Reasonable prices

Good food and the prices are reasonable: spaghetti Bolognese 35 dhs and omelette 25 dhs (even it was burned a bit).

Like anywhere in Morocco, the service is very slow. But the waiters were friendly and the roof has a great view! This cafe had more interesting food than many of the others we tried - instead of just tagline, kebabs, and couscous, they offered a few other traditional menu items as well.

Love the youthful underground vibe and awesome live Moroccan music they had the night we were here. Great decor. The music and seeing people enjoy it and sing and clap along was probably my favorite experience of Fes.

I stumbled blindly into this cafe and was I glad I did! I was there for a mint tea and to recover from the busy-ness of the medina. The owner told me about a music event happening in the cafe later on that day. I figured I might as well return since I am a big fan of Gnawa music.... More

We dropped in for a quick snack but it was perfect. Moroccan salads, of which you get six well prepared, delicious ones, Moroccan pastries all almond based and equally delicious, excellent mint tea in teapots, and coffee. The owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful, we loved the subdued light and the decor.

We went here for lunch. They have a really nice, covered terrace, but the paninis they served were quite tasteless. It is really cheap though, so if you just want to fill your stomach on your way through the medina it's ok.

This place is large, with multiple rooms, filled with ugly ornate old furniture and cigarette smoke. Not too clean. Food and drink options are extremely limited, and service is apathetic. Don't waste your time.

You're looking for a place to eat don't go here. We ate on the roof terrace which is being redone but I had absolutely no charm and a negligent waitress. The menu is limited. Moroccan salad was generous and tasty but the tajines bland and uninteresting.

We visited this place on a Tuesday and there was a terrific party going on. I would have stayed but there was too much smoke and had to leave. The day after we visited it for dinner, we weren't very hungry but the owner, a very nice man who spoke spanish perfectly, said we could split one of his small... More

Excellent coffee, relaxing atmosphere. Seems a hangout for wealthy young Morrocans. Good ambience. Friendly staff and you can choose the music.
