Most people agree the coffee is good. They also serve good cream puffs and ice cream. Cleanliness is a worry. Good ambience. Prices are very affordable.

Had lunch and coffee there. Food and coffee was OK, reasonably priced. Place is very popular amongst locals. We were there on a Sunday and seemed to be a popular place for locals for a mid-day snack or drink. Had a burger and fries which was OK but not same preparation and taste as one would find in traditional burger... More

A new brand, with about 20 spots in the city. Coffee, ice cream, pastries, juices, everything to make you happy. Clean, english speaking staff, a good place. We went to the one at Arat Kilo, conveniently located near the university.

These Starbucks-imitating cafés are dotted around the city. They have quite good burgers and sandwiches, and the price is low. They have also good juices - I can particularly recommend the mango juice. It is a good choice if you prefer to take a pause from the traditional food.

They served me dry cake that was hard as a rock. Told the waiter about it and he took it back. I got the bill and they charged me for it. I didn't want to waste my time and argue about a piece of cake that I didn't eat but I think that says a lot about this place.

This was the first cafe we visited in Addis ababa, an outlet near Harmony Hotel. First impression-'Starbucks???' mainly because of the green round logo. It was busy and clearly short-handed. We sat at the outdoor, terrace area facing the busy road. Ordered the coffee and breakfast items, but really, they are just normal..yes, the coffee was strong but nothing more.... More
