5 out of 5 stars Traditional Injera bread made with Teff, not white flour. Kaffa's Injera has a mild sourdough tang, and a rich taste. The plate of vegetables and legumes was great, lightly cooked, which preserved the flavors. A little spicy, and not oily. The Sambusa pastry with potato filling was not as interesting as the plate, and more oily. The Telba flax smoothie was very good, mildly sweet, flavorful. jordanrothstein

4.5 out of 5 stars Incredibly nice and accommodating woman owner. Their teff injera is the best I've had. Their spicy lentils and mixed vegetables are excellent, and their kale is very good. The split peas are plain, but what can one say that's bad about split peas? Nothing. Delicious, healthy, hearty food. Also, it travels well if you take food to go. I haven't tried the side dish yet but plan to on my next visit. LHLisavegan

4.5 out of 5 stars Nice to have an all vegan Ethiopian place to dine. It is small and homey with friendly service. Limited seating. The food was delicious. Best injera I've ever had. The sambusa was sooo good. bunnygirl

4 out of 5 stars All vegan Ethiopian, using 100% teff for the injera. Small menu offering some typical choices familiar to those who have eaten at Cafe Colucci, Addis, Fin Fine, the old Blue Nile, etc. Nothing fancy as to physical aspect of restaurant. Appears clean, food was fresh and satisfying. I had the combo with yellow lentil, potato carrot, greens, something else. Friendly owner, started @ farmers mkt. Vegan Living
