Coming straight from Greece with three branches in Cairo and one at Seashell North Coast, Coffee Berry has become the go-to spot for coffee and a cozy social hub. There they offer an extensive list of beverages with their special filtered coffee that comes in six types.
With 11 types of coffee, two house blends (premium and flavored) with decaf option, single-origin coffees, six types of teas, and unique syrups for add-ons, Coffee Berry has become one of the most reliable coffee house, and we had to try it.

Coffee Berry offers a wide selection of hot and cold beverages with a seasonal hero this year, the Santa’s Mocha with a nice flavor, and a generous layer of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. But if you know Coffee Berry, you know that means delicious filtered coffee that you cannot find anywhere else in town. Another signature drink would have to be the iced Berrycino Berry.
Dishes and Beverages Sampled
Cold weather requires a good cup of coffee and a light bite. We started our visit with Santa’s Mocha that had us warm inside with chocolate and coffee cooled off by the rich cream and sprinkles on top.
Then we proceeded with a turkey Panini in a soft bread filled with a generous piece of melting cheese and a light pink mayo sauce, perfect for lunch or a mid-day snack. We paired that up with a cappuccino with almond milk. If the cappuccino is done right, you know you are in a true coffee-house, and to top it off, they are one of the rare places around Egypt that offer a variety of milk substitutes with options like almond, soy, and oatmeal milk.
Then since nothing is better than coffee and cake, we tried a trio of their freshly baked cakes: carrot, Lotus, and Oreo, paired with their signature Berrycino Berry and Latte Freddo.
The Berrycino Berry was like a dessert in a cup, sweet, milky, and full of berries and whipped cream, while the Latte Freddo was a coffee-Licious dream with a strong kick that gives you an energetic boost of both rainy days and hot summer nights.
Other Menu Items that Appealed
Coffee Berry is known for its packs of nuts, chocolate, and granola bars that are made specifically for them. Besides the variety of exceptional coffee, they have a small juice station that does wonders.
At the juice station, they have fresh-pressed juices, smoothies, and refreshing granitas in a few flavors.
When it comes to the light bites, they serve baked goods like Semite, croissants, sandwiches and cakes, and salad bowls.
Décor & Ambiance
Coffee Berry is present around the city of Cairo with three branches. We have visited the New Cairo branch in O1 Mall, with both an indoor and an outdoor area that turned into a social hub for students and young professionals who enjoy a nice cup of coffee, a friendly environment, and comfortable chairs to turn into their small working space.
The ambiance is inviting, the beverages are overflowing, and the staff is very knowledgeable.
They are expanding on their cold brew line and soon will be selling the tools along with the coffee packs and beans so you can make the Coffee Berry creations at home!
