Cairo has never been short of bakery shops; in fact, nearly every area has a couple of stores that offer something to suit all tastes and budgets. However, now and then, one craves a deviation from the good ol’ baladi bread or the usual goodies that are found in every supermarket. So here’s a list of places in Cairo that offer you the upgrade that your breadbasket needs:

Ratios Bakery:                                          

Maadi’s bakery shop offers a wide spectrum baked goodies; from a range of brown and white sourdough bread, as well as yeast bread, to a round of desserts that include muffins, cookies, cinnamon buns, and waffles. For all the lazy shoppers out there, you can have your freshly baked goods delivered to your doorstep. Ratios Bakery has an online store, and you can also check their Facebook page.


Pâte à Choux:

Pâte à Choux offers a limited selection of items, the majority being desserts and sweet pastries. The brand doesn’t have a place of its own, but according to their Facebook page, Pâte à Choux has its products on offer every Thursday at Maadi’s Community Services Association, where the Farmers’ Market takes place from 9.30 AM.


Madeleine Egypt:

You can find some of their French cakes and pastries at Ratios Bakery on Street 11. Now and then, Madeleine Egypt graces the Facebook feed with their latest dessert menus that you can order online. Speaking of which, lucky New Cairo’s residents can place their orders for delivery through a private message on Facebook, every week before Tuesday.



The Italian-run brand offers a long list of bread and pastries that are available for you to purchase at Maadi’s Community Services Association, in addition to many other seasonal markets that take place across the city. The brand also pairs its various baked products with a host of cheeses, courtesy of Chef Carlo Giovanni.


Vienoiseries Maison:

These homemade goodies are mixed, kneaded, and baked by Christophe Thomas, who offers a variety of baguettes, croissants, muffins, and more. As far as we know, Viennoiseries Maison delivers only in Maadi, and all you need to do is send a WhatsApp to 01027654670.
