Alexandria is known for her fish, her desserts, her beautiful Corniche walks and, *drumroll* early morning wholesome breakfasts. In this listicle, we scoured the Pearl of the Meditereanean for the best spots to have brekkie -- here they are.
Mohamed Ahmed // El Raml
This restaurant is basically royalty in Alexandria, serving arguably the best Egyptian breakfast in the country! The Guradian even published an article in 2015 saying how Mohamed Ahmed makes the world’s best falafel. We totes agree.
