Cairo best Places to have Breakfast or Lunch


Baladina in Arkan Mall 6th of October or in The Platform Maadi 

 Typical Egyptian food Other than located on the Nile River banks and the fact that you can take a Nile Taxi for a fun ride in the Nile, enjoy some feteer meshaltet with cream & honey, their falafel is also so crispy & fresh.

Nile 49 

 A floating boat on the Kit-Kat side of the Nile with an amazing Nile view, and a cozy feeling as if at home, serving different food every day, once Egyptian, another Scandinavian or French, though pricey & their service is slow but they make a very generous Egyptian breakfast; falafel, fetir with homey, white cheese, fried, omelet or scrambled eggs, with your choice of foul, their foul with samna baladi is on fire, and the one with sosage  is delicious too. You can enjoy your meal indoors, or outdoors on the roof, or in the garden, don’t forget to end with tea with fresh mint ;).

Lucille’s Maadi (Street 9 branch)

 This place is always crowded, but totally worth the wait. Their portions are generous, and their service is really good and quick. Go for a maadi scramble with hash brown and dark bread, if not already full, you have to try their pancakes, they are highly recommended.

Casper & Gambini’s in Cairo Festival City

 Your menu should be as follows: Egg Benedict with smoked salmon & fresh Carrot Juice, or Kiwi-apple, followed by sticky toffee pudding.

Tempo in Allegria 

 Finally there is a reason to drive all the way to Cairo Alexandria Desert Road other than living there, or traveling to Sahel & Alexandria. This place is really cool, enjoy the greenery of the golf course while enjoying their specialty “Allegria’s burger”.

Left bank Zamalek

 A bit overrated and overpriced, but the place is just awesome, and has a nice view. You can go for Left Bank’s big breakfast, and please don’t leave without having a to-die-for vanilla mille-feuille.

Brioche Doree 

 Pick any branch their fruit tarts are on fire, as well as their Almond croissant. If you are more into salad, take the Salade Mediterraneenne.

Paul in New Cairo or Mall of Arabia

 Try their Continental breakfast, this is where French pastry is at its best, try their gateaux, eclairs or fruit tarts, I promise you won’t regret it.

Munchies in Zamalek


Their crepes are so fulfilling, however their chocolate waffles are mouth-watering, pick your combination White Toblerone with strawberries, Milka with Ferrero Rocher, the sky is the limit.

Pizza Mia Zamalek

 Who said that Pizza cannot be eaten over breakfast? This place is a hidden gem, owned by an Italian guy, bringing in his local favor in a tiny place in Zamalek’s Ismail Mohamed Street.

Munch & Bagels

 Ask them to make your bagel half salmon with capers and the other half tuna with honey mustard sauce. They would tell you we don’t make half & half bagels, just tell them that you ate it several times there and they will make it for you :) – located at 2 Dr. Taha Hussein in Zamalek.

Blackstone in Maadi or Zamalek

What else can you ask you for other than their made to perfection Egg Benedict???
