Nice little cafe and a nice break in the shade. Beatifull henna tattoos, without the noise and hustle you will get at the marketplace. Food and drink was really good, and the turtle on the top floor was a great hit with the kids. If in Marrakech, this is a must-go! If not for all the above mentioned reasons, then... More

The food is fantastic and the henna is incredible. Fatima is very quick and professional. Her staff is delightful. I highly recommend this place on your next trip to Marrakech!

My sisters and I spent around 3 hours here talking to the lovely staff, eating the food (the khleer sandwich is amazing) and having our henna done. The henna they use is perfectly safe and all the proceeds go to the school the business runs. It's an amazing place and i love the little lip balm I bought as well!

This place was a little difficult to find but was well worth the hunt. The food was great and very cheap but the highlight was the skill of the lady doing the tattoos. I watched her do a couple on other people before my turn and I couldn't believe how easy she made it seem. A word of warning though.... More

We had such a relaxing afternoon at the Henna Cafe yesterday. We ordered the vege soup, tea and hommus to share which was so reasonably priced, fresh and delicious. The owner of the cafe Sarah did our Henna at the table, taking the time to share the story of the cafe with us. Definitely a must do in Marrakech. We... More

Fantastic work going on here, glad to be supporting this. Went back over and over because it was a haven. Good food, advice and beautiful henna. Staff were the friendliest I've met. There was wifi.

Staffed by Louis and co this cafe is designed to use the profits from the cafe to help educate local youngsters for free, offer small financial loans to young mothers and hopefully set up some micro-finance schemes to help people set up their own businesses. Not only is the ethos to help locals in a sustainable way the food is... More

Excellent lunch and beautiful safe henna for my daughter and me. Would go again. Tortoises kept my son amused while we had our henna done, so every one was happy.

We went there four times and always enjoyed our stay at the cosy terrace. We tried a range of sandwiches–all good. The staff is very nice and always smiling. The henna tattoos are made by a older lovely lady with great experience. She draws fast and pretty close to the pattern that you chose from a thick folder. Take some... More
