The African Starbucks

Lovely, quaint coffee shop that makes you think you are in Starbucks somewhere else in the world and not in Addis :-). Excellent coffee and cakes.

This cafe is designed like Starbucks. They have many branches in Addis Ababa. Nice coffee, good sweets and so much more. Don't expect the exact Starbucks but very good to have a breakfast and stay with friends. Also to see ethiopian chicks.

It seems as though there is a Kaldi's in every corner of Addis. It is a good place for quick coffee. I was not impressed by there food or desserts.

its ok.. The service isn't the best but what's annoying is that they run out off "English cakes" as they call it...everyday... overall it's an ok place to grab a coffee.

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
