Dearest reader, we are quite aware that you are no stranger to the curiously creative croissant variations that have been popping up all over Cairo’s culinary scene (which have been probably sending the French into a collective coma), but rest assured that there is plenty more where these flaky concoctions come from. The newest dough-rolling alchemist joining the ranks of the flaky movement is none other than Canelè.

Presenting Cairo’s coolest croissant - literally - the Heliopolis-residing patisserie is working the OG golden flaky fella, flipping it, reversing it, AND filling it with a whole lotta ice-cream and warm sauces.

So, if perhaps you often find yourself indecisive when it comes to your snack of choice - or one might even embrace the puns and say ‘feelin’ hot and cold’ given the nature of the dessert at hand - Canelè is truly giving us the best of both worlds; a fresh out-of-the-oven croissant filled with the frosty love of vanilla ice-cream.

And remember, calories are a social construct…
