when we finish our shopping or before starts we sit at Fishawi cafe, its the trade mark of al Khan, always crowded, but they will quickly find you a table , when you sit there taking your coffee or tea with a shisha if you are a smoker, you will enjoy the passing crowd the the kids selling you souvenirs with cheaper price than shops or tissues, but directly you feel the history, the mirrors & most of the decor still the same from 100 years, i love that place

A must if you visit Khan el Khalili, but the service is very unprofessional. Even in some 3rd degree coffee-shops I had better service.

See, listen & feel beyond the noise & crowds.. some magic are here u ll never forget,, if you want to know some of the place's secrets read a novel of Naguib Mahfouz – Khan Khalily (available in English & other languages)..
Do not miss green tea with mint (Egyptian radional drink)
When you are walking through Khan Khalily to reach the old caffe, don't get annoyed with guys trying to sell you souvenirs, they are harmless , Just smile & say you don’t want any, unless you want to get some.
ENJOY...

If you are in the Khan don't miss the chance to have a tea at Fishawi's ...watch the world go by and be ready for them to try to sell you things as you sit down trying to relax. It is a great time.

I love the whole place you feel like you are part of an oil painted picture but the bad thing about it that there was so many beggars
