About us

Lemat Ethiopian Restaurant and Café is named after a handwoven Ethiopian basket for injera, a large sourdough flatbread (heaven for gluten free dieters). Our vegetable, vegan and meat dishes are served in the form of wot, a thick stew, or tibs, a sautee of a grilled meat along with vegetables, served over injera.

To commemorate that the origin of coffee is firmly rooted  to  Ethiopia’s  history,  Lemat  also  serves  patrons  with  traditional Ethiopian  coffee ceremony. The displays in the restaurant are additional attraction on their own and tell the story of Ethiopia which many historians believe is the cradle of mankind.
