We popped in for a light bite whilst doing some odd jobs and a bit of shopping in town. As always made to feel most welcome.

Was surprised to see the menu and just had to try it. Very pleased indeed. Absolutely divine pastry. A welcome change to Luxor usual dining. Thank you and very friendly owner too!

Lovely little cafe opening out onto small side street. Sit and watch Luxor life go by whilst enjoying beautifully cooked plain English dishes. The homemade pies and millionaire's shortbread are lovely. Staff are great.

This is very much an expats hangout. The menu is orientated towards British tastes and is quite limited. The only coffee on offer is Nescafé, which is disappointing. The outlook from the cafe is of a typical Luxor street. The cafe is situated within a short distance of the main hotels, which is good for those who don't want to... More

This is a great little spot on a little side street just across from the Nile and a couple of major hotels (we walked from the Steigenberger). The food was excellent. Hot, fresh and delicous. Since the owner is a Brit, I decided to try the meat pie and was not disappointed. My friend who travels in Luxor frequently loves... More

Had a very ordinary experience here. No real coffee, only Nescafé. We both ordered the falafel burger, so admittedly I can't speak to the quality of the broader menu, however it was just a dryish piece of falafel in a bun with some lettuce and tomato. Wifi was barely working. Wished we had gone elsewhere.

We actually ate lunch here twice during our stay in Luxor! We struggled to find nice places for lunch - a lot of places that may otherwise have great food are terribly dark and unappealing but the Secret Garden Cafe is open and airy and you can watch the life go by in the street while you wait for your...
