Located in the heart of downtown Kitchener, the East African Cafe offers excellent and authentic East African cuisine at reasonable prices.
Central to our dishes is injera, a yeast-risen flatbread on which various minced vegetables and savory stews are served. Patrons use the injera, rather than utensils, to pick up morsels of food, usually from a large platter shared with family or friends.
For lunch and dinner, we offer many vegetarian dishes, such as misir, made from split red beans or lentils, and ater alicha, made from yellow peas. However, we also serve non-vegetarian dishes such as tibs alcha, made from lamb, and kitfo, made from lean beef. For breakfast, try our nutritious ful medames, made from fava beans. Our dishes ranges from mild to spicy, are nut-free, and can be prepared without gluten at your request.
With your meal, you can enjoy regular coffee or espresso, or a glass of wine or beer (including the famous Kenyan "Tusker" beer).
Your hosts at the East African Cafe are gracious and friendly, and the ambience is relaxed and comfortable. Come by and let us share with you the good food of East Africa!
