The Excelsior is a cafe restaurant in Talaat Harb Street, the busiest street in Downtown Cairo. It is a charming little place, the perfect spot to hang out after taking a walk around the area. You can really soak up the atmosphere, as the shops stay open until at least midnight. The Excelsior has several assortments of coffees and teas, and sahlab which is a hot milk with dried fruit inside, almonds, raisins, dates ... I liked it, but I couldn't have it every day! They also offer simple snacks like sandwiches. All very cheap, 50c drinks, meals between 2 and 3 euros. The clientele is mostly male.
