Food Monday – Freshly baked Danish & Croissants at XO Bakery in Lekki #


Hi Guys,

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

We have been busy making preparations for our road trip expansion as mentioned in previous posts, So please bear with us as we push out a few late posts.

This week we are back with our Food Monday review and it is about a new bakery #Newspotalert located inside BLD by Play. I know right 3 brands in one building BLD is becoming more and more popular for other things apart from their buffet 🙂

The hype about the New spot at BLD started on Instagram and since the bakery is owned by a Lagos based chef, we had to stop by to try out what the new bakery has to offer.

See pictures from what we had at the New XO Bakery at BLD By Play

Croissant and Danish


As one of the newest bakery’s around XO has a very simple menu which offers croissant, chocolate croissant, danish, donuts and cinnamon roll. On the first day we only had 4 options however they where glad to take the order for the next day.

To our surprise they actually open as early as 8am, this is how a proper bakery should operate as early as possible for customers to grab their pastry heading to work.

Anyways the pastries were on display that early and the nicely packaged croissant and danish was looking freshly and Yummy.

It did not take us time before we dug in and enjoyed every bit to the last crumb. The croissant was perfect probably the biggest in terms of size in Lagos. And yes the danish is definitely a good choice, it was so good.

Advise is to consume as soon as possible well except the donuts but we tried everything they had except the chocolate croissant. We also heard they offer more options during the weekends with their Saturday special.

Their pastries are nice and not exactly affordable.

What we had & Where

Croissant – N850

    • Hi,

      Yes there is a seating area but they don’t serve coffee at XO. I think you can get at BLD it is in the same place.
