You can sit on a traditional bedwian corner or ordinary chairs, I ordered drinks only and there were good, Internet speed is very good too. The stuff is very friendly.

On top of a shop house overlooking the main square, access is by a rather rickety and totally filthy unlit concrete staircase. The whole place is rather grubby, and we certainly would not eat food here. Tea and juice were fine, and an apple hookah was very pleasant.

you can choose either to set on a normal table and chairs or you can set on the floor on a traditional bedwian corner - the shisha is great and also the view - it is on the roof of a small bulding so you are a little away from the noise of the streets if any

drink tea, smoke hookah, try some delicious fuul medammes or shakshouka and look out over the shali. if siwa has a town square, it's more or less below sharazad, so you can also watch the city go by- weddings, donkey carts, 4wd SUVs on their way to safari. siwa is a special place!

You need to check the crepe and chocolate brownies, they are heavenly out of this world, and to watch the sunset over shali old town while the crepe is melting in your mouth, best experience you'll ever have.
