“Great Location, average food”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The location is wonderful for a breakfast! Come early to avoid the smokers and to get a parking. I am disappointed by the menue and the food quality! When opened months ago the fruit platter was perfect; now it is rather a joke. The coffee is very good and the tea is also good, if you ask to fill the tea pot with water. Prices are above average. Service is ok.

“Excellent atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

If you want to relax, and enjoy a casual meal, literally on the banks of the Nile, with a little more of a Western feel, this is the place. We had lunch which everyone enjoyed, and the pastries looked great too.

Simply brilliant! Having ur breakfast in such a beautiful and classy place helps u forget all the stress waiting for u outside in downtown Cairo.

You'll enjoy their lovely coffee, their fresh bakery, their fresh juice, their decent and friendly staff, the whole atmosphere and indeed u'll love the splendid view of the Nile.. :) besides, they have many breakfast packages on their menu, including healthy and non fatty items.

“In Cairo, competes for best cafe”

Leftbank combines a beautiful view of the Nile with nice quiet jazz to make it the perfect place to come for a coffee. Service is outstanding, best in Cairo.

“A great overall experience!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The first thing that hits you as soon as you walk into Left Bank is the incredible view of the Nile. The second thing you'll probably feel is the calm and comfort that emanates from the relaxed yet contemporary decor of the place.

As for the food, it was superb. I had a very good tomato and mozzarella sandwich and my husband had the seafood pasta (which I had a taste of of course), and I'm not exaggerating, but that was the best seafood pasta I've ever tasted anywhere in the world. The portions are also very generous and the prices are reasonable. The waiters were very polite, albeit somewhat slow (probably due to the fact that the place was very busy).

I would definitely go there again and again. Highly recommended :o)
