“Perfect for tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Café by the spice-square. Good panoramic view (not as good as from the photographic museum though) and nice place for a cup of tea. Friendly and happy.

“Nice place to sit and relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Stopped in here for a drink and little snack. The honey and almond yoghurt drink was lovely, and the crepes were nicely made. Reasonably priced, and nice atmosphere upstairs with a nice view over the spice market. Slow service but that wasn't a problem.

“An oasis in the souk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Maybe anywhere else this place would just be above average, but it's in a prime spot to overlook the spice market, is a local hangout and serves decent drunks at not-too-bad prices, and decent paninis etc. I think it's more of a snack joint than a proper eaterie, but my panini was fine. three floors with a decent view from 1st and 2nd floors, and a large seating area on the ground floor outside the front. Definitely worth a visit with a camera or book to read, or just to daydream.

“Good Simple Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Located just inside the Spice Souk Square and occupying two separate buildings, this little cafe come restaurant is always mobbed and therefore a wait for a table is part of coming here at peak eating times. Forget trying to get up on the second floor rooftop terrace, it is exceptionally popular and you could wait for some time to get a table up there. However street level in the sunshine is a far better people watching position and the service is superb. The waiting staff move at lightning speed. Thoroughly recommend the filled rolls. Chicken, Lamb, Cheese and Vegetarian options all freshly prepared to order. Great lunch stop at about £4 per person for a filled Morrocan roll and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. We visited 3 times during our stay and they were consistently good. One to add to the lunch list.

“Really good sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The chicken and Kefta sandwiches are very tasty! Great view if you can get a seat on the roof terrace. Came everyday for late lunch while shopping in the souks.
