The food is here is the best Ethiopian I’ve ever had. Really tasty meat, flavorful vegetable feast, and fluffy light injera bread. The food portions are very large for the price. We will definitely be back!

So this was my first time having Ethiopian food. Good Lord this was absolutely DELICIOUS!! So many different flavors and textures. I've been wanting to try this place out for a while and finally had the opportunity to do so. I can absolutely say I will be back sooner than later. Mom and pop feel in a quaint dining room setting. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

So amazing!! Vegetarian feast option with injera was delicious! Abugida feast with tender beef and just beautiful spices. Lentil yemisir sambusa - crispy exterior, tender filling. Fantastic customer service, friendly atmosphere, very reasonable prices and definitely a place we plan to return! ❤️

Excellent food and the nicest people you will find. We had the feast with beef. And, coffee afterwards. Not fancy, delicious food.

I love this restaurant. The ladies I've dealt with have always been warm and friendly and patient with questions. They make you feel like family. The food is amazing, with many delicious vegan options. I have tried other Ethiopian restaurants but Abugida is the best by a mile. Always look forward to going back.

Abugida Cafe is one my favorite go to restaurants in Charlotte! My husband and I order the same thing every time and they even remember our orders, it’s all love here! I’m not Ethiopian but somehow getting lunch/dinner at Abugida always feels like eating “at home” - the warm family vibe and the absolutely delicious food come together perfectly every time. Whether the restaurant is slow and quiet or is swamped it’s a great experience for some amazing comfort food, I love it here and the staff are always so sweet and welcoming.

Consistently amazing. Great vegetarian options, so friendly, so delicious, such an amazing restaurant in the heart of Charlotte. I love coming here and sharing food with friends, it is truly one of the best places Charlotte has to offer!!! Each and every food option is so rich and incredible. You cannot go wrong!!!


This tiny, unpretentious restaurant has excellent food and friendly service. I was by myself and had a few appetizers for lunch. Try the Ethiopian cheese with collard greens. Amazing.

Simply delicious food. Injera is fantastic, flavors are deep and we'll developed. Can't wait to come back!

Food tasted oh so good.. truly a “Mom & Pop” Resturant. I recommend this restaurant it’s clean and personal plus the staff was patient and good with explaining their Menu….
