This is a small local coffee shop, with espresso cheaper than starbucks and actually much tastier. The only bad thing is that they make you feel bad if you pay with a credit card which is bull.

Everywhere I go I visit coffeehouses. I never would have found this one except a local friend turned me on to it, saying it had the best coffee in town. Alas, no wireless internet, which is rather uncoffeehouse like. But I was there to sit and write. I met Al, the artist who did most of the work that covered... More

Delicious Ethipoian coffee and Italian gelato in a small and welcoming cafe. Easily the most comfortable spot in the neighborhood to hang out for an hour or two.

I confess, I do not drink coffee, but Kefa offers chai latte and several types of tea. A friend brought me here for lunch, and he assures me the coffee is wonderful — he's a regular. I had the Spring Classic sandwich, a tasty, fresh collection including cucumber, artichoke heart and sprouts. The chai latte was a little spicier than... More

Every time I walk in to this cozy little cafe in the heart of downtown Silver Spring, I feel like I'm with family. The actual space is on the small side although I've never had a problem finding a table. The service is incredibably warm and personal and the food is so fresh! The quiche is delicious as is the...

the best coffee in silver spring -- and owned and run by two delightful ethiopian sisters, who watched both of my children grow up. They have wonderful sweets and savory lunches, too. it's a real neighborhood hang-out, and a great place to read the sunday paper.

I dined at Kefa Café for lunch and therefore missed the coffee and pastries. The menu was a bit limited - if there were Ethiopian specialties, I missed them. When told they were out of my first choice, I decided on the quiche. It was fine - served with bread, butter and orange slices, but nothing special. With a bottled... More

I was in Silver Spring for a conference and can't wake up without my 2 double espressos. This place serves the best espresso ever! The lady who runs it is very coffee savvy. The ambiance is comfortable. Food is wholesome and locally grown (not the coffee of course), pastries to die for. Friendly service, connected to the local community. I... More
