They have good coffee and pastries, I visited 3 branches, the coffee was great and the same in them all. I recommend if you are close by to give it a visit, take a cappuccino/espresso for 15mins and continue your day.

Reminiscent of Cairo's cosmopolitan bygone days. Still offering wonderful pastries. Still popular with both local and foreign residents in the area but also frequented from far and wide.

The interior of this place is really run down. Seating area is small, tables are small and too close to one another. However, their pastries are very good and prices are reasonable.

This is traditional coffee shop right along Zamelek's busiest street and local, local, local. Be prepared to speak Arabic or simply point. Plenty of foreigners visit so you may get lucky and find an English speaker.
