We have enjoyed the Blue Nile Cafe for years and always take friends or meet friends here. Recently we arrived to find it closed, so sad. But.......Juba has now taken its place. We are anxious to try this and see if we can love our ethiopian corner again.

Our friends from San Francisco (who now live in AZ) made sure we ate at this wonderful Ethiopian place while in town visiting! Don't be put off by the ugly strip mall it resides in.
