There is a long tradition of decorating Berber furniture with painted patterns. In respect of islamic the patterns are geometric shapes that do not depict living things.

This delightful litte table sits in the Essaouira Suite at Riad Cinnamon.  The decor in our Marrakech Riads is carefully selected to be reflect local tradition.

Just a few doors south of the well known Cafe Arabe at 180 Rue Mouassine is a pleasant and inexpensive cafe serving tea and simple foods at lunch time and throughout the afternoon.  A group of Marrakech ‘water sellers’ live upstairs, you might catch a glimpse of them slipping out in their brightly coloured traditional costumes.

Styled as the Cafe Berber it is has traditional Berber stools and warm Berber hospitality. If you have visited and enjoyed the Cafe Berber add a comment below and share your experiences with others.
