“Worth a 15-minute stop for the history and tea”
Review of Cafe Baba

Cafe Baba
Ranked #49 of 249 Restaurants in Tangier
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is smoky, old, funky, small, and slightly edgy, Somewhat difficult to find at 1 rue Sidi-Hosni - expats call it the coolest spot in the Kasbah. Our private guide Aziz has this as a regular stop on his walk through the medina.

The cafe has attracted foreign dignitaries, rock stars, aristocrats, and artists since it opened in 1943. You can shadow the kif-smoking days of the Rolling Stones and the Beat generation of William Burroughs and Timothy Leary - photo of Keith Richards, kif-pipe in hand is easily found on the grimy walls.

Drop in for a tea, take a few pics, and chat with its owner, Abdul, who as a teenager served Keith Richards and heiress Barbara Hutton between her rooftop extravaganzas across the street. Kofi Annan passed by recently, his photo on the wall next to the Princess of Greece.
