I can not go to the Khan without eating here; it is my favorite cafe in Cairo. Best tamaya (using coriander and sesame) and fuul I have had since living here. The waiters are so friendly and the prices unbeatable. I have only eaten at the cafe but there are two other restaurants in the establishment, with one featuring a more upscale dining menu and atmosphere.

We usually go there for the excellent food and music. It is Egypt as we like it, bot nessessarily how Mahfouz know it. Because it was being renovated we went to Fishawi, which made us appreciate this coffee shop even more..,, next time for sure

This is an okay place to visit in the Khan al Khalili. The food is not spectacular, but it is generally safe and has the cleanest bathrooms in the suq.
