New coffee bar/bookshop in Abuja

A new coffee bar/café called Salamander has opened on Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse 2, next to Mama Cass (ground floor of purple painted ‘Colours in Africa’ building). It serves breakfast and lunch, as well as some dinner options.

The place is worthwhile to explore - especially if you like books and music. Inside the café, Glendora/Jazzhole – a renowned Lagos music/book shop - has opened a new branch. You’ll be pleased with their collection if you like good quality Jazz/Funk/Afro Beat and/or want to explore Nigerian music (especially Yoruba) ‘off the beaten track’.

I don't know -- I've eaten there a few times and it was pretty good, if not very pricey. But the last time my family went for breakfast, the following occurred:
We ordered our food, and around the time it would normally come out (20 minutes or so) the owners came in (they're well known in Abuja). The woman (who I think is actually the owner/manager) went into the kitchen, and came out. Then our waiter came and apologized that our food would take a while; within a minute or two their food was served after being there only a few minutes -- AND THEIR DISHES WERE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ONES WE ORDERED. Our food then came in around another 15 minutes.
I can only guess that they just went ahead and took our food, as it was pretty much ready when they arrived. This shocked and angered me, but then again -- very much the norm in Nigeria. Oh, and when we left the place, we saw that the man and woman owner had each parked their luxury vehicles so that they took up all 4 or so of the spaces in their tiny lot. The whole thing was unpleasant, and so Nigerian; strike another place off the list of possible restaurants.
