Tsion Cafe is an Ethiopian/Israeli restaurant, and it might just be the friendliest place on this list. It’s in the bottom of a small residential building, and the front of the space sort of looks like a family dental practice. There are a few couches and a table with some magazines, and beyond that you’ll find some tables and a little bar. The walls are also covered in art, and there’s a great backyard for date night. As for food, they do things like shakshuka, chicken stew, and a great Ethiopian vegetarian combo that comes with a side of injera (the bread you’ll use as a utensil). Although if none of these things appeal to you, you can always just get a burger or a smoked salmon salad. Feel free to stop by in your gym clothes on a weeknight for an affordable, comforting plate of food.
