Ethiopia’s remote topography protects its culture and cuisine from outside influences, keeping it rich in tradition and flavor. Unique spices, grains, and vegetables thrive in Ethiopia’s highlands, with plentiful rainfalls and varying climates. Special cooking methods and healthy combinations of ingredients produce an array of vegetarian, meat, and grain dishes.

Finfiné is located near the University of California at Berkeley, between Parker and Blake Streets, in “The Village” courtyard. A popular Berkeley thoroughfare, it’s a wonderful place to get a dose of the city's famed counterculture, shops and street vendors.

“…At Finfiné, the cooks take a fresher approach, swaddling the natural flavors of their ingredients with transparent layers of spice … You won’t find Finfiné’s weekend specials anywhere else in the Bay Area …”

Our core belief has always been, using organically grown local produce enhances the true taste of each of the dishes we serve in our restaurant.

We will continue to evaluate the local farmers in order to select the ones who apply the strictest guidelines to produce such high quality produce.

It is a great privilege to be part of this great movement to be able to re-introduce locally grown organic produce and their respective farmers/farms to our customers.
