Fodor's Review

Founded in 1908, Cafe Riche was the social headquarters of much of Cairo's theater and literary communities and once had a cabaret where Umm Koulthum got her start in 1922. The food has not changed much since then and features such standard French-influenced Egyptian grill dishes as entrecôte in wine sauce with fries. The steak with pistachios is more innovative (and quite good), while there are all the usual local options, including fatta (a meat or vegetable casserole) and tahini. You can also get a good breakfast here.
