This is a great place for a business meeting or lunch with friends. Pizza is good, pastries are tasty. I'm not a fan of the burgers.

Pizza is a staple in Addis and Aba Guben has one of the best in town. This is definitely one of our go-to places for lunch and dinner (they are closed on Sunday).

I had a small snack with a friend at this cafe/Restaurant recently and found it so nice. The cake was so nice and the atmosphere at the restaurant was a relaxing one.

Best thing around the corner, for a quick lunch, for the teff and oats bread, for a pizza, for a good coffee.

Great pizzas, good pastas, good bakery. It's possible to buy fresh pasta and good bread there, including gluten-free bread. It's not open on Sundays.

The pizza menu is good and the pastries and cakes are also good. It's a nice casual outdoor dining experience and good for kids.
