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

Simple but tasty sandwiches for 30-40dh. Service is quick and efficient. Great for lunch when taking a stroll in he souk.

Go there for a pause or for lunch. Sit on the terrace under the Sun with their hats. The place is cool and simple at the same time. The food is very good and cheap and people is so nice. Try the sandwich au poulet! The square in which it is placed is amazing.

We had a simple kofta sandwich and a pot of mint tea in this very popular little cafe. It was excellent, although the place has definitely benefitted from TripAdvisor as it was packed! Try to get a seat on the terrace (good views).

Nice hangout. Right in the middle of the action. Great for a cup of coffee(spiced is wonderful) or tea . The employees are very friendly . They let you enjoy the atmosphere. I didn't try the food but it did look good. The owners have a few places in town. All different venues. Looking forward to trying one for lunch.

Café by the spice-square. Good panoramic view (not as good as from the photographic museum though) and nice place for a cup of tea. Friendly and happy.
