I have had coffee in several of the KALDI'S coffee shops in Addis. They have excellent coffees, their teams are always friendly and custmer oriented, but seating is mostly on hard chair and not really cozy and comfortable.

Remembering the first coffee shop opened years back it is a pleasant surprise to see the chain reaching now about 30 shops in Addis. Friendly environment pleasant atmosphere with nice cakes.

Not a brand new place but busy as they served coffes, drinks, ice creams and pastries. Their expresso coffee is good, quite strong for the real coffee lovers! Good service, smiling, fast and efficient.

Coffee is the thing in Ethiopia, but the western cafes cafe culture is still to be desired. The products that were served with cafeterias are quite limited and they tend to be sweet. I would have liked a little something salty to eat, but it is not this the coffee shop were found.

Coffee there is good, especially machiato. Easy to find one of branches. Sweets selection (tried baclava - big, sweet, nutty - very filling). Sandwiches were already gone at 19:00. Not a Tomoca, but easy, quality place.

If you want a nice reliable coffee chain in Addis, then go to Kaldi's. The food is passable, but the coffee is good.

A chain of coffee bars around Addis. The coffee is nice and not too expensive. The service was ok not too fast (guess the number of clients and location also make a difference). I had a tuna sandwich which was ok but the fries on the side were awful. I don't think this is a food place though so no... More

You can find in many quarter in Addis. It is chain of coffee shop. The taste of the coffee is very nice but the staffs should be trained more. Especially machiato is wonderful. It is one of the taste that you have to taste before you leave Ethiopia.

I went there and ordered a cup of coffee for takeout. While I was waiting for my coffee, I revisited my receipt and noticed that the server has intentionally put two cups of coffee and made me pay for double. I was very unhappy About it and spoke to the server and the cashier. Then instead of refunding the money,... More
