“Everything is overpriced like crazy !!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

I don't know why do they charge these high prices for items that you can find everywhere !!
Imported items are sold with very very high prices, even Egyptian goods are more expensive than any other place in Cairo.
Sandwiches and other beverages are not always fresh

“On the run”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

A quick service for your quick need...hot & cold drinks , sandwich , snacks & all kind of sweets...a wide variety of cigarets , cigars & all other staff you may need in harry , exactely like 7/11 but much better & more classy...the only negative point is the prices , about 15% higher than other places.

“Quick & Easy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Been there today…
Great for quick lunch breaks between 2 meetings
Healthy (relatively) food...
you can make you own sandwich there (Fresh ingredients)
Also great to grab a coffee and a cigarette while waiting for someone at almost any busy spot in Cairo (lots of branches)
Staff is usually friendly, ( I forgot stuff there : cigarettes and even my wallet once) , they looked for me to give them back.
Bathrooms are generally clean “correct”

But most of all on the run is great because you can take a break there from the long long hours in Traffic Jams….

Best,

“Nice Place for quick coffee and snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

I always go there for coffee/tea morning on my way to work. The branches of “on the run “ are located in gas stations so I find nice snacks and sweets easily any time .
