The American multinational doughnut giant made its way to Egypt a few years back. Since then, the franchise has kept popping up in different spots around the city, including Zamalek, Dokki, and Cairo Festival City Mall. Dunkin Donuts boasts an aesthetically pleasing edge, from hot pink and green apple glazes to the fun coconut shreds and coloured sprinkles. Dunkin Donuts also serves coffee, wraps, bagels, sandwiches, croissants, and much more alongside their ever-changing doughnut selection.
