Lucy’s Ethiopian Cafe – Try the peanut tea!

You can find some great burgers, pizzas, and lobster rolls around Boston, but sometimes you just crave something a little more exciting without hurting your wallet. Well, Lucy’s Ethiopian Cafe’s got your back! Tiny, unassuming, and tucked away between a couple chain restaurants, Lucy’s is easy to miss but definitely well-worth the search.

A must-try for a breezy spring morning is one of Lucy’s traditional Ethiopian teas and coffees, paired with one of their affordable and delicious breakfast plates. A bonus for all breakfast lovers (or late-risers nursing hangovers) – you can get their breakfast options all-day long!

To be honest, though, my go-to at Lucy’s is their lunch menu, as it’s extremely vegetarian and vegan friendly. They have wonderful combination plates that are a mix-and-match of multiple different dishes, all served with Injera, a tangy Ethiopian bread. I would definitely suggest ordering extra Injera though – along with downing it on its own, you’re going to be using it as a tasty utensil to transport the delicious entrees from plate to mouth!
