We origianlly tried this restaraunt as a payment towards flowers purchased by the owner's son..and now we're hooked! We've never had Ethiopian food...and now I don't know why we waited so long! If you like sourdough taste..you'll love the flatbread that you eat your entree with. Most of the flavors are spicy..but oh so good..and of course they can tame the spiciness down when requested. Everything is prepared while you wait..fresh and honest. Cooked using EVOO and every bite is worth savouring..We love you Cafe Selam!

One of my very favorite places to eat! Excellent Ethiopian/Eritrean cooking in an easily overlooked location. There are several other Ethiopian dining options nearby, but this is my favorite of anywhere I've been. The Ethiopian beer is terrific as well as the honey wine. I highly recommend the dish of fava beans with feta, tomatoes, eggs and more (called "foul" or "ful") served with toasted french bread. It's technically from the breakfast menu, but you can often get them to serve it to you other times of the day as long as they have the ingredients on hand. Cheap prices for such generous portions, too!
