Fishawi’s Cafe is one of Cairo’s oldest cafés located in the midst of Khan el Khalili market. It has been around since 1710 and is now run by the 7th generation of the Fishawi family!
Fishawi is a typical Egyptian coffeehouse and I think it’s an essential part of the Egyptian experience to stop off for a bit here. Basically at these traditional coffeehouses get together to smoke sisha and drink really strong brewed teas or coffees. You can also get fruit juices. It is a really wonderful place to witness.
