Le Café has nice terrace with view on the market just in front. Rooftop Le Jardin has nice view over the Souhks and market. Not just typical Maghreb food but also some otiginal sandwiches and good coffee!

It was nice, but only seemed quite average considering the high prices. At the top there were water sprays to keep the temperatures a little lower, but when we were there this just made the temperature worse as it felt really humid as well as...More

We enjoyed our visit here! We found the prices reasonable for good food and drinks. It's a very relaxing place for people watching. The sprinklers are very welcome as the roof terrace is a real sun trap and gets very hot! The service wasn't prompt...More

A nice place with good food. Evening terrace is a pleasure too. But.. I went there on the basis that the same person owns this place and the fantastic Nomad. However CDE does not have the space and comfort of Nomad on the terrace. Chairs...More

Been three or four times during a period of four days in early July. Great place for a morning coffee, preferably by 11 when the heat is not intense, and the place is not busy so you can choose the best spots! Many different options...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
