Some of us remember the days when food shopping in Cairo was a challenging experience. While some items were readily available, the quality was basic, and anything that evoked nostalgic memories from trips abroad had to be hunted down or stashed inside our return luggage when we managed to get away on holiday.
Nowadays, things are improving exponentially. The addition of a specialty store, Jones the Grocer has just raised the bar even further. First launched in Australia in 1996 with the aim of offering an enhanced grocery experience for aficionados of world-renowned cheese, charcuterie and exclusive condiments, along with a café using the ingredients in a creative menu, Jones the Grocer has since expanded across the globe and can be found in over 20 worldwide locations.
Now, the latest Cairo addition in Sheikh Zayed’s Galleria40, proudly offers an exclusive range of private-label gourmet products, freshly-baked pastries and breads, charcuterie products, and a cheese-lovers treasure trove of hard-to-find varieties.
Known for its iconic ‘flat white’ coffee, the café also offers fresh, delicious food, including vegan and vegetarian-friendly sandwiches, and artisan specialties. Remaining true to its Australian roots, an Australian Wagyu beef burger also features on the café menu.
Open from 8 am to 12 am daily, Jones the Grocer is a handy hub for anyone seeking to indulge their ‘foodie’ cravings, from morning till late at night.
