“Strongly recommended for breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This is a small cafe amongst others in a small, pleasant square just off the main souk. We ate here twice out of our four days in Essaouira. We had the seventy dihram (less than six pounds) breakfast which included: fresh juice, omelette/eggs, bread, crepes, local cheeses, fruit salad and (good) coffee or hot chocolate. Very clean and very high standard. Also very friendly and helpful staff.

“UN VRAI BONHEUR !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The cuisine is excellent of taste and presentation. The service efficient, smiling, genuinely friendly. A super pleasant experience. And they serve the best ice cream in town ! But you have to hurry up as Bibi, the mastermind of the place and Jamal will not be there after April.

“Favourite place for coffee in the sun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Now that I know Essaouira I never order breakfast with the accomodation. Au Bonheur des Dames do it better. Super coffee, excellent service and good food server fresh, topped off with seats in the sun. My favourite place for coffee, wifi and watching the world go by.........
Stay..........don't go..............

“Lunch in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This was recommended to us for lunch, and it did not disappoint. In a delightful position in the Place Des Grains, the English-speaking owner made helpful suggestions to our request for a light lunch (I had smoked salmon with the most delicious vegetable sorbet) Great food, good value, lovely situation. A great place to take a leisurely break.
