“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Really cute little place. Had the falafel 3 times! It's somewhere quiet to just sit an chill.
The turtles are very sweet too.

Tasty food, and good service and the profits pay for English lessons for Moroccans of all ages. Perfect for a light lunch

“Great Snacks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Needing a quick snack before heading to a wedding party we found ourselves on the roof of the Henna Cafe where I met the daughter of the owner who was a delight... and the sandwiches provided were perfect for what was required....

“Welcoming and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I was in Marrarakech in April 2013 and my riad was a short walk to Henna Cafe. I had read on TA about the cafe and knew that I wanted to support it. As I walked passed I could tell that there was a hive of activity and I wanted to spend time here and eventually had an opportunity to spend an afternoon. Not only I was impressed with the sense of community and the welcoming spirit but I also received a beautiful henna tattoo and a lesson on how henna is made. I would definateley be interested volunteering here the next time I'm in Marrakech. The food was yummy too!

“Great opportunity to learn Arabic for just a donation of $2!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

My wife and I were told to go to the Henna Cafe by our Riad staff as the owners have set up the Cafe as a charitable cafe. We were a bit nervous because it doesnt look much from the outside and in fact we thought it was closed. But once inside we were made to feel welcome and were invited to have an arabic lesson which was really helpful. Food was simple but tasty and service friendly if slow.
