Very cosy café in a quiet street in the busy area of Gueliz. The only downside (or even better upside depending on what you like) is that people smoke in the café. But in a way it is part of its charm :-)

It's above a bookshop but the entrance is hidden around the back. Happy hour from 6pm to 8pm - 1/2 litre of beer was 400 dirhams. A chilled out little place and we really enjoyed it there.

Great bar, friendly staff, excellent food...and they show a bit of live sport (including rugby) from time to time. Definitely worth a visit.
