Yes, I'm usually down for da tibbs, but some days I just need one of their delightful hibiscus iced teas or a fresh mango smoothie! If it's Ethiopian it's here!

We had the combo platter with two chicken, one beef items, with collards and lentils. It was simply delicious. The service was rather slow but friendly.
