We were in town for Labor Day weekend. My husband and I came here for a light bite and just to visit maybe get some work done. The atmosphere was great and the service, awesome! We didn't know that they also serve a limited Ethiopian food menu! Next time we are in town I will come back for food 😊

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!
