Hype Cafe is one of my favorite pandemic takeout joints. The food is amazing, the portions are generous, and the prices are low. The restaurant has good social distancing practices.

I've ordered lunch here a few times. The Ethiopian food (all vegetarian) is very good. The spicy lentils and chickpeas have nice heat, and it's served with plenty of injera. Seems like a nice place to grab a coffee and hang out for a while.

I'll definitely be back. Ethiopian food and coffee are wonderful things, and it's a gift to have both so close, of such quality, and still in a quiet place. See you soon, Hype.

What's the Hype?

You walk in and notice lots of light, tables and counter space. “Why Hype?” you ask. Proprietor Samuel Mengista says, “It’s the name we came up with to express the effect of the coffee.” Mengista and his fiancée Hanna Tesfamicael opened Hype Café to provide a theme which meets the needs of our customers. Our goal is to become known as the best café on the Corner of Capitol Corner!
