“Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Ice cream on a hot evening is what Egyptians enjoy doing. It isn't in their culture, but the Bakery has definitely become a favorite pass-time for them. The ice cream is comparable to Italian Gelatto and they allow you two scoops of two different flavors. My favorite are vanilla and strawberry!

“Yum, yum!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Try the traditional Egyptian sweets like Basboussa (semolina cake soaked with sugar syrup), konafa (a bit like shredded wheat, soaked in sugar syrup) and ba'alawya (filo pastry layers with pistachio or other nuts in the middle.
Like I said, yum, yum!

“Most popular bakery in downtown Cairo”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Got a selection of great western creamy cakes as a thank you to staff at Tulip Hotel and we all had a very nice cake and coffee/tea afternoon! The selection is mind boggling and less expensive than some of the more western type bakeries like La Poire, etc. El Abd specializes in both European type cakes, cookies, and Arabic sweets and is by far the most popular among local Egyptians, so everything is fresh daily.
