This unusually tidy place serves good, filling kushari . If you find it lacks mojo, throw in a dash of the vinegar and spicy red sauce...
Cap d’Or information
Lonely Planet review
The Cap d’Or, just off Sharia Saad Zaghloul, is a top spot to relax, and one of the only surviving typical Alexandrian bars. With beer flowing generously, stained-glass windows, a long marble-topped bar, plenty of ancient memorabilia decorating the walls and crackling tapes of old French chanson (a type of traditional folk music) or Egyptian hits, it feels very much like an Andalusian tapas bar. Bohemian crowds come to drink cold Stella beer, snack on great seafood, and just hang out at the bar talking or playing guitar with fellow drinkers. Thursday and Friday nights are more ‘open-minded’ than most nights in Alexandria.
