The place offers a wide variet of cafes and restaurants. We had brunch, typical Egyptian food in Baladina. The staff are fine. The view and location are wonderful. One is basically directly on the bank of the Nile. Recommended in day light.

Very nice place with probably the best Nile view in town; there’re a number of restaurants & coffee shops that match most tastes; however most of them are on the pricey side

No. I don't think so. I was there during daylight and I paid only for my coffee. I entered the place for free.

I would recommend Shakespeare and Co or Balladina, but there are a lot of other options. If the group is big better make a reservation at least a day in advance. There should not be a minimum charge.
