Enjoy Healthy, Flavorful, Authentic Ethiopian Food

Letena is an Ethiopian fast casual Restaurant that offers authentic, premium quality dishes, with special attention to vegetarians, vegans, health conscious, and adventurous customers. Located in the heart of Columbia Heights, DC, Letena serves food faster than dine-in restaurants, without compromising the quality and authenticity.

To that end, we offer injera in the traditional manner as well as in burrito style wraps, bread or rice accompanying entrees for diners throughout the metropolitan Washington area. Join us today and try any of our range of specialties in our MENU.
