March Marketing Meeting at Shagga Coffee & Restaurant

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

MMM! For this month's marketing meeting, we didn't stay as local as we usually do. We had plans to visit a few specialty stores in Hyattsville, MD to hunt for new staging supplies (multiple listings are in the works) and decided to just pick a place nearby. 

Shagga is an Ethiopian restaurant serving up the most flavorful and colorful dishes. It's rather unassuming from the outside, sitting right on busy Baltimore Avenue, but the interior is cozy with just a few tables, colorful artwork and mouthwatering aromas. As soon as you step inside, your tastebuds will dance with anticipation! 

The service was warm, friendly, and fast, and the food was just absolutely delicious. I tried a combo of vegetarian dishes (salad, cabbage, split lentils, and split peas) and Cherie had a taste of the chicken that had simmered in onion, garlic, ginger, and herbed butter sauce. Both came with a generous portion of traditional Ethiopian bread. 

We highly recommend you stop at Shagga Coffee & Restaurant when you find yourself in Hyattsville. We'll definitely be back.

Hello Andrea - it's been some time since I have eaten Ethiopian food but I have some very good memories from my days in the Washington DC area.  Restaurants like Shagga in Hyattsville Maryland seem like they would make a tasty addition to any neighborhood.

I had Ethiopian cuisine once many years ago, Michael Jacobs,  but must go more often now that I've experienced it again. So flavorful and - super important for me - vegetarian/vegan friendly.
