Jebena Cafe

$$$$

Set in a brightly decorated space with lime-colored walls, Jebena Cafe in Lake City is one of those solid places where you can expect the food to be great and the service even better—plus, three people can eat dinner for around $20 total. The menu includes dishes like beef tibs and stewed lentils on spongy injera, but you should order the Jebena combo. It comes on a very large plate and has a little bit of everything, including a few types of meats, a couple of vegetable sides, and homemade ayib cheese.

Our favorite dish, however, is the green lamb, tender with plenty of spices, herbs, and chopped collards, which pairs really well with their curried cabbage. And if you need some Ethiopian pantry staples, like berbere and other spices, Jebena has you covered.
