What a great neighborhood! Across the street is Birch&Barley/ChurchKey, considered by RateBeer.org participants the best watering hole in the District. And here, you can get your African beer with good West African food!
I'm a former 6+ year resident of Ghana. I was first introduced to Ghana Cafe about a decade ago, in its former location. Then Ghana Cafe moved, I moved to Asia, and just got a chance to enjoy this place in its current location.
Our group had fufu and stew with goat meat, and plantain & beans, plus beer (Star & Gulder from Ghana, Castle dark from South Africa and Tusker from Kenya). On a Thursday evening the place was fairly full, service was fine (including the owner putting some favorites into the sound system for me). We spent longer here than planned, lingering over the good food, drink, and talk (including catching up with the owner), before proceeding across the street for a night-cap.
Altogether, I had high expectations, which were very nicely exceeded.
BTW, we were only drinking beer and water. I can't remember if the bar had additional choices. The place is open almost to midnight on weekdays.
