The Young Flower of Seattle

In the Amharic language, Adey Abeba means “Young Flower.” In 2005, Adey Abeba was the “young flower” of Seattle’s Ethiopian Restaurants—opening for business in an inviting and beautifully remodeled Victorian.

Though the Young Flower of Seattle is now over a decade old, Adey Abeba feels as fresh as the day it opened. This family-owned business stands as unmistakenly one of the warmest and most atmospheric Ethiopian dining experiences in the city.
