Located on a recently renovated square, that appears to be the least frequented by smelly motor-bikes, this cafe is great for people watching because you don't have to sit upstairs to get some peace. Drink orders were wrong every time we went, which was three...More

Despite being a little challenging to find (I found it by accident, despite having hunted for it for a few days), this place was worth the effort. It's a relatively quick walk through the maze of souks to reach it and the food is consistently...More

Stopped in for a quick bite after searching for an hour and found the clientele pretty young and hip(I'm older and only wishing I was cool) BUT after seeing the food we stayed and we're glad we did. My only regret was no cold alcohol...More

A nice place where to stop after long walks throughout the narrow streets of the old city of Marrakech. The Cafe des Epices is located on the Place des Epices (Epices square) which is a very interesting part of the Medina. A couple of meters...More

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
