Locally grown produce and inventive taste profiles make this experience truly magical as it all unfolds by the light of the lantern.
09:00 AM | Brunch Vibes at Cafe Kwae
Does a Guava Mimosa sound like a good start to your day? How about having an unlimited supply? Cafe Kwae's brunch menu is one of the few that does global breakfast staples like french toast and pancakes really, really well.
Paired with the unlimited guava mimosas you'll quickly find that brunch may turn to lunch and dinner when the enjoyment levels are so high.

08:00 PM | Keep it Classy At Urban Grill
You've been doing the local stops for nearly 24 hours, now it's time to get fancy at one of the most beautiful restaurants in town.
Grab your peeps and your Saturday night outfit because Carbon Nightclub is just upstairs making the transition to the pregame super easy.
If you prefer to keep the yummy morsels flowing opt for a Bad and Bougee food crawl through all of Accra's gourmet options.
11:00 AM | Traditional Ghanaian Brunch at Labadi Beach Hotel
Palms and Palm wine is what you'll be feeling after spending your afternoon at Labadi Beach Hotel's infamous Sunday lunch.
