Snelling Cafe is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very cold dark place didn't look too clean the cook was also the waiter and he was rude not friendly. There was a glass of water that's spelled at our table I cleaned it up and placed the wet napkins in the glass I was scolded for that like A5 year old child asking why would I do that in a very rude tone. That was also the moment where he put my food at the table I told him in that moment I would like to go boxes I'm ready to leave I waited 20 minutes for three sandwiches the bread was so hard on two of them and very little filling on the inside I couldn't believe it one was overly spicy and the other was steak that was very hard to chew I will never ever go back there again my daughter said the hamburger was okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great surprise! The site lists it as Mexican/Southwestern, but it turns out to be East African/Ethiopian--Very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food was pretty good, definitely fun and ethnic (Eritrean/Ethiopian style). Latte was good, 'houle' appetizer was AMAZING, injera bread was pretty good, and the lamb tibsi was pretty good, altough I wish it had more ethnic spices in it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This eatery is a place in search of an identity. The menu is all over the place, probably trying to attract diverse tastes. The specialities seem to be more north African, stews with injera, for example. There are beers and wines, but the wines are out on display, standing upright on top of a shelf -- in the heat. The proprietor is very nice, and very helpful. The place is pretty run down, but could become an amazing local hangout for the right crowd.
