At this Italian cafe you can eat fresh ice cream every day. Your only problem will be to pick your favourite taste among the large choice. And yes, you can also have an Espresso or any other good cup of coffee while watching the never ending live show going on at the square Moulay Hassan in front of you. The... More

Great little place with amazing gelato. Perfect for a hot sunny day. Went here for ice cream (two scoops for 15dirham) every day for 7days and never got tired. Lots of flavours, each one delicious.

Best place to sit down , have a cafe au lait ( if like me, by this time, you are fed up of mint tea) and watch the world go by on the main square. When you are done, get some ice cream, it is very good.

we ordered a tee verveine and it tasted terrible (like soap). we tried to return it, but the waitress would not take it back, claiming that it's all fine and normal, which it clearly wasn't.

Go here for the hot chocolate and you will not be disappointed! I'm always dubious when a guide recommends a place but she was right. They also serve some great ice creams and good coffee and the location is ideal for people watching.

We stopped by here most afternoons to watch the world go by and have lovely coffee and the thickest hot chocolate - I ate mine with a spoon!

This café is on one of the main squares in Essaouria and is a great spot to sit and let the world go by. Inside there is a small shop which sells ice creams/ food to take away. There are a tempting selection of gelato on display with a good variety of flavours. I visited twice, the first time I... More

This cafe has a big terrace, and you can get many kinds of coffee, juices and other drinks and dishes on the side here. Such as ice cream, croissants, cake and pancakes. I had a cafe Africain, a cappuccino with Nutella, which was nice (see photo). Street artists will come by to entertain you and ask you for a coin.... More
