Time-honed, traditional recipes and quirky yet calming interiors make Little Addis Cafe a standout in the cool parts of Braamfontein Werf.
Little Addis Cafe is a popular Ethiopian restaurant in Johannesburg. After all, Ethiopian cuisine continues to be the hottest ticket in town. The eatery serves up most of the classics with fermented and communal dining options, although there are single platters for those much-needed solo date outings. They’re situated in the hip-and-happening Braamfontein precinct, just a stone’s throw away from their previous venue at 44 Stanley.
Little Addis Cafe: Authentic Ethiopian cuisine in Johannesburg
Go for the earthy pulses, rich stews and bubbly injera cooked daily by the chef’s team who puts in the hours on the pans. The restaurant is a jolt of colour with checkered floors, bold red walls, and interior plants for some natural greenery.
For those not familiar with Ethiopian cuisine, the cuisine is centred around injera, a bouncy sourdough flatbread made from ground teff seed that’s fermented until spongy and comes with an unmistakable tang. Injera acts as both carb and cutlery, used to scoop and swipe every last bite. A range of meat, vegetarian and vegan dishes are on the menu. Don’t leave without trying a strong and freshly brewed pot of Ethiopian coffee.
