Café Colucci

The long-running Ethiopian restaurant relocated to a beautiful new space in North Oakland, just a short drive away. Cafe Colucci’s newest iteration continues to rely on the same menu of crispy, beef-stuffed sambusas, garlicky buticha, and satisfying meat and vegetarian samplers with heaps of deeply spiced mitten shiro and gomen. The exciting change is that this fun, casual all-day spot now lives in a high-ceilinged space that’s over twice the size of the original. You can watch workers make spongy injera at the bar counter. There’s a full-on spice shop in front stocked with berbere, hop leaves, and alicha kimem from Cafe Colucci’s Brundo Spice Company. And the gorgeous outdoor patio is ideal for drinking ginger-lemon kombuchas or anything from their growing menu of house-made drinks.
