The best place to have lunch downtown. Everything is fresh and healthy. Service also at good standard. Shrimp curry is my favorite dish. It is a mixture between French, Lebanese and Sierra Leone food. Enjoy

Pretty good local eatery. The food was good, and there was a good selection. The wait staff did a good job as well.

Yes. this is the best restaurant we have eaten in Freetown. there is not much else to focus on. just the food. it makes the difference. from most of the choices you can't go wrong. that's an ambitious statement even for the upmarket and flashy restaurants of Freetown. Crown Bakery does the job right, every time. what more to ask... More

This is a nice little gem in Freetown. The food is delicious. The menu is diverse with pizza, pasta, burgers, salads, sandwiches, etc. You can order food to eat in the nice and clean restaurant, get food to-go, or order from a delivery service.

This was a nice lunch spot in Freetown. Reasonably quick. It is popular with expats, and crowded, though there was no wait for a table. The local African cuisine was delicious, though the juices were bottled rather than fresh.

They have a wide variety for a quick bite or a meeting with food. Fried chicken and baked goods and a lot more. Hope you enjoy.

On a recent trip to SIerra Leone I was happy to see that Crown was still open - I remember it from trips to SL many, many years ago. It is the place to go to if you want a brewed cup of coffee, or something to eat that is not traditional Sierra Leonean rice and sauce. I have enjoyed... More

This is a well run and properly organised coffee, restaurant and meeting point in a very central downtown location. Very popular with business people, Government and finance advisors, consultants and others.

Very friendly efficient staff. Food as excellent as at the other branch but it seemed to me, a more limited menu. Their signature fried chicken was excellent, a huge piece, fresh, tasty and cheap.
