Peace Café has a serene atmosphere with an African and American styled décor, a flat screen TV, air conditioning, and a seating capacity for about 15 people. They also have a chalkboard wall for special announcements and the menu. Because the waitress took about 20 minutes before inquiring about our needs and did not take notes when she came to take our orders, we were concerned that our orders would have been mistaken. Also, she didn’t seem so friendly; however, she got the orders correct to our relief.
I ordered the Peace Café Tropical Salad ($8) with chicken (extra $2), and it tasted good. It had a little touch of hot spice and was a combination of fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and black olives. The salad dressing was made of mustard and other spices that I couldn’t figure out, but it tasted delicious all the same. It took about 20-25 minutes to get the food to us.
The Peace Café Special smoothie ($4) which is a mixture of pineapple, mango and ginger was tasty, and the ginger flavor was very light. The price of smoothies ranged from $4-5 and had interesting names such as “Che che polay” (which means “gossip” in Liberian English), a mixture of pineapple and ginger juice; “Strawbango” which is a mixture of strawberry, banana, and plum; “BBC” which is a mixture of banana, berries and cream. It took about 7 minutes to get it to me.
The price for all Liberian dishes is $10 with $1 extra for brown rice. Also, olive oil is used to prepare them - I am not so sure the Liberian dish will taste “Liberian”. Considering the price of ingredients (cassava leaf, potato greens, rice, etc.) on the Liberian market, prices at Peace Café are high and food portions are small.
