The Turkish coffee is too thick. I tried the dessert Om Ali in this cafe and it wasn't good either. The mini burgers is just a joke. They cut a piece of bread into smaller pieces 3 cm in diameter and the whole burger is 2 cm tall. It has some coleslaw and a tiny piece of meat. Better order... More

Awesome place to hang out if you're a large group. Wide variety of sandwiches, salads, main courses. Very clean. Healthy variety on the menu. Extra friendly and welcoming staff. Great shisha!

The menu was a selection of standard US-diner food with some local flare. I ordered a selection that included a few items... some of the items were not available and substituted (staff didn't ask, the plate just arrived as is). The substitutes were good enough, so I did not complain. The food was good but nothing to write home about.

We tried Carlos Cafe during our last stay in Alexandria. The seating arrangements are good and the food was really delicious.

A below average cafe with regular food and drinks. you can barely take your breath from the whirlwind spreading around you from Shisha and people smoking. I thinks its overrated based on nothing.

Carlos Cafe has many branches. I visited the one on the Corniche -Cleopatra Area. It has a great sea view , great decorations, good coffeee, and sweets but the only problem is the smoking and the shisha who is allowed inside. Not reccommended if you are accompanied by children. Smoky clause applies to all Carlos Caffees..not only to one branch.

I enjoy Carlos when I'm there....service is always good. Usually you don't have to wait for a seat. This is the Carlos located outside City Center mall. The Carlos across the street is usually busier and you have to wait for a table when there are more crowds. I really enjoy their chicken alfredo although sometimes it is different with... More
