    Street vendors

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In some corners in old town, specially near the markets, you can find street vendors that prepare fried things to take away. I had these kind of triangular samosas, filled with vegetables, that were delicious. About half dollar each,

    Canal Cafe

    Canal Cafe (no sign outside) is located in the main street and is a good place to sit for a while and enjoy a fruit shake or a pastry. Don't expect a western cafeteria, it is just a small room offering coffee, juices and some pastry, but is a good option for breakfast or so.

    Breakfast at Belayneh Hotel

    by SirRichard Written Nov 11, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Belayneh hote is a middle range "modern" hotel jsut outside the city walls, near the bus station. I didn't stay there, but went one morning to have breakfast at the roof terrace. It is a wonderful place to watch the city life in the morning, with all those persons bustling around in the market near the Gates and the blue taxis running up and down.
    Breakfast with coffee, toast and eggs, 10Birr (1 euro)

    Favorite Dish: 150 Birr the single room

    Ali Bal Cafe

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a good traditional cafe in the main square (Feres Magala) of the old town. Inside it's huge and interesting but the best seats are at the terrace from where you can see the bustling daily life. I liked to have breakfast here, a wonderful machiatto coffee and a "fatira", a freid cake with egg inside.

    Fatira

    Fatiya is a fried tortilla filled with egg and a certain sweet flavour. A good place to taste it is the Ali Bey Cafe in the main square, but you can also find it at street vendors.
