A good variety of cakes and savoury items. Elegant decor. Service perhaps not the best and can do a bit with friendliness. Reservation is highly recommended in my view since it is very popular. Surprisingly good value for money for Sheraton.

I spent my afternoons at the Sheraton for their meals and excellent buffets. It's an oasis of peace in the rather chaotic city.

This is part of the Sheraton Lobby and one of the busiest places in Addis. The place is jam packed throughout the day. They serve some excellent coffee, cocktails and tea...

This is my favorite place to have coffee with the best sweeties in town. The environment is relaxing but sometimes very difficult to find a seat.
