“Sandwiches and coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Its a small hole-in-the-wall type cafe serving a basic menu of a limited breakfast (basically boiled egg and toast) and some sandwiches. Like a previous reviewer I dont understand how a cafe with a four-sandwich menu immediately gets 10 five star reviews, as if it was a major restaurant, but maybe Im missing something. Interior is cave-like but bright and modern; Coffee is good, and our sandwiches were OK but nothing very special.

“A nice lunch, out of the ordinary designer interior!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Like the title of my the review, the food was nice but the menu was limited. The style of the resteraunt/cafe was modern and consequently unlike any other morroccian cafe I have been to. The waitress/chef/potwasher/cleaner (there was only one member of staff in the building) only spoke arabic so....she had the wrong.when the order did come out correct the food was nice but dry. So overall, it was an interesting and enjoyable experiance despite a few minor setbacks!!! :)

“Calm,clean and serving the most divine smoothies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

This is a very restful spot to take a break from the hubbub outside. Yes, you do not get a sense of the atmosphere of the town nor is it the place to people watch, but if you want to have a divine smoothy in a clean, peaceful spot then come here.

“Delicious, friendly, sophisticated and clean: Very nice break in the medina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

It's located meters from Pl. Moulay el Hassan, but in one of the calmest Medina streets, so it's excellent for a break (has free WiFi)
Really outstanding sandwitches and cakes, coffee though could have a choice for non-nespreso lovers as myself.
The unique interior design gives a really fresh atmosphere, and is sparking clean!
The staff were truly frieandly and trip advisors, and suggested us an agenda for the family and also organized the children activities.
Super!

“Amazing food and the best coffee in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2011

Can't recommend this place enough. We happen to stumble upon it and weren't disappointed the staff were so helpful and friendly. The food and coffee were so good we came back for more. They also organised a very last minute quad biking and horse riding which was also great and told us of an amazing breakfast place! Great place could speak more highly of it.
