“Sit down and watch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Nice place to sit down during the day and chill. Go to the top floor and watch the rushing marketplace below you or the High Atlas on the horizon. The young staff is very kind. The menth tea costs the usual 10dh but tastes a bit strange compared to others.

The cafe is a great place to watch the world from and has a lovely roof terrace, the coffee isn't great but the atmosphere is!

“Nice little rest spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

In Marrakech in summer you need a few stops in the heat when exploring the souks! I stopped here for a drink with friends on the way back from the souks. A little warning, the lemon juice really is squeezed lemons and extremely sour but very refreshing (after some sugar had been added!). You can sit and watch the world go by, a nice little spot!
