Maximes

Post by hatusu » Wed Feb 08, 2017 10:26 am

Maximes is a VERY upmarket coffee shop and restaurant, catering for both Egyptians and tourists in the style of a medieval Arabic palace. It's situated in beautiful gardens (but also has some indoor seating). Turn right down a small side street immediately after KFC (with KFC on your RH side) and Maximes is on the left. No broken chairs or dirty torn cushions here – it is better than any of the 5* hotel coffee shops Ive been in, but without the 5* prices (eg Nescafe 9LE). It has a very wide ranging drinks menu including smoothies.
Food is also available but I didnt look at the food menu, as the drinks menu was so extensive!

I've seen photographs and read other reports and, although early days, it all looks very promising. Shame it wasn't open when I was around at Christmas.
