“Cool, friendly cafe with the best quiz ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is a really cool wee cafe which is hidden away in the new town. The staff are very friendly, the food is good and well priced and there's an awesome quiz in English every Monday night which is open to everyone. It's a great hang out spot with free wifi and a mini library where you can purchase books for some holiday reading. Definitely worth a visit.

“friendly bar meets book shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Friendly place to come and relax.they only serve flag beer on draft , which if you can put up with the cigarette smoke, the free WiFi makes this a great place to relax, research and meet people. Hard to find so just head for the hotel toulousain, enter the courtyard and you'll see it on your left. Enjoy!

“Cool cafe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

This is a really relaxed place to eat. The food is great and the service friendly. There are newspapers to read and books to browse. It is certainly worth leaving the medina for cafe du livre!

Great atmosphere, reminds me of 'home' but without the hassle! Fun place to play Quiz Night or just chill with a salad and a beer.

“Fun and friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

After reading about Cafe Du Livre in my guidebook I'm so happy I checked it out. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere found not so often found in Marrakech. Monday's Quiz Night is always a good time and a great way to meet some of the local (mostly English-speaking) ex-pats. Their selection of English books is very nice and the living room feel of the lounge area is cozy and comfortable. The manager is also super helpful and informative so if you have any questions about navigating the city she's the one to ask!
