I went here several times. Great coffee shop! Tried the pancakes and sambosas and they were both delicious. Great place for breakfast or simply for a coffee and afternoon snack.

I visited Kaldi's coffee just outside the ILRI campus in Addis Ababa. Lovely lovely coffee and if you are in search of good junk food while in AA, you should try it out. They also serve generous portions. ( I failed to finish my food on two ocassions). Overall it is a lovely coffee place! :)

The coffee is good, so is the food, the prices are also very fair. It just looks and feels like any starbucks that you will find in the U.S.

I ate here a few times, and also had their macchiato's - which are good. A must try is their fresh fruit juices. The food is reasonably priced - good sandwiches and hamburgers. Pop in one of them, to regain your energy from the hustling and bustling city, that is Addis.

If hygiene is a priority.....Kaldis is the best bet you can have in Addis and the fact that its a chain of 22 coffee shops around the city...you will find one in every suburb... Though inspired by Starbucks, the quality of the food and the coffee still has a long way to go before it reaches the Starbucks standard... Always... More

If you are looking for a little familiarity of home in the U.S. then this is a good place to start. Just as others have said it is similar to Starbucks. It was a nice change of pace to sit down and enjoy a yummy caramel macchiato and also have some familiar menu options. We stopped here for a quick... More

Kaldi's was founded by a very sharp, enterprising young Ethiopian woman who attempted to open the first actual Starbucks in Ethiopia but when she was in the US, her application to do so was rejected. So, she returned home to Ethiopia and entirely copied the brand right down to the signage, logo, seating, and just about everything else. This story... More
