We had Kashari, a falafel wrap and a vegan vegetable pasty, with tea (soya milk) in this brilliant plastic free cafe. Always fresh and always delicious, love it.

Loved the Egyptian street food; had the falafel wrap, my son had the fajita flatbread and husband had a pasty. It was all great! Cool area to keep out of the sun, clean and staff friendly
