If David Lynch had wanted to set a movie in Egypt, he would have picked the Virginian for all the smoky bar scenes. But more importantly, this cafe has the best scenic view of Cairo. Period. You can spend hours just watching the rows of buildings stretch on for miles while drinking beer and smoking shisha. You wouldn’t think the food was any good, either, but oh, boy would you be wrong. Incredible grilled meats, soft bread, and big, fresh salads are all worth the hilariously small charge.
