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

Found this on our last day and got up extra early to visit before we had to get our flight home- my only regret is not buying more delicious cookies and baklava- i should have spent my last LE in here!

Very well packaged, very clean and the prices seem ok and absolutely delicious.... More

If u want to try the real fresh egyptian desert: alabd is the answer. Try their Basbosa and Biscuts. The other kinds like Conafa i didnt like. They r one of the best places in cairo for making Basbosa with nuts
