BeReal & Gluten-Free At New Cairo’s Frida Cafe

Plant-based girlies rejoice! New Cairo’s got the cafe for you…

Layla Raik

It’s not news that hot girls are often plagued with some sort of chronic disease or the other, but having scary labels like diabetes, PCOS and IBS be a game of ‘tag yourself’ never stopped anyone from having fun - a feat Frida ensures is possible. Dreaming up sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free delights, Frida is an indie heaven/cafe/bakery keeping the city safe from the danger of self-destructive cravings.

Crafting delicious treats like the Mexican tres-leches-but-make-it-plant-based, and the picturesque matcha chocolate cake, Frida has successfully established itself as a plant-based girlie go-to date spot. I mean, who wouldn’t split an absolutely divine, metabolism-stimulating pecan pie with the pecan to their pie?

Because the honey rush is real, it’s good to interrupt your day-use solitary study dates with a savoury treat, like one of Frida’s labneh zaatar wraps or a scrumptious truffle bresaola. That, paired with a cold glass of fresh juice, a delicious vitamin-rich daily greens smoothie or a golden immunity concoction gives even the worst of days a halfway-through jumpstart. You can also spring for the more caffeinated sugar-free Spanish latte - an oddity of the wonders of the conscious eating world. 

You can find Frida’s goodies at B-URN Zamalek or at their booth in Swan Lake New Cairo.
