Cafe Ethiopia Restaurant Review

: Café Ethiopia doesn't promise much with its modest coffee shop décor, but it's a welcome dining option in the Mission. Eighteen dishes run the gamut from the hearty kitfo (a buttery Ethiopian steak tartare) to the delicate alecha ater (a rich purée of yellow split peas). Diners use swatches of injera to scoop up the flavorful food.
