Coffee is everything in Ethiopia. Not only does it drive the economy, but it drives everyday life. Ethiopians drink coffee multiple times a day, be it as an espresso, cortado, or through the traditional coffee ceremony -- the intricate, intimate process of making coffee from raw bean to brew while bringing people together in conversation and celebration as the process develops. We perform the coffee ceremony regularly at our events, and we serve Bunna for free to our guests.
We serve vegan Ethiopian food: hearty, wholesome, nutritious, and packed with flavor. Full of vitamins, healthy fats, veggie proteins, and fiber, our food adds creative twists to vegan recipes that have been refined and cultivated over many centuries.
We serve traditional Ethiopian alcohol -- including T'ej, a sweet, rich, fermented golden honey wine. We also create our own specialty cocktails. Check out our menu to see our current cocktail list.
Habesha have a tradition of sharing. Meals are shared, coffee is shared, homes are shared. It is a source of pride and honor to be able to give what you have to those that do not. Bunna Cafe supports people and organizations that engage in the art of sharing for the betterment of those in need -- be it in Ethiopia or elsewhere. Our support is through promotion -- staging fundraising events, expanding social media exposure, and building partnerships for long term development.
Since 2011, Bunna Cafe has been curating Ethiopian-inspired food and music events around NYC. In February 2014 we opened up our first brick-and-mortar restaurant on the heels of an inspirational Indiegogo campaign. Today we are the prime destination for Ethiopian cuisine in North Brooklyn and beyond. With a regularly-packed dining room and all the support we could ever desire, we are poised to do the next big thing. Stay tuned, get on our mailing list, and check out our events page for what's to come.
Everything = Eshi.
