Cafe & Mini Mart

Ethiopian Chicken House
University City

Middle Eastern/Ethio Fusion


Alif Brew & Mini Mart opened in 2020, offering up classic Ethiopian flavors with their gluten-free injera platters. With two meat options to choose from, the rest of the menu is completely vegan. If you want something a little more portable, opt for an injera wrap, filled with a protein of choice and lettuce and salad. Sambusas are freshly fried and there are salads and hummus in the display cases. Make a left upon entering and you will be in our Mini Market, stocked with imported goodies and everyday household essentials. 


Salam Cafe is the second restaurant opening in 2021 which serves Middle Eastern and Ethiopian cuisine. With the addition of lamb chops, chicken kebab, and salmon, you now have the option of rice or injera for your platter. Salam Cafe has the classic proteins (Beef Tibs or Spicy Shredded Chicken) and the classic vegan options are on rotation daily. Need to take a break after your feast? Take a browse in the Mini Mart along the back walls. Salam Cafe also offers catering and is available as a rental venue on Sundays. 


Doro Bet is the third adventure in the Ali Family opening in September of 2022. Have you ever tried gluten-free fried chicken? Ours is dipped in your choice of buttermilk batter, Awaze for the spicy lovers or Alicha for a mild flavor, and we use teff flour to make it extra crispy. We added the Shawarma Spit for a delicious chicken sandwich or salad. If you want to try a more traditional meal, give one of our Doro options a try. And of course, with all our restaurants, we have Vegan options as well. 



We hope that you will come by and try all three of our locations as they are each uniquely their own. We love bringing our favorite Ethiopian meals to you and we hope you will continue enjoying them.
