Euro Deli: Low Key, Outdoor Breakfast in Maadi
Located on a quiet street in Maadi Degla, this Euro Deli location took us by surprise with its relaxed atmosphere and nice variety of seating options. The spacious outdoor area is lined with trees and shrubs, where tables are located under the sun or on the covered patio. Indoors you’ll find tall tables with bar stools overlooking the patio.
Open at 9AM, it makes for a great breakfast spot on the weekends. It’s also a practical venue for casual business meetings and working on–the-go.
Before we get to the heart of the matter (food), bear in mind that patience is a virtue. Like too many places we know, the staff seemed to disappear frequently making it difficult to catch anyone’s attention. Once the order was placed, though, it didn’t take long until we were digging in garden side, with little to no traffic around.
Comprising the menu is a variety of lighter eats including breakfast, mezzes and salads (14LE-30LE), a wide sandwich selection (16LE-28LE), pizzas (18LE-28LE), heavier hot dishes like steak and chicken platters (20LE-54LE) and most importantly, desserts (7LE-24LE).
Available to drink are coffee options including espresso doppio for 14LE, milkshakes, cocktails and fresh juices. For 12LE, our fresh lemon juice was mediocre, though we hear the strawberry is a routinely good pick.
