This is a super cute hole in the wall local biz. The staff is bar none the sweetest most welcoming group in the springs. They totally accommodated for my 3 yr old and my 1 yr old. The food was awesome and adventurous. The coffee was amazing. Highly recommend a visit and we will be back for sure.

“Wow what a dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

We went to Uchennas restaurants with friends after researching the restaurants in Colorado Springs.
We could not have had a more wonderfull and complete dining experience. From the moment you walk in and get the magnificent aromas, to the lovely welcoming decor and waiters.
The food was fabulous and our waiter guided us through the menu. The Ethiopian bread was like nothing we have ever eaten.
Maya the owner was such a lovely and humble person who gives a lot of love through her food. Just meeting and talking with her was inspiring.
This is a must do food experience you will carry forward for a long time

Fantastic food. A must try if you've never had Ethiopian, or if you've eaten it your whole life. Take the whole family and make an experience of it, you won't regret it.

“Amazing and truly authentic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This restaurant is a local gem. Chef Maya is the sweetest person you will meet. The food is absolutely phenomenal!! From the samples of specialty drinks, to the main course, through dessert and coffee...everything is delicious! Makes you feel like you are in Africa for a few hours. The staff are kind and caring. My husband and I plan to make this a regular part of our eating out routine. If you are anywhere near CO Springs, you need to try this dining experience out. They serve gluten-free and vegan meals as well for those seeking that. AND, they have a bakery a few doors down as well! All around a great place to eat for people of ALL ages!!
