The Cafe des Epices (Spice Cafe) is a charming inexpensive cafe located on the historic Rahba Kedima square just north of the main Jemma al Fnaa. Historically the Rahba Kedima was the Marrakech slave market, today it is a bustling showcase for a variety of crafts as well as a centre for herbalists and spice sellers.
We like the Cafe des epices as a venue for a light lunch or just as a place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the souks.
Our Marrakech Riads offer the perfect base for you Marrakech City break.
The aptly named Souk Kafe opened in March 2010. Mike and Lucie of Marrakech Riad were the first customers! The Cafe is located at the northern end of the famous Souks at 11 derb Souk Jeldid about 50 metres south from the well known shrine of Sidi Abdelaziz just around the corner from Riad Cinnamon and less than five minutes from Riad Papillon. There is a large straw teapot on the roof terrace which makes Souk Cafe easy to spot from other roof terraces in the central medina.
There are two comfortable lounges as well as a roof terrace with great views. The menu includes moroccan standards like tagine and cous cous served with tea, soft drinks and juices. It is possible to eat well here for less than ten euros.
