What do I love more than books, colours, nature and cute little things? Hanging out with a Gem at a book-filled cafe nestled in a garden and colorful Maitama amusement park.
Sunset Cube Album features sunset glow pictures from my hang out with Fatima at The Cube, Maitama Abuja. I met Fatima, my Caramel at ALitFest19 back in June. She attended AkeFest19 and we had a fabuously, fun time and shoot at the Art Gallery. It was immense fun to hang out with her while in Abuja doing my Call to Bar Screening.
Caramel and I(Glow baby) had honest and intimate conversations on our envisioned future, AkeFest19, The Cube, NYSC, current reads, queerness and the pictures we took haha)
The Cube has a gorgeous garden outside with flowers, young trees, shrubs, ferns, potted succulents, wooden benches, Ankara aesthetics and more.
Inside is cozy with wide range of books you can read. You can read, write and code here all afternoon! Their menu has hot & cold beverages (N1,200 upwards no VAT) and snacks.
We ordered pineapple juice (N1,500 each)

The cute sugar pot
Books can break sugar pots y’all! I wanted to take pictures of books Fatima brought with her. The books fell on their backs and pushed the sugar pot off table. It broke and I felt so terrible. I kept saying, ‘I’m sorry but too poor to buy a new one’.🥺 The lady attending to us swept up the mess. I didn’t have to pay for it. I felt so terrible because it was so cute. Fatima made a video, it’s on my Instagram. Please don’t break anything when you visit.
Thanks Gem for looking through our Caramel x Glow Baby Sunset Cube Album and review of The Cube Café.
