Kefa is a Silver Spring institution. If you're visiting our community, walk a block beyond the chains, meet some locals, get treated like a long lost friend -- and enjoy great coffee, a sandwich or some gelato. Grab a vegan muffin - they're great.

It's nothing fancy, that's part of its charm. And bonus -- just down and across the Street is Silver Spring Books -- another SS institution. Stop in, pick up that used book you've been meaning to read (for a song) and take on up to Kefa and settle in for a nice read!

I first visited Kefa Cafe during the Taste the World in Fenton Village event. It was so good, I came back the next day! They also have vegan treats (which is rare to find in this area).

...attractive because not at all flashy... ..actually kinda old fashion, but definitely with a millennial slant, crisp and clean, and very quiet... very very nice service: the warmth and affability of the lady at the counter and the fact she spoke a foreign language added remarkably to the charm of the place.. ..very good tuna sandwich, though not memorable (needed a bit more bite in my opinion), terrific freshly squeezed orange juice and probably the best espresso I have drunk in this area.. Starbucks, please just step aside, you have suddenly been put to shame!

After a devestating fire, Kefa Cafe had to close down -- tragic for them, and a real loss for our community. It is the kind of local place where you go to hang out. Really special. So great to see them reopen their doors. Wonderful coffee, desserts and sandwiches. Our kids used to go there in the afternoon after school to do their homework!

All locals know the sisters who own/run Kefa. Many folks go there to meet-up, chat, and be part of the wonderful Silver Spring fabric. This is an institution. They now have another site at the SS Library. Everyone knows Kefa.
