Till the late fifties it was the best in Egypt and comparable to the top desert shops and cafes all over the world but since it was nationalized from its swiss owners and even when it was owned again in the seventies by an Egyptian what a pity since it had great reputation and its branches are located at central...

Groppi serve light meals, pasta, sandwiches etc and their own brand ice-creams and desserts, shisha can also be taken, fresh juices - a great place for a break in the middle of Cairo - peaceful and fresh

this place was pretty good at the past , but now it is struggling time . I think it kept its old furniture and style and even some staff for many many years . desserts was ok , sevice was ok . The place itself is liked for its historical roots.

This great place had been open since 60 years or more. The more the time passes, the more it looses its beauty. Once a place for the hi-class customers, with a great dining hall with siver forks, to a place where that hall is Locked??? and a cheap cup of tea, and almost empty. Very strange detrioration. It does not... More

This nice building was spoiled by bad managers or outdated minds... I ordered ice cream, it was not even average, tissues are absent on all tables, service was very slow, staff looks like Gestapo agents, this is a scary place!

The service was slow, I was brought a water that I did not order, and assumed it was complimentary, it turned out to be 6EL. The cake was nothing special, but the mango juice was fantastic. I paid at 36EL bill with a 100EL note, and had to ask for my change.

We actually found Groppi accidentally, but were so glad we did. We didn't purchase any chocolate but instead opted for more traditional Egyptian treats. They were delicious. One of the highlights of our snack there was the classes of fresh juice. I enjoyed fresh mango juice while my friend drank fresh strawberry juice. The juice was an amazing treat on... More
