“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We had a simple kofta sandwich and a pot of mint tea in this very popular little cafe. It was excellent, although the place has definitely benefitted from TripAdvisor as it was packed! Try to get a seat on the terrace (good views).

“Sit and relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Nice hangout. Right in the middle of the action. Great for a cup of coffee(spiced is wonderful) or tea . The employees are very friendly . They let you enjoy the atmosphere. I didn't try the food but it did look good. The owners have a few places in town. All different venues. Looking forward to trying one for lunch.

“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.
