Beano's Cafe, Zamalek, Cairo

Beano's is a chain of cafés in Egypt, and it serves the best coffee I have ever had in a chain (Sorry, Starbucks!). You can also get a range of sandwiches ($3.13) or other items like satay ($2.80). (My perfect coffee was a double espresso with hot milk on the side.)

The other nice thing is that you can linger as long as you like over your coffee and use their wireless Internet connection.

I went to the one in Zamalek (8 El Marsaly Square), but there are other branches in the downtown area, Heliopolis, and in Alexandria. They deliver food as well.

They also have very nice looking cakes, but when I asked if I could photograph one, the manager had to be called. He probably would have said yes, but I was too impatient to wait for a decision!

I've been to Beanos in Sharm el Sheik and had a cinnamon roll , which was to die for . Can they be got anywhere else on earth ...
