Fishawi's, Cairo

Khan El-Khalili
Cairo
Egypt
Concierge.com's insider take:

They don't serve food, but Fishawi's, the famous 200-year-old coffee shop in an alley of the Khan El-Khalili, is a good place to take a break from shopping and sample the refreshing (and in this case hygienically prepared) sweet drinks of Cairo. The mixed clientele includes students from Al-Azhar University, Italian and Russian tourists in strappy dresses, and young Islamic couples who smoke shisha on wooden benches under huge baroque mirrors while watching the parade of fortune-tellers, souvenir vendors, and shoe shiners who make their trade off Cairo visitors. Try hibiscus, sugarcane, carob, tamarind, and licorice juices, as well as sahlab, a drinkable pudding of hot milk thickened with ground pistachios and rose water.
