Lonely Planet review

Arab St's true gem, this informal Egyptian hole-in-the-wall cafe, also known as Al Majlis, is housed in a beautiful shophouse conversion, with seating spilling out into the five-foot way (on both Arab St and Haji Lane). It does wonderful Turkish coffee so is perfect for a daytime pitstop, but the food here is worth making a special trip for, with hummus, olives, felafel, pita, salads, yoghurt and a variety of kebabs all featuring, either as side-dish snacks or as main courses.
