I’m sure there are countless times we all rush out of bed in the morning, get ready and head straight to work without even thinking about breakfast, food can wait, right? Well not anymore, with the food industry booming in Nigeria, more ingenious brands are tapping into the fast-paced lifestyle that comes with living in Lagos. From traditional Nigerian food to western options and healthy parfaits, we’ve picked five places where fast food and affordability merge. These are our top five places to order food straight to your office!
NO. 1: EKAARO
With a catchy Yoruba greeting and a brand centred on roots, Ekaaro is one delivery service that has it all: affordable prices, fast delivery, great customer service and healthy but still traditional food options. They deliver widely to Yaba, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Marina and Lekki and still impress me with their sweet potato and egg sauce with Zobo combo. You can order a day before and head on over to your office and your food will be with you around 11 am. Follow them on Instagram @helloekaaro. They get five thumbs up!
NO. 2: SO FRESH
So Fresh has built an outstanding reputation in the healthy food industry. From salads to juices, parfaits and smoothies, wraps and sandwiches, they are the go-to restaurant for the health conscious individual and those of us who are watching our waistline. With a real connection to their customers with tips and events, they have cornered the market and continue to build, they have a great fresh market and store and offer fruit in unique ways. With great customer service, healthy food options and affordable prices they also get five thumbs up! Follow them on Instagram: @sofreshng
NO. 3: BRITTANY’S PLACE
It’s hard not to throw any diet plans you may have had away after opening Brittany’s Place’s Instagram Account! With fluffy mini pancakes, waffles that come in a healthy alternative, chicken and bacon with hot dogs, this store is for the ultimate lunch break. Brittany’s Place has well-tailored food options and they all come with a vegetable and fruit salad. It’s amazing food that is worth the price, the delivery is not so fast but arrives just in time for lunch. They also have excellent customer service and the food tastes great!

NO. 4: PECKISH
Peckish is a specifically great place to order when you want a really good panini or pasta delivered fast and still tasting great. The bread is freshly made and ingredients are sourced locally and you can taste the love in every bite (if that doesn’t sound too cheesy). Their customer service has never disappointed and the prices are very affordable, their delivery locations are a bit limited which is the only downside. Nevertheless, their tuna melt panini with salad is a personal favourite and their Instagram account: @peckish.ng will prove how much their customers love their food.
NO. 5: MILK AND HONEY GOURMET SERVICES
What makes milk and honey so unusual is the meal plan subscription they have in place. With the meal subscription plan you have a tab that comes in several grades, place an order straight from their website and your breakfast and lunch for the week will be planned with their excellent customer service representative. They also have the option of the one-time order so all aspects are covered with this brand. These meal tabs have various options and cater to those who also need healthy options and it’s a thumbs up for them for excellent delivery. Follow them on Instagram: @milkandhoneyng
