Where to Go for a Proper Afternoon Tea in Cairo
One of the most iconic British traditions, the Afternoon Tea, has found its way to buzzing Cairo. The Afternoon Tea not only offers delicate snacks between lunch and dinner, but it also offers the opportunity to pamper yourself and relax from the day’s stress we all face.
Whether treating your spouse or spending an afternoon with your friends, nothing feels more exquisite than indulging in fresh pastries, little sandwiches and a cup of tea.
Here are five places in Cairo for those of you in search for a traditional British afternoon:
