Cafe Riche

 I posted about Cairo's Cafe Riche back in August, questioning whether its currently dining out on its onetime reputation, among other things. I once went there daily, but these days I hear the reopened Riche (it was closed for most of the nineties) is overpriced and touristy. But The Economist has a good piece about its glory days, better documented than some of the stuff I've seen.
