They serve delicious Ethiopian coffee for a reasonable price. They also sell other beverages such as kombucha and tea. The owner was very friendly and personable. There’s no WiFi available. There were many cozy tables and spots.

Tried a Chi tea espresso and it was delicious. I highly recommend that. I also got a chocolate croissant. It was dense, dry and not worth it. Also, they push cash only so be prepared.

The Kefa Cafe is sort of like comfort food in a coffee joint. Not fancy, but fine beverages, great servers and relaxing escape.

This is a great place to just sit and sip tea or espresso, meet a client for a meeting, or just enjoy a salad and sandwich. The atmosphere is inviting, the owner(s) which are 2 Sisters, greet their patrons warmly and you can feel the love as your order is prepared, but not rushed. The atmosphere is very European with an old-fashioned quaint flare, small and intimate but still offers some privacy if you need it to just sit and read a book. I highly recommend visiting this establishment. You will return again and again. Please go!

Kefa is a Silver Spring institution. If you're visiting our community, walk a block beyond the chains, meet some locals, get treated like a long lost friend -- and enjoy great coffee, a sandwich or some gelato. Grab a vegan muffin - they're great.

It's nothing fancy, that's part of its charm. And bonus -- just down and across the Street is Silver Spring Books -- another SS institution. Stop in, pick up that used book you've been meaning to read (for a song) and take on up to Kefa and settle in for a nice read!
