This is a bit of a biased review because i've been coming here for years, so it feels like a home to me. Most of the staff haven't changed, and they always greet you with a smile, and while the prices are high, so is everything else in Egypt these days. You can get decent cold brew coffee or capuccinos... More

I think this place has the best coffee in town. The place is rather mediocre but this does not let me down. I would go and keep going.

Visiting cafe Greco is a ritual when in Cairo, provides the much needed java fix and is seriously the best coffee in town.

Ten years ago Café Greco was great - a genuine, friendly and relaxing place for a quiet coffee to start the weekend. These days it's a haunt of narcissistic little-rich-boy bikers showing off their latest (loudest) Harleys and Ducatis and trying to impress each other and irritating everyone else. The café hasn't changed - great food, staff and coffee, but... More

I'm a coffee addict. And this is the place I get my fix. Best coffee in town. Simply unbeatable. Nothing compares to their coffee.

best coffee in town - hands down! I easily because a daily regular, visiting once or twice a day. staff is extremely friendly and remember you and the coffee you like; so after 2 visits only, you don't even need to tell them your order

This place is a maadi staple with the best coffee and biscotti in town. A perfect unpretentious place to meet for work or pleasure. I lost an obviously valuable gold bracelet and I left my number on the off chance I may have dropped it there. Sure enough, they called and the night shift cleaner had found it. Lovely staff,...

If you want to drink coffee with rich and strong flavor you should try Greco, my comment is they need to renovate the place as it becomes very old

The place offers mediocre coffee if you're a coffee junkie! They provide subpar customer service with an attitude! Give me a break! We know that Greco is like "the place" in Maadi but honestly who gives a damn! If people can take such an attitude and keep going back, good for them!
