Eating

Most of the restaurants and cafes in Siwa cater to tourists and are open from about 8am until late. There are a couple of falafel and fuul (fava bean paste) joints plus an a’aish (flatbread) bakery about 50m off the main square past the Kelany Hotel. For travellers looking for oasis ambience, there are several cosy palm-garden restaurants around Siwa serving the usual combination of Egyptian and Western fare.
