Family-owned and operated for nearly two decades, Café Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant has introduced many a newcomer to an authentic, aromatic and artful Ethiopian dining experience. Situated in the heart of Tempe, we pride ourselves on offering fresh, satisfying flavors (including many vegetarian and gluten-free varieties) in both a restaurant and retail setting.


We’re known for our Ethiopian coffee as much as our cuisine, so come by for a traditional, fresh-roasted cup to accompany your meal or get you going on a slow day. If you’re seeking a romantic evening out, a healthy and flavorful alternative to typical to-go options or just a warm, inviting atmosphere in which to enjoy a cup of Joe, try Café Lalibela for a taste of authentic Ethiopia.


We’ve also honored many requests and partnered with Whole Foods, where you can now find many of Café Lalibela’s flavors stocked on store shelves. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Ethiopian food or simply eager to finally try some, come see what’s cooking at Café Lalibela.
