It's a local hang out, particularly for the local retired gentlemen and there's pretty much a constant flow of smoke. But, if you don't mind that (or can stand it for 20-30 minutes) it's a really interesting place to people watch. The coffee is good and... More

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.
