September 21, 2017 begins a new season of 3rd Thursday at the Museum. This series is part coffeehouse, part artist and performing venue, part history lesson and community forum. This concept offers an entertaining and thought-provoking evening to community members. Each session will be planned by a different local host who will coordinate an hour-and-half show that is interactive, fun and interesting.
An intermission will feature quality small batch artisan coffee and delicious desserts.
On Thursday, September 21st, join us to learn about the rich traditions of Ethiopian culture from the proprietors of Cafe Lalibela Ethiopian Cuisine. Free samples of Ethiopian food included!
Family-owned and operated for over two decades, Café Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant has introduced many a newcomer to an authentic, aromatic and artful Ethiopian dining experience.
Situated in the heart of Tempe, Café Lalibela prides themselves on offering fresh, satisfying flavors (including many vegetarian and gluten-free varieties) in both a restaurant and retail setting.
They are known for our Ethiopian coffee as much as their cuisine, so come by for a traditional, fresh-roasted cup to accompany your meal or get you going on a slow day. If you’re seeking a romantic evening out, a healthy and flavorful alternative to typical to-go options or just a warm, inviting atmosphere in which to enjoy a cup of Joe, try Café Lalibela for a taste of authentic Ethiopia.
Café Lalibela has also honored many requests and partnered with Whole Foods in an effort to offer our premium plates and products to a broader audience, where you can now find many of Café Lalibela’s flavors stocked on store shelves. From red lentils and yellow split peas to collard greens, cabbage, potatoes and carrots, there’s an abundance of ethnic, vegetarian and gluten-free flavors you can now take straight off the shelves of your local Whole Foods grocer.
