They perform the coffee ceremony regularly at our events, and they serve Bunna for free to their guests. Bunna Cafe serve vegan Ethiopian food: hearty, wholesome, nutritious, and packed with flavor. Full of vitamins, healthy fats, veggie proteins, and fiber, their food adds creative twists to vegan recipes that have been refined and cultivated over many centuries.
