A pleasant cafe but seating not too comfortable - hard wooden stools and tables too low. For was good though and plentiful had lunch of Ginger Croque and Plat Libainais both were good. A selection of fresh juices and smoothies too.

Stopped here twice during our time in Essaouira. The avocado hummus toast was tasty and the croquette was good as well. A great value and light alternate to the countless tajine and Italian options in the area.

We got a little lost finding the cafe (due to severe hunger clouding navigation) but it only made the experience better. The smoothies were fresh and delicious and the salads were just the ticket.

The food is very good here for lunch but don't expect a snack ! The portions are big but delicious and the place is very clean. The owner is a very good cook and encouraged us to have a piece of his cake as well! A must for lunch.

Highly recommended, and a perfect spot to take a breath and relax after all the buzz in the market streets. We stopped at ginger cafe for a little bite around noon and we got the most wonderful juice and cake served by a friendly and welcoming Italian host that just had taken over the place.
