“Fresh, fresh, fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Excellent fresh food, the salads and juice are freshly prepared, light, and well presented. I've eaten here twice and the daily salads do vary depending on the day you visit and some items are not always available.

“So nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

A lovely place to chill out, after a busy day in the medina of Essaouira.
I will return any time I return to this town, which I definitely have planned!

The food is a welcome break from hot tagines. Very fresh, tasty and great value for money. After going once we had to go back!

“A little oasis of freshness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ginger is a tiny little place run by a young Argentinian/Spanish couple. Their ethos is freshly prepared, mainly vegetarian food that varies from day to day. Hygiene standards are up to scratch, so there's no issue with dreaded food poisoning from lettuce leaves. As well as salads, there are delicious toasted sandwiches made with Moroccan flat breads and a wide range of juices and smoothies. With only a handful of tables, it fills up quickly at lunchtime. It also offers similarly wholesome breakfasts. Definitely one to go back to.

“Lovely fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Fed up with tagine and loads of bread this cafe offered fine fresh light food and incredibly helpful staff. Only wish I had had time to experience the cooking school. Eve
