Their Coffee Latte and hot chocolate are my favorite as well as their chocolate muffin. the waiters and waitresses are very welcoming You got a nice outside caffe trottoire setting for summer and a warm in-side setting...

The coffee is below average given the price charged Service is terrible, staff are arrogant, incompetent and seriously lack motivation In fairness the Hamra store was a much better experience After paying 1500 lira for an extra shot making it a us$6+ cop of coffee this must have been the worst coffee experience i have ever had

Love this Costa because it is great for people-watching. Go to the Hamra branch for the best people-watching. It is the former Horseshoe café where artists and intellectuals used to hang out.

The Costa on Hamra Street is very close to my apartment and great for a quick coffee. Well quick, the cups are HUGE. The Americano is nice and tasty. Outdoor seating is even better. Always something to see on Hamra Street. A nice place and good coffee. Who needs more

i had a drink with a friend on Saturday morning in Hamra Street, sat outside, its like a small balcony facing a vibrant street, you'll definitely enjoy it if you like to have a drink in the sun watching ppl doing some shopping :)

it's typical Italian flavour and is really good. Great place to meet friends or even to be alone to get some work done as it offers WI-FI and cafe food to nibble on.
