el-Fishawy Cafe in Khan el-Khalili Bazaar
Submitted: Jul 24, '09
Great Travel Moment
My husband and I traveled to Egypt for a two week visit. I love all things Ancient Egyptian and have wanted to visit Egypt since childhood. My trip was made more spectacular because I experienced it with my husband, my best friend. We did not use an escorted tour, but traveled rather independently. We met arranged contacts at each location, who handled our paperwork and arranged our individual visits to historical sites. We also had free time to wander on our own. We visited the centuries old Khan el-Khalili Bazaar..a maze of alleyways and souks where you can buy anything at all. The sights and sounds and smells were mesmerizing. We managed to find the 200+ year old el-Fishawy Café, a coffee and tea shop deep within the maze. Don relaxed with a Turkish coffee and I had a mint tea in this exotic café. El-Fishawy has never closed its doors, not even for a day.
