"Omar Sharif Cafe 1" Top 5 Page for this destination Information & Sources Tip by travelife

Information & Sources, Cairo: 35 reviews and 33 photos


Well, the cafe has a different name but I just don remember it right now. This cafe is perhaps surviving for nearly 100 years. And it is still visited by the Egyptian born Hollywood legend Omar Sharif. There are also few tourists. But it caters mostly the locals.

    I think you must mean El Fishawy coffee shop in Khan el Khalili: it's a Cairo institution! (Omar Shsrif narrates the beginning of the IMAX 'Mysteries of Egypt' film from one of its tables.)
