Places in Lagos| Pit Stop Lagos

I love pretty spaces that ignite my creative juices and make me feel comfortable as soon as I walk in and Pit Stop Lagos was exactly that for me. Pit Stop Lagos is a sports and fitness inspired cafe in Victoria Island, Lagos that began operations towards the end of last year. I stopped by the cafe last month for lunch with T after searching tirelessly for a new restaurant to visit in Lagos.

AMBIENCE
The cafe has both outdoor and indoor sitting areas on the ground floor. I love how the entire space was utilized and I especially love the area with the couch and books though I didn’t sit there. I also like the fact that everywhere you look there is something to remind you of sports-it’s a sports cafe after all. There are customized mugs that serve as paper towel holders on every table, framed photographs of sportsmen and women on the walls and sports miniatures as decoration for every table. There’s also a bike shop on the first floor where bicycles and bike gears are sold.

MENU
The menu of the cafe was still being designed when we visited so we were given a temporary menu to make our selections from. I like the titles of the food options on the menu, yet another reminder that you’re in a sports cafe but I thought the prices were quite high.

WHAT WE ORDERED
We ordered Rule V (Harden the F**kup) for starters. For mains, T ordered Check Out My Six Packs and I was almost tempted to order the same thing he ordered but I decided to try Hulk Hogan with a side of fries.

Hulk Hogan & a side of fries 

I think I ate four out of the five chicken wings because T didn’t fancy them. Chicken Wings are always a fave and these ones were spicy and nice.

T’s meal came way before my food arrived and I had some of his food while I waited for a long time for mine. I’m surprised he was willing to share because the portion was small though it tasted good.

Hulk Hogan was a whole lot of food when it came and I made sure most of it made its way into my stomach😂. I realized I didn’t need the fries when I saw how huge the prawns were but it was too late to make changes to my order so I dove in. Halfway into my meal, I noticed one of my prawns wasn’t grilled right and I made a mental note to tell the Manager/Owner when she came by our table for feedback. She did come by eventually, and we gave her our honest feedback.

DAMAGE
Fries ~ 1,000
Rule V ~ 3,500
Hulk Hogan ~ 9,000
Check Out My Six Pack ~ 6,500

As usual, we didn’t do drinks but maybe next time.

Pit Stop Lagos is a nice place to grab a quick bite or a smoothie, do some work, hang with friends and family or simply just unwind. I recommend Pit Stop Lagos and I’d like to visit again soon with friends now that their menu is ready and they have a whole lot of meal options to choose from. If you intend This time, I’d sit outside, take bomb photos and hopefully have a great time.
