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.

We enjoyed a great lunch at Ginger. Excellent service, beautiful salads and fresh juices. Sit outside in the sunshine or eat inside if too hot.

We stopped at Ginger Cafe with our 5 kids for lunch and ordered a variety of menu items. Everything was excellent! The juices, sandwiches and salads. It took a while to get the food but it was well worth the wait.

We had lunch here and the salads made a refreshing change from tagines. Delicious tangy ginger tea and freshly made citrus drink. Everything seemed made to order so leisurely.
