Fodor's Expert Review El Fishawy

$ Islamic Cairo North: al-Husayn Mosque to Bab al-Futuh Café Fodor's Choice

Just past the Hotel el Hussein is this famous café in the Khan al-Khalili bazaar. The area has dozens of cafés, but this is the oldest, best known, and most frequented by Egyptians and visitors alike. Here you can sip a Turkish coffee or mint tea; fresh juice; karkadeh, a hibiscus drink served hot or cold; and sahleb, a warm milk-based drink sprinkled with coconut and nuts. You can also have your shoes shined or smoke a shisha (water pipe).
