It might seem impossible to find a quiet place to study or work in the middle of our crazy-ass city. Unfortunately mama w baba don’t understand that home isn’t the best place to study, especially when someone calls out for you every couple of minutes and the TV in the living room is set to the loudest volume. On the upside though, Cairo has several cozy spots that are easy on the eyes and ears, and perfect for getting some work done.



A quiet, cozy place that has books, food, beverages & good music; in other words, heaven. Check out some of these great spots around Cairo:

11. and there’s always El Nady 

Yes, el nady. We all have sports club membership cards abandoned in our wallets and it’s about time that we put them to good use. Clubs are great places to study, especially when you’re broke, and sick of enclosed spaces, and sooner or later, we all reach both of those points.

Working hours: *Varies* Sunrise- 12:00 am
