Okay, so we’re bending the rules with this Ethiopian spot in the Waverly neighborhood that does have some meat options on the menu, but it also features a robust vegan menu, thanks to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church’s fasting seasons that restrict meat. The cafe includes a small market, with freshly made injera, spices, kitchen supplies, and dry goods lining the shelves. The veggie combo platter is a great deal at $13 for the full plate, with red lentils, split peas, collard greens, salad, and stuffed jalapeno served over injera bread. The café also offers fair trade, organic Ethiopian coffee.
