The cafes of Alexandria

The cafes of Alexandria - An excursion in Alexandria, Egypt
Featuring vast rooms hung with old-fashioned paintings and large tarnished mirrors and grand terraces facing the sea, Alexandria’s cafes are classics of their sort, almost a trademark of the Mediterranean city. Old Alexandrians, who assert that they are the “real thing” as their family has been here (at the very least) since the time of Alexander the Great, pass the time smoking and watching the sea, indifferent to the hubbub. When the wind blows too strongly, they go inside and begin endless games of backgammon or dominoes. Either that or they spend hours immersed in the newspaper. In the meantime, their wives enjoy the delights of tea and cream cakes in the patisseries on Saad Zaghloul Square.
