Reviews for MLK Cafe

Pretty good hot chicken for and a more manageable wait time than some of the other places LA has to offer. Came here on a Friday night for a late dinner. The line wrapped around around the building and I ended up waiting about an hour in line. After I placed my order I ended up waiting another 45 minutes for my food to come out. The inside was pretty packed but people were shuffling in and out frequently. I was able to find a spot fairly fast and I'd say between placing your full review
MLK Cafe is the best place in Oakland to get traditional Ethiopian breakfast all for under $10 too! Kitcha fit fit with clarified butter and meselah foul are my go to's -- super filling and the foul reminds me of my childhood. I've heard great things about the pizza and their tibs are delicious, but it's honestly the breakfast and my fondness of the staff and community that keeps me loyal. Once I picked up food after going to urgent care and it was on the house! full review

Very fun and delicious food! The service was excellent, and the light and cheery atmosphere made the morning feel especially lovely. My friends and I greatly loved to spend free time in your cafeteria because it was affordable and nice. Even the staff were very accommodating and pleasant that impressed me. Great work!
