Nice food. You can choose your spice level. The meal is prepared when you order, so don't expect fast food. Portions are generous. If you have never had any African food before you should try this. There is nothing on the menu that would scare anyone, and what I've had has been delicious.

Spicy so be prepared. Best plantains in town and in several dishes so not just offered one way.

Funmi is waiting to hear from the State re to a Wine and Beer License. Hopefully, the license will be granted shortly. Till then, Funmi will allow patrons to bring in a bottle. This restaurant is a really delightful taste of Nigerian cuisine!!

Since this was my first visit, I enjoyed getting one of the platters that allow you to sample some of their main dishes. I got the Vegan 2, and loved it!

About Funmi’s Café

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.
