This cozy cafe and restaurant is located in the heart of Culver City's revitalized downtown area. While the restaurant offers nourishing Ethiopian cuisine, the cafe hosts some of the more adventurous live jazz combos in town. The menu blends East African specialties like doro wat and injera bread with such down-home Southern staples as collard greens, candied yams, corn bread, and red beans & rice. The bar serves beer and wine, with half-price specials during happy hour on Mondays through Fridays from 3 to 7 p.m. The walls are lined with fiery, colorful artwork, providing a suitably festive backdrop to the jazz musicians who gather on the club's small stage. By day, it's an airy cafe, but at night the lights are turned down low for a more intimate and romantic concert experience. Hip-hop and poetry events are also frequently scheduled at this homey venue.
