Description: In the heart of the Medina and Souks of Marrakech lies the Rahba Kedima spice square, where old women gather to pound henna for traditional tattoos and sell hand knitted hats, while seasoned vendors run the surrounding spice stores. Within this setting is the now famed Cafe des Epices, the perfect meeting place and rest stop from the heat and commotion of the souks. The inexpensive menu is focused on the simple and fresh, offering teas and coffee, freshly made juices, sandwiches, salads and crepes. The design is correspondingly simple: deliberately paired down and basic in order to offer a peaceful resting place after the visual overload of the Souks. Built over 3 floors, the top terrace offers great views over the square and surrounding Medina, the non-smoking 2nd floor salon is a great place to lounge and the ground floor and outdoor tables are fantastic places from which to watch the colourful comings and goings of the spice square market. Open daily from 9am to 10pm

The chicken and Kefta sandwiches are very tasty! Great view if you can get a seat on the roof terrace. Came everyday for late lunch while shopping in the souks.

I must have gone to the wrong cafe, it is what it is just another cafe serving mint tea which any cafe in Morocco should be able to do.Tuna/chicken/Kofte sarnies had better in cooler cafes on the Portobello Road. If you like your views of satellite dishes then great what makes any terrace good is the sun beating down on you which Marrakech does have. Says more about the other 348 restaurants in this section if this comes in @ 32.

It's worth to go for the view. Mint tea excellent like everywhere in Marrakech but food so so. Atmosphere is nice. Mixture of travelers and locals which makes it interesting.

Situated on the north side of the Spice Market this is an excellent place to have a lunchtime snack and watch the world go by. We had cheese sandwiches which were adequate and mint tea which was excellent

Cool bar with nice sunny terrace. After getting lost in the small streets of the souks, this place feels like a lovely oasis. We had a delicious kefta sandwich.
