cafe. The food was delicious and we got the opportunity to chat with Funmi after. She is funny and a great cook!

ENJOY GOOD FOOD that you can tell is made fresh and just for you. YUM! It may not be a 'quick' meal because of the prep time, so plan to savor your meal. It's worth it!!

I love the food; however, the night I was there they had a real problem getting the food out of the kitchen. The wait time was about an hour and no explanation was given to the patrons. They did comp us one beverage but it would have been better had our server explained what was going on instead of leaving us in the dark.

From Our Editors

The menu at Funmi’s Café swims with the names of West African dishes, tangles of unfamiliar syllables. Kachumbari, asaro, and kelewele may sound intimidating initially, but they conceal a cuisine characterized by warmth and gentle spice. Kachumbari is an African spin on coleslaw, asaro is a goldenrod-hued yam porridge, and kelewele is a snack of fried plantains.

In the kitchen, chefs stir pots of stew and sauce, often eschewing meat and dairy to fill Funmi’s menu with vegan options. Beneath murals of circular huts on a colorful savannah, fair-trade organic coffee imported from Africa pours forth steam like a robot trying to understand the end of Of Mice and Men.
