Arous El Selsela

This authentic Arabic cafe with a modern twist is located on the seafront, opposite the Bibliotheca Alexandria. The roof is made with palm trees. The tables surrounded with big pillows and decorated with big fruit baskets in the middle are typical of Egypt. After you finish your breakfast have some tea or smoke shisha as you enjoy the sea breeze and the sound of the waves. Arabic music also plays in the background, adding to the ambiance.


Mango Lassi

Located in Green plaza, part of the Hilton complex, Brownies has a casual and welcoming atmosphere. It also has a lovely open area to sit in the garden. The staff is friendly and will help you out with the menu and with trying to decide what to eat. Their juices and smoothies are great and they serve tasty desserts. The brownies, of course, are worth trying.

La Poire Cafè

A French cafe in the heart of Alexandria, La Poire Café offers a good selection of pastries alongside snacks, pizza, salads and sandwiches. The food served here is fresh. You can complement your meal with a hot or a cold drink. Located in the Carrefour mall, this is a great spot to come for breakfast or brunch just before or after shopping.

Carlos Café
