Josie’s Cuppa Cappuccino: Cosy with arguably the best staff in Accra
My Dad and I had spent most of the day on MyWeku restaurant business. We had trekked to the Westland area of West Legon to buy plants for landscaping. We had also stopped off briefly at the Tayiba bar and grill for a quick super malt refill. As if that wasn’t enough we headed off to the Marina malt at Airport city to buy takeaway jollof rice and waache. Since we were in the area we stopped off at Josie’s Cuppa Cappuccino.
I had heard this was a popular intimate little caffe and bistro that had become an institution in its own right in the East Airport residential area. This of course was a plush area with a sizeable number of high net worth individuals and expatriates.
My Dad ordered ice mint tea whilst I went for the ice Cappuccino. Both arrived in reasonable time. Not that we would have been bothered anyway, we had come to “chillax” and were more interested in talking about the plants that surrounded us. In any case, there was a waitress on hand hawkishly looking in our direction all the time we were there just in case we needed anything. At least on one occasion another waitress came over to ask if we were OK or needed anything else so she could be of service. All this attention coupled with the warm and friendly manner of the staff seriously got me thinking if I had experienced a better service elsewhere in Accra. This was first class stuff.
As we drank our beverages, a group of about 15 ladies most in hats stepped out into the street from inside Josie’s cuppa cappuccino. I immediately thought that they’d probably come in for an event, one that perhaps had hats as its theme or perhaps it was some kind of hat launch event. Anyway, whatever it was, it seemed to me that they had come to the right place. This was a lovely space for a small intimate gathering with arguably the best trained staff in town.
