Nice experience – I chose to go to Blue Nile cafe after reading several reviews on other sites. Most prefered this to lalibela cafe. They have a table and chair seeting area as well as a more traditional area with stools. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The server was very helpful with a newcommer and helped me make selections. The regular water she brought us was infused with strawberry and cucumber which was tasty.
If you are a rookie to ethiopian, utensils are optional. Who doesn't like eating with their hands in public? The bread used to scoop the food is definately unique. The menu has several vegan options as well as plenty of meats to choose from. The lentils are excellent. I am a meat lover but would not have a problem going vegan at this place.
I thought the service was excellent, even got me a to go cup for the Chai tea I had not finished. Reasonably priced as well. I plan on going back as well as trying Lalibela Cafe to compare. I enjoy supporting locally owned businesses and this is one that I will go to again.
Over rated.. – Tried blue nile once, will not return. I do, however, recommend Cafe Lalibela or Tina's Ethiopian Cafe for great service, great food!
