About Tsion Cafe

Tsion Cafe interiorLong-time residents of Harlem, we are committed to the growth of a healthy Harlem community. We opened Tsion Cafe and Bakery to provide our neighbors with healthy, delicious cuisine, fusing Ethiopian and Mediterranean flavors, along with a selection of international wine and beers, fair trade Ethiopian coffees and specialty teas, served with delicious home-baked pastries.

“First and foremost, we wanted to create a space in the neighborhood that provides a healthy and delicious alternative to Sugar Hill residents.”

Du Bois, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Ruby Dee, Ralph Ellison and George Gershwin, among others, this vibrant community has long served as a hub for the arts and entertainment.

We are committed to honoring that heritage by providing a space for regular arts events, including live music, poetry nights, film screenings, a writers series – and more. Check our calendar or give us a call to find out what’s going on. Or just drop by to enjoy a drink on our beautiful, fern-filled deck.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
