When I read the reviews I expected the best breakfast ever. But when I went to the place I was truly disappointed. The food isn't clean & tastes weird. I'm someone who knows Egyptian food & this place simply doesn't deliver what the reviewers raved about. Honestly, only the eggs were good.

I know Mohamed Ahmed Foul shop since maybe 30 years. Taste and Menu almost never changed, and the food had always been so delicious that I do not suggest any improvements. Waiters are always nice and they receive foreign customers with a smile and decent service. It is always full.

Everyone knows Mohamed Ahmed, it's one of Alexandria's landmarks. Foul, falafel, beid, everything you can wish for, you will simply have a breakfast of champions!

Atmosphere is not so good, but the food is classic Egyptian and fairly cheap, it is a landmark of Alexandria, you don't wanna miss it if you are here for tourism :)

It's a fantastic little place that's always busy with locals. Went for breakfast two mornings in a row and tried a different foul each time. The falafel is also very good. It is a must do if you're in Alexandria.

Honestly... You will never eat Foul and taamiya(falafel) in your life better than mohamed ahmed to a degree it made me feel that the foul and falafel i ate in other places is not real. Very affordable, addictively delicious, fast service, really crowded but its worth it. Everybody in egypt knows the restaurant even polititians and presidential candidates eat there.... More

If You love falafels and foul, this is Your breakfast place!! If You never have tasted them, this is Your breakfast place!! A small local restaurant, they don't attract You with any decoration, just tables and chairs, but their food You can't miss!! Good thing with this Arabic breakfast is that You won't be hungry before dinner. Cheap price also!
