I ate at "The Ginger" three times with the friends I was traveling with. Each time we were delighted and full. The sandwiches are great and do order the carrot cake! We often sat after our meal to draw and talk and this was never a problem. It's a great little place to watch the world go by. OK so... More

After reading all the great reviews below for this cafe, we sought it out after a week of tagines and couscous in Marrakesh. We came for Lunch and it was very quiet with only another small 3 person group sat down. We had to say hello three times to get the manageress' attention who was in the little kitchen just... More

Hi Megan, we appreciate you took the time to write this review and are very sorry that you did not have a good experiençe. The food we prepare at Ginger Café is always freshly made and therefore takes a little longer to arrive. Evidently dirty tables and the delays in taking your order are not acceptable and we will raise... More

The food here is prepared fresh and is delicious. The salads are imaginative and the balsamic dressing tasty. There's attention to detail with the presentation too. The halved tomatoes were dipped in sesame seeds. Real feel good food with plenty of natural vitamins. The highlight and surprise was the ginger tea. Fresh mint, fresh pieces of root ginger, lemon and... More

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. It was nice to have a break from the usual tagine and couscous offerings too. We sat out the front, which is shaded so makes a... More
