This place is quite close to our office so we go quite often because it is convinience and because the place is a cosy backyard but the food is average, the good is you can find a menu international + traditional ethiopian food.
I have tried vegetarian Quiche and veggi burger and they are o´right.

A cafe/restaurant a mite off the beaten track - but definitely worth visiting should you happen to be in Yeka Subcity area. Inside as well as outside tables, so for outside get sth warmer to throw on in the evening or try their local gin at just 10 birr to keep warm - or if you're lucky, there's fire to sit around and chatter away munching on delicious local food or whatever you feel like having - the menu is quite extensive, catering almost to any palate. Plus, the place is frequented by ferenji - that's also kind of a hallmark. On arrival, you might even be greeted by their charming black and white pooch, which'll try to caress you to death;) Grilled food I tried was next to divine, those were Yega tibs - one of the cheapest variation of tibs - the smell only will amke your mouth water. All kinds of spriss - mixes - are available - even including gin and tea, which I was accidentally served and which's also become one of my favourites! You can be even more daring))

This is one of those off-the-beaten-track restaurants that wows me everytime I go there, irrespective of the time of day or day of the week. The menu has something for every taste bud including those who want to try something new, the food is great and given the menu repertoire, it is value for money. Add to that the convivial ambience and even if you arrive on your own, you will not be alone for long. In town on business? Then make sure to go there and meet Tony Hickey and his band of merry men!

Depending on the day and the whim if owner Tony, you could be dancing with traditional singers, lighting the Meskel bonfire or just cosying up to the outdoor fire. Road Runner is where locals and expatriates meet - everyone is welcome. Pizzas are good, especially the vegetarian ones. Also worth trying is the fried fish and chicken kiev. The food is more good than average but no category provided for this.

Good service, good pizza (the pasta didn't get as favourable reviews from our group) and a fire to keep you warm if you got cold in the brisk evening air. My group enjoyed this restaurant and returned again and again.
