My wife and I come here for coffee and muffins several times a week. Samuel is a wonderful guy, and we always leave with a smile on our face and great...

Excellent coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Mostly a grab and go feel because of Covid but there is indoor seating.

I love coming here. The coffee is amazing and the service is even better. I can depend on this cafe to consistently make good coffee and food. I really like the smoked salmon bagel and mocha expresso.

This is my go-to neighborhood coffee cafe. If you haven't yet tried Ethiopian coffee - give Hype Cafe a try. You will be hooked.

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!
