“A good choice for coffee and/or ice cream”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

There are several Kaldi's Coffee places in Addis Ababa. The coffee is tasty, as is the ice cream. Interestingly, I understand that Starbuck's is suing Kaldi's for imitating its logo, but the Ethiopians have not at this time allowed any Starbucks in the country. Be aware that there is a nominal charge for the disposable cups in which the coffee and the ice cream are dispensed.

“Poor coffee, great atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I go to Kaldi's for the atmosphere. The coffee/macchiatos are average at best. Good (not Great) ice cream is availble, at a high price. The burgers are disgusting, but the breakfast is not too bad.

“Copy of Starbucks!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Good coffee but unfortunately the service can be very disappointing especially the branch at Adams Arcade. My friends had to wait for hours to get our food and that wasn't just once.
