Epicerie Rio is the Port Said Breakfast Spot from the '50s

Nostalgia and tastiness go hand in hand at this retro breakfast joint in Port Said.

Kurt Galalah

Bringing nostalgia to the game is one of Port Said’s oldest and most charismatic breakfast and brunch spot, Epicerie Rio. Established in 1951, this place is a be2ala on steroids. Everything you could want a deli to be and more, they have achieved. 

The brekkie joint has gorg options like pasterma toast, grilled cheese in shami bread, as well as halwa sandwiches galore. The best part? Absolutely none of their menu items are a piaster more than LE 15.

We don’t know about you, but right now we’re fancying a hot sandwich and piping cup of Turkish coffee along the Mediterranean port of Port Said doesn’t sound too shabby. Find them across Cinema Rio in Gomhoreya Street, or call them at 0663201315.
