In saying its a Franchise coffee Im not saying it in a bad way but that is what it is, gloria Jeans starbucks all similar. The coffee and tea are good especially if you just need a hit of coffee and they serve a small range of food which is also good if your out and about and just want... More

There is really not much to say, just all around a pleasant experience with good coffe and other stuff. Probably one of the best and cosiest cafés you're going to get in Addis unless you go to some expensive hotels.

The Starbucks of Ethiopia. Very much a male domain but women were also there. Good service and coffee.

The fruit juices are fresh and one of the best I have tasted. Vegetarian options in sandwiches and snacks - and the joints are all over the city.

You can get great coffee almost anywhere in Ethiopia, But, if you want something more like a latte or mocha that you'd get at Starbucks, this is the place. Very cheap for what you get.

We cannot go to Kaldi's to eat without having a backup choice on the menu. They are always out of everything! (Especially bad at location near immigration on Churchill Ave) The food is adequate at best. Coffee is good, but not the best in Addis. Kids love the ice cream. Chocolate Millefoglie keeps me coming back. Best thing there.

Average service. Very basic menu. Some are better than others in terms of cleanliness. But well priced and worth a visit for a quick lunch/snack.

A great cup of Kaldi's special ginger tea is to die for. Add a little Ethiopia honey and you will always be back for another cup!
