Art Café

Art Café is a restaurant serving Somali and Mediterranean cuisine in Hargeisa. The restaurant is unique in its layout for having open outdoor space for dining, which is rare among restaurants in Hargeisa. Art Café runs a breakfast service, a dinner service, and pre-ordered lunches. Additionally, the restaurant serves coffee, tea, and snacks outside of service hours. Recently, Art Café decided to begin hosting a regular lunch service and built a second kitchen in anticipation of this service.

Art Café was approved for an investment from the Nordic Horn of Africa Opportunities Fund to build and furnish two additional dining halls. The halls will be used to host events such as board meetings and weddings, as well as accommodate additional guests for dinner and the upcoming lunch services.
