Fodor's Expert Review El Fishawy

Islamic Cairo North: al-Husayn Mosque to Bab al-Futuh Cafés Fodor's Choice

This famous café is right in the heart of the medieval marketplace; this is the great café in Cairo, open around the clock and beloved by tourists and locals alike. The chairs spill out into the alley, and the walls are hung with thick, old-style mirrors decorated with elaborate woodwork. Tea with fresh mint is the house specialty.
