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).

Kefa Cafe is an enchanting neighborhood coffee and sandwich shop in downtown Silver Soring, MD. Owned by two sisters, the cafe is consistently voted best coffee in our community. They will also have a kiosk in the brand new library. We love Kefa Cafe.

I like this cafe. The aromas and the ambiance remind me of a little place in France. The owners are gracious and welcoming. The coffee is very good and the pastries are fresh and tasty.
