We sat at the outdoor, terrace area facing the busy road. Ordered the coffee and breakfast items, but... read more

Kaldi's coffee shops are a great place to enjoy good Ethiopian coffee while watching the world go by. Cakes and snacks good.

Kaldi's has got to be one of the best places to have coffee and snacks. Their wide variety of cakes and finger foods are to die for.

Only been once but thought I was in Starbucks where I never go to in Australia. The coffee was ok service good but really if in ethiopia please go to the small local coffee shops where you see them roasting the coffee beans and preparing it over small open fire fantastic experience.

I generally enjoy going to a Kaldi's for the the pleasant atmosphere. It's clean, usually decorated in an interesting way, and sometimes has some nice music going in the background.
