“Why didn't i buy more!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

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! Always busy- loved by locals- not many tourists but still seek this place out. Just remember you have to pay the cashier first, get a ticket saying what you want, and then collect it. Its a busy shop but don't be put off, just point and ask if you don't know arabic for dounut :)

“one of the best in the Middle East”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I have been buying all my sweets for my friends back in Greece from El Abd and everybody loves them. They are dry (an often problem with this kind of pastry sweets in y country is that they make them very syrupy and wet) yet sweet enough. Very well packaged, very clean and the prices seem ok and absolutely delicious.
The little boxes that have different varieties of typical sweets are a must.
I understand that the rhythms of work are hectic since the place is always packed yet there is a lot room for improving the staff manners :)

“Addict to it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

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
