Baobab is a small restaurant with just a few outdoor tables that is popular with foreign tourists. The menu has many interesting things to eat and drink and the three of us each enjoyed our different choices, all of which were reasonably priced.

Decently cheap prices, good food, recommend the kuntumrie (palava sauce), also try out the organic pineapple juice! Service is good and it's a place mostly frequented by tourists. I was sceptical to the whole place because it was a vegan restaurant but don't let that...More

Description
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 Commercial Street. Friendly students of our school learn catering, cooking and practice their English. Together with our cook Christie, the students prepare delicious healthy vegetarian meals, snacks and juices. Our dishes with fresh tofu, soy and wheat 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.
