“Superb ice cream”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Had heard about Twenkies and had to find it on our latest visit. Situated across the road from the Steinberger Nile Hotel, and down the road by the side of the Passport Office. It is located at the end if this road, is closed on Fridays, and believe lunchtimes, as we waited until 2pm for the door to open.

Such a wonderful range if ice creams, and so creamy, using buffalo milk. My favourite was gingerbread, but, I need to try all the flavours before making a final decision.

A wonderful addition to Luxor eateries.

A subnote, at the moment it's location is not well known, and caleche drivers thought we wanted to go to Twinkeys, a local cake and biscuit shop. So know your directions, or you could go on a magical mystery tour!

“Haerd about this establishment, so just 'had' to check it out”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Heard about this establishment, so just 'had' to visit.
Felt envious of guests of the Nile Palace since it is near the end of the road opposite.
They do small and large scoops so we had 3 small ones each as tasters
Peanut (2 scoops), Orange, Vanilla, Pina Colada and another that she can't remember

“Handmade Ice Cream”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

This is a welcome newcomer to Luxor their handmade on the premises Ice Cream and Sorbets are fantastic as is the Iced Coffee and Waffles didn't have any room for a milkshake so will have to go back! The place is spotlessly clean its licensed by the Egyptian tourist ministry and is owned by a German couple they are closed from 8pm and Fridays.
I wish them well in these quiet times in Luxor.
