  • Not only yummy Ethiopian food (plus luncheonette sandwiches, etc) but also some of the best coffee around (try the skinny white Micha). Also super friendly and FAST (unlike other restaurants)
  • Embrace the Ethiopian specialties like dorowat (peppery stewed chicken), zilzil tibs (beef strips sauted with traditional herbs), and colorful vegetarian stews (get the four-dish combo).
  • Best Coffee in town!!! (this time of year best Iced Coffee in town ;)
  • A good vegetarian combo platter.
  • Can't go wrong with the doro wat and veggie sampler. Enough for two really hungry fat people or three regular hungry regular people.
  • The coffee is HOT! Order iced on any day warmer than 60* or it'll be awhile before it's drinkable.
  • Espresso was spot on! Seriously good coffee.
  • Best coffee in town, and breakfast too!
  • best iced coffee around.
  • The vegetarian combination is great, very delicious and filling. Service was great and friendly staff. The seating and place itself needs some more Ethiopian touch.
  • Cafe Mocha is famous!
  • Nice food, but kinda unorthodox. My friend really liked it but I didn't quite enjoy neither the lamb nor the vegan plate. But I'm sure it's great for vegetarians. Mango smoothie is da bomb though!
  • veggie combo platter is the way to go! very filling and a good price
  • The food is great!
  • Great good nice ambiance
  • A bit pricey for lunch (lunch and dinner menu are the same) but definitely worth it for an every-once-in-awhile treat!
  • They suck at seating people
  • Obsessed with their anti stress and mango smoothies.
  • Vegetarian combo is delicious an they always have wonderful service!!
  • Love the anti-stress smoothie... Delicious!
