Cafe, gelato and amazing hot chocolate

Go here for the hot chocolate and you will not be disappointed! I'm always dubious when a guide recommends a place but she was right. They also serve some great ice creams and good coffee and the location is ideal for people watching.

we ordered a tee verveine and it tasted terrible (like soap). we tried to return it, but the waitress would not take it back, claiming that it's all fine and normal, which it clearly wasn't.

We stopped by here most afternoons to watch the world go by and have lovely coffee and the thickest hot chocolate - I ate mine with a spoon!

This café is on one of the main squares in Essaouria and is a great spot to sit and let the world go by. Inside there is a small shop which sells ice creams/ food to take away. There are a tempting selection of gelato on display with a good variety of flavours. I visited twice, the first time I... More

This cafe has a big terrace, and you can get many kinds of coffee, juices and other drinks and dishes on the side here. Such as ice cream, croissants, cake and pancakes. I had a cafe Africain, a cappuccino with Nutella, which was nice (see photo). Street artists will come by to entertain you and ask you for a coin.... More

If you are more into having a good italian cappuccino and good ice cream you should definitely try this café. An extra plus is the view to the harbour.

One of the best terraces at street level of Essaouira' a place wherewe had pleasant ice cream and an expresso. A place to watch the visitors and the locals going in and ouut of the medina. The girls waiters are really the main negative point, it looks that for them having customers are a nuisance
