Was surprised with the variety of food and we ate a couple of days at this and never came out empty stomach or unsatisfied. The staff is helpful too. This place also serves great shisha and sitting out in the open in the February weather was amazing.

The place at Abul Feda street is a little worn down, but the food and service were very good. The ground floor seemed small and filled with smoke, but it was empty upstairs. We ordered Just Omlette and Lebanese labneh plate, and everything was to our liking. Not something outstanding but very very decent.

Quality about average and as you would expect from a Café. Sisha available. Nice outside sitting close to Nile which gives a spacious feeling.

I was introduced to that place by my American friend who was living in Zamalek back then; she said they have the best Shisha ever but since I am not into shisha I can't second that! The Cafe offers a wide variety of Shisha flavors, coffee, and smoothies. Its open more or less 24/7 and is usually quite packed. it... More

I don't know how many times I've been here, but it's a definitely a favorite. Situated on the Nile facing the Western areas of Cairo like Dokki and Mohandisen, Pottery Cafe is a fun restaurant and shisha cafe with Wifi. I enjoy their sandwich dishes and have tried a few others. The price is great and the shisha is wonderful.... More
