5 Coffee shops to hide in from summer heat

In this sweating hot weather, a big cup of iced coffee or frappe sounds like the perfect companion. We gathered a list of different coffee shops across different areas in Cairo, where you can run away from the summer’s burning sun

COVA coffee

Located in Abu el Feda, Zamalek. This place has a variety of coffee and breakfast options with prices that are totally handy. It also has a high rate on Google (4.6) so it must be  providing a good quality and service.

Naguib Mahfouz cafe

This place was founded in 1989 and was built as a tribute to the Nobel prize winner and Egyptian novelist naguib Mahfouz. It’s also located in a historical area in Egypt, the one and only Khan El- Khalili! 

The decorations of the cafe with the wooden chairs and the staff’s red fezzes will give you the ultimate experience of the good old days in Egypt.
