Ethiopian breakfast

While I was visiting my cousin and her family in Santa Rosa, we never did eat at Abyssinia, the city's one Ethiopian restaurant, and if we had, it probably wouldn't have been for a weekend breakfast. On a walkby, I saw that on Saturday and Sunday mornings, Abyssinia serves dishes including kinche, cracked wheat cooked with netir kibe; kita firfir, pieces of wheat bread with netir kibe and berbere; genfilefel, pieces of injera simmered with yebeg key we't; and ehilkibe, a porridge of "powder oats," niter kibe, and honey.

I made a mental note to track down an Ethiopian breakfast after I returned to New York -- with more than a dozen restaurants to choose from, how hard could it be? -- but a perusal of MenuPages reveals that none opens earlier than 11:00, or for anything other than lunch or dinner. Does anyone know where an Ethiopian breakfast can be found anywhere in the Tristate area?
