Neighborhood: Islamic Cairo

Set in the heart of Cairo's most famous bazaar, El Fishawy is a venerable tea house that has been managed by the same family since the 18th Century. Established in 1773, this place stays open 24 hours a day and occupies a narrow alley off El-Hussein Square. Inside the cafe, cracked mirrors, smoky ceilings, old wooden furniture and a stuffed crocodile lend charm. But the real draw is the crowd, which is a diverse mix of tourists, chic sheikhs, sheesha chain-smokers and local waiters. Mint tea, Turkish coffee and a variety of other hot and cold drinks are available.
