This is what Arabian nights are made of: part souk, part bohemian lounge, Cafe Cairo makes the perfect sanctuary from the high street drivel. A cosy den of dim lighting, snug seating and wayward musicians, this spot has all sorts rubbing their eyes in disbelief, but it's not a mirage - it's real, and we're into it. Aladdin, eat your damn heart out. The movement (yeah, it's a movement) started 20 years ago when Cafe Cairo was merely a tent at Glastonbury. It developed a bit of a cult following, and soon found a permanent home in Brixton. Some of the old regulars still come round, alongside shiny new patrons smoking shisha side by side. What else? Banging pizzas, cabaret nights, live music, free film screenings on Sundays, and unlimited free toast, that's what else. This is one of the last true beacons of community in London - get here quick.
