Love Lotus? Here are 10 Places in Cairo Where You Can Get Your Fix of Lotus Desserts

Ice cream and waffles and cakes, oh my!

Lotus biscuit desserts

Step aside Nutella, there’s a sweet new treat spreading around Cairo and it's not chocolate flavoured. Lotus biscuits are golden, crunchy, caramelized biscuits served best with a cup of tea or in just about any dessert. Here are ten places in Cairo where you can enjoy Lotus infused desserts.

 

1.Nola: Lotus Cupcake

 

The best part of eating a cupcake is that you can enjoy it without making a mess. When it comes to this particular cupcake though, we cannot guarantee a mess-free experience.

 2.Cinnabon: The Biscuit Minibon

Sweet buns of cinnamon drizzled with heavenly buttercream frosting. “It can't get any better” we told ourselves, “they can’t top this”. Well… they just did. With Lotus crumble. And we love it. 

 3.Say Cheese: Lotus Cheesecake

 

“The greatest advancement in the field of Cheesecakery since putting it in a Jar” - Cheesecake Historians (probably)

4.Olivo: Lotus Pistachio Pancakes

Picture it: a stack of pistachio pancakes, five stories tall. A cool scoop of vanilla ice cream rests atop a fine bed of crumbled Lotus. Your heart pounds as the waiter approaches with a small porcelain vial. He tips the vial ever so gently, sending a fine stream of caramel to drizzle down the ice cream, down the pancakes, down your arm- wait! What are you doing! Oh my god wait till he’s finished!

5.Sultana: Lotus Ice Cream Cake

A sweet lotus desert for a party of eight (or a night of binge watching Netflix alone, we won’t judge). 

6.La Poire: Lotus Cake

With a picture this enticing we know you’re probably not even reading this right now. It’s okay. We get it.

7. 4 degrees:  Lotus Softserves

The good news: 4 degrees serves Lotus Ice Cream.

The bad news: You’re going to have to pick between their range of frosty lotus treats.

 The great news: You’re an adult and no one can stop you from buying all of them. 

8.Chimney Cone Factory: Lotus Chimney Cone

 

They took a donut, spun it into a cone, and added ice-cream. As if that wasn’t enough, they then topped it all off with Lotus. Honestly, they had as at donut.

9.The Batter Half & Co : Lotus  Ice Cream

 

They say revenge is best served cold, apparently, so is Lotus. What does this mean? Our scientists are still trying to figure it out.

 10.Salties: Lotus Honeycomb Chocolate

 

We’re not sure whether the best part of this dessert is the honeycomb or the fact that you can eat one (or five) in just one bite.
