Neighborhood: Downtown
Overview

An artist and writer meeting place tucked away in a small alley. Always buzzing. The spotless tables inside the luxurious but stuffy restaurant are not the draw. Instead, head for the shabbier tables in the enclosed split-level garden beneath a thin canopy. Here loquacious locals polish off beers and carry on late into the night. Watch your food—a sculpted waterfall in one corner gives frisky cats a way in. The restaurant offers a selection of overpriced Egyptian and International cuisine. No need to eat in the restaurant; however, as affordable and delicious mezzes can be ordered from the garden with chilled beer and sheesha. Steaming hot fuul beans and swollen termis (lupine seeds) come free in the cafe.
