Best sweets in Egypt

Nostalgic for these delicious sweets. The ice cream has made our international top 5! Bakery items are delicious. No wonder we saw so many pink boxes at the airport when flying back home :)

Sweets & pastries are delicious, croissants are really delicious and fresh. I buy them for next day breakfast and still tastes good. Ice cream is also awesome. Try this place you will like it.

This tiny place is authentic and has a selection of the most yummy sweets. They will not make your hips shrink and eat too many at your peril. Pace yourself ( I speak from experience) and take a box home. Don't be put off by the queue. It's worth it.

Its a bit like that at this the number one pastry shop in downtown . They are so busy all the time you will feel lucky to be served . The cakes are well worth the wait and shove too. Try the coconut cakes .... actually everything they make is good . There is some Italian influence in the cakes... More

Some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted. We paid more and was walking away. The young man at the counter who spoke no English called us back and told my Arabic speaking friend that we had overpaid. We just ate more ice cream! Wish the store were larger.

I love this place , although the sweets is too tasty , it's too heavy. The place itself need be redecorated and they need to take care more about hygiene

Returned several times after stumbling past this little gem in downtown Cairo. Freshly made mille fueille, baklawa, kunalfa, pastries and cakes that will set any sweet tooth salivating for a fraction of the cost of Patissere Valerie! This place is popular with locals and you will have to be quite assertive to obtain service at busy times but it is... More
