“Delicious cheese and green olive sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is a really fun respite from the souk. Roof terrace with great view, soaking up the atmosphere but with some peace and quiet. Absolutely delicious cheese and crushed green olive sandwich. Always good! I've been time and time and again and love the atmosphere. Convinced their are some hippies that have been hanging out there ever since the seventies!

“Nice n Quick break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a nice little cafe to stop over in while on a trip to the souk.

The food is good, tasty.
The service is efficient.
The value for money is great.
The only trouble is getting a seat inside sometimes as there can be quite a bit of waiting.

No-fuss, quick meal

The only downside is if seated outside, it can get pretty hot and uncomfortable.

“great pit stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Perfect little place to grab a sandwich (I had chicken- delicious & cheap) or a cup of tea and people watch. The staff was extremely attentive & friendly, they even remembered us from visiting 2 days in a row. Great find

“Excellent Little Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place is an excellent mid-way stop in the Medina. It's pretty cheap, so we visited a couple of times, sometimes for a Coke, sometimes a mint tea (which you have to pour yourself - we made a mess!). It supposedly offers free wifi, but we never managed to hook up to it.

“Not sure what all the fuss is about?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Having read many positive reviews (here and elsewhere) we recently tried Cafe des Epices for a late lunch and whilst it is OK I really struggle to understand what all the fuss is about. We had sandwiches, they were OK, nothing better, as was the service, however the coffee was pretty good! For me, best thing about Cafe des Epices is being able to sit and watch life go on in the market below.
If only the food was as interesting as the view!
