Where to Find the Best Mille Feuille in Egypt - A Scene Eats Guide

A thousand layers of creamy flaky heaven? Where do we sign up?

Riham Issa

In the delectable world of delicate French confections, one treat stands as a formidable challenge, requiring exceptional skill and a dash of daring: the Mille Feuille. This intricately crafted delicacy consists of three layers of pâte feuilletée and two rich layers of decadent crème diplomat filling. The artisanal process involves up to forty hours of folding butter-encased dough repeatedly, resulting in thin, golden, and sumptuous layers of airy and flaky puff pastry. In simple terms, it's not for the faint of heart.

The precise origin of its current name may be enigmatic, but it is widely held that the elegant dessert was originally referred to as 'Napoletano' – a nod to the French emperor Napoleon himself. This nomenclature was inspired by his fondness for indulging in generous quantities of cream-filled puff pastries on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo.

Without further delay, we’ve meticulously curated a list of Egypt's finest Mille Feuille establishments that allow you to immerse yourself in layers of creamy delight.
