Mall of Arabia
02 2480 2294
I have a lot of fond memories of Cafe Trianon in Egypt. From the wonderful atmospheric and historic one in Alexandria overlooking the sea to the one in Dandy Mall where I frequently would meet up with my friends for mid-morning coffee before heading into Carre Four to finish our grocery shopping.
So on this 3 day trip to Cairo, I had to stop at a Trianon for old times sake.
This location in the Mall of Arabia is quite fancy with shisha options too. I just wanted a simple coffee latte and a pastry.
The coffee (16.95LE) was as good as I remembered and the service was helpful, especially with my rusty broken Arabic. In the pastry cabinet they had 3 eclairs (12.95LE) and a variety of mille feule (which I particularly dislike) and some richer pastries. The eclair looked the least calorific of the options available, so I opted for the maple/hazel flavoured one. Imagine my shock when I tasted banana with my first bite! The universe was screaming at me not to consume that much sugar and cream.
So I just enjoyed my coffee and the free wifi for a bit, before heading out again.
