Don’t worry the Beanary is still open, but in the today in the morning the police took all the tables and two umbrellas !! In the usual gimic of the ( حي ) council controlling outdoor seating.
But this ain’t the first time to happen, as its part of the routine CAT & MOUSE games between the Zamalek Cafes and the حي , where every month or two, they raid all the zamalek cafes and take their outdoors area …so expect Tomorrow morning all tables back out.
Personally i think some places should not have outdoors area especially on 26th of July street as it does obstruct traffic, but places like coffee bean doesnt obstruct as much.
