It's amazing how peaceful this place is, considering how close it is to the market. Run by Ethiopian Christians, ut seems, it offers excellent coffee as well as hot chocolate made from solid chocolate and hot milk. You can also buy their coffee to take home with you!

Coffee is wonderful.
The chocolate milk, is very impressive.

We ordered a dark chocolate milk, it has real dark chocolate at bottom and serves with hot milk on top. The dark chocolate melted into the milk .... wonderful experience.

We also ordered a Macchiato, very nice coffee smell and taste, little bitter but sweet.

With a Lime & Almond cake. What a perfect breakfast!

Proper coffee house, freshly ground beans in front of you and served in a lovely glass mug. More bitter then the coffee you may be used to but better for it. My wife had a chai tea which was also delicious.

Easiest way to find is to walk to the top of Rue de Lombard, it will be on your left

Really great coffee, different to typical European coffee and a lot stronger, their hot chocolate is pretty good too
