Very busy but fun ! Get a ticket for what you want and go to the ladies at the coffee counter. You can also buy the coffee fun experience

This place is a real throwback - the setting is like a 1920s saloon, standing room only, and the smell of roasting coffee permeates the air - and the whole vicinity. The coffee is tremendous - the doughnut was nice too - and it really immerses you in Ethiopian coffee drinking culture. Well worth a visit.

Wonderful old coffee bar that probably hasn't changed since it was established 50+ years ago. Loved by locals and tourists alike for it's Italian style coffee bar ambience. And you can pick up a few bags of local coffee to take home as presents too.

If you are looking for the best authentic Ethiopian Coffee, go visit this place. You will get a strong and distinct taste of Ethiopian Coffee. You can also buy bags of beans for your self or give it to your friends and family as a Gift. They have many branches in Addis, but I highly recommend visitors to their oldest... More

While in Addis you got to visit Tomoca at least twice daily for your dose of Ethiopia coffee. You can also buy packed coffee or coffee beans at a fair price.

Good place for a quick cup - very nice coffee. Don't expect anything more than coffee, for that you need to be on the other side. It wakes you up for sure!! But good coffee and nice people.

Stopped by for a quick coffee with a friend. This is a no frills coffee bar with great variety of Ethiopian coffee. Great location on a busy street in the centre of town
