Sheba Cafe

6251 Bissonnet Houston, TX 77081 | Outer Loop - SW | 713-272-7770

Location Description:

Sheba Cafe is a wonderful addition to the city's small but vibrant Ethiopian dining scene, and it fits right into the colorful hodgepodge of Gulfton (where you can even purchase Ethiopian groceries and other sundries from Maru, just a few blocks away). In the mornings, it's quiet on this stretch of Bissonnet, perfect for enjoying a leisurely Ethiopian breakfast over a very strong cup of coffee. Order the kinche for an African twist on oatmeal that even kids will love. Evenings are ideally suited to long dinners with friends over communal dishes of yedoro wat and giant plates of tabor.
