Craving desserts in Adds Ababa? Visit Sweet Dreams, our newest cafe. We offer a variety of gelato, cakes, pastries, and more. To make it a little easier for you, here are top 9 most popular desserts:
#1 Italian Gelato
Our homemade, Italian Gelato, was the inspiration for starting Sweet Dreams. Every day we offer 12 tasty flavors. Our gelato is smooth, creamy, and perfectly sweet. The Salted Carmel topped with chocolate chips, chocolate cookies, and drizzled in caramel is the most popular. But we also provide dairy-free (fasting) options as well.
#2 New York Style Cheesecake
Cheesecake is one of the desserts in Addis Ababa most missing. It’s hard to find almost anywhere. We offer an original New York style creamy, cheesecake and a fresh raspberry flavor too.
Milkshakes are often under-appreciated in Ethiopia. They haven’t gone mainstream compared to ice cream and gelato. But we are proud to offer a Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana, and Strawberry milkshake to help you remember how perfect this on-the-go drink is whenever you’re in the Bole/ Edna mall area.
#4 Decadent Chocolate Cake
The chocolate cake is one of the best desserts in Addis Ababa for any chocolate lover. It’s perfectly moist and smothered in chocolate icing. It’s the perfect balance of satisfying your cravings without leaving you with a sugar high.
#4 Smoothies & Cold Drinks
If you are looking for something a little healthier, try one of our smoothies. We use fresh fruit, honey, coconut milk, and serve them nice and cold! Or you can try one of our cold drinks like strawberry lemonade, ice tea, or our favorite, “Iced Coffee with Caramel.”
#6 Wood Cake
Bear with us on this one… the name might not sound appealing. But dip your fork through layers of rolled cake, chocolate, and whipped icing, and you’ll find yourself forgiving us for this misleading name. It’s the perfect treat if you don’t want something too overindulgent, but still, want a bite of chocolate.
#7 Apple Pie Tart
This dessert is probably most appealing to all the Americans living in Addis Ababa. It brings the traditional American pie into a cute little tart. As the saying goes, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” And thankfully for us, it doesn’t say we can’t eat our apples in pie form.
#8 Cake, Cake, Cake….
Sweet Dreams logo actually says, “Ice cream, Cake, and Coffee.” That’s where our true specialties lie. Every day we offer an assortment of cakes. Most of them are meant to order whole– which means it’s a great gift at any party or event. We also make custom wedding cakes made fresh by our international pastry chef.
#9 European Style Bread
Okay, we know. Bread isn’t actually a dessert. But, at Sweet Dreams, we offer something for everyone. This includes:
- Gluten-Free Teff Bread
- German Brown Bread
- French Baguettes
- Organic Sourdough
- Italian Focaccia
Get it to go or enjoy a slice with our strong Ethiopian coffee, and you have a tasty snack and a dose of whole-grains.
