We know how it is, you wake up late and find that by the time you are functioning at the required capacity to ponder your choice of breakfast, all of your favourite joints are no longer serving it. CairoScene is here to the rescue, as always. We found some of the places around Cairo that serve the essential meal all through the day. No longer do you have to awaken at the crack of dawn (ahem, 10 AM) to enjoy some damn pancakes. No longer will you have to settle for stale pizza or leftover pasta from the night before because you failed to rise with the sun. You can mail your thank you letters to us later, first check out these top seven eateries that serve all-day breakfast.

Honorary mention: Mince
Although Mince doesn't serve all their breakfast items throughout the day, they do serve their signature Elvis French Toast, which is a breakfast monster that you can order - and get delivered - all day long. That itself is enough to earn Mince an honourable mention on our all day breakfast list. Good one, Mince!
