Very interesting, the unique small businesses, you will find along 17th Avenue SE.  The Jubba Nile cafe and food store is one such intriguing location at 4908 17 Avenue SE.   Try the Somalian coffee with it’s hint of ginger and cinnamon, so refreshing I didn’t even need milk and sugar as usual.  Samosa’s are made with either Halal chicken or beef  and served with three types of sauces.  A great find was the stacked tea pot- a tea pot at the top of a holder, below cups, then a small shelf with saucers all in a handy small holding “condo”.     Somalian women are known for their beauty (think Iman) but also for their perfume, many make their own unique blend with jasmine, rose, or orange blossom water.  At the Nile you will find pretty containers to store your own precious sweet smelling blend.
