Cozy, welcoming, beautiful coffee shop and restaurant, that roasts its own coffee beans and makes the best coffees ever, serves delicious milkshakes, bakes its pizzas in an Italian stove oven, offers generous servings of pasta dishes, and serves a super tasty homemade banana cake and tantalizing chocolate-banana pancakes - all this in a gorgeous backyard garden-terrace intimate atmosphere where you will really feel at home.

Athanor is a small cafe in Dahab that has seating indoors and out. The food is basic (pizzas, pastas, sandwiches) but the drinks (house-roasted coffee, great hot chocolates, and amazing thick milkshakes) are the reason to go here.

Very nice back yard, away from sun and noicy street. Pizzaz, salads and coffee are very good. Only down part is that service is little slow. So make sure you have time, that way you will enjoy this place even more :-)
