I go there whenever I want to have a nice coffee or drink in the Medina enjoying the view from the rooftop

Excellent food, the real deal! Food was authentic, the main reason I went is because there are signs for it and the Medina is SO hard to navigate.

We loved our lunch here as it is in a cool part of Marrakesh away from the square but surrounded by nice stores to shop in. The service was slow and they did forget some of the things we ordered. Cash only.

This is one of the more luxurious places to get lunch or some coffee, but worth it. The staff is most kind!

I had a lovely break from the crowds of the souk with a lunch on the rooftop terrace of Cafe Epices. I enjoyed a delicious Kefta sandwich and French fries with a large mineral water. Good food but you can’t beat the view over the...More

Don't miss this precious square: cleaner and prettier than the big one, even though inarguably less entertaining. This cafe is the perfect place to enjoy the view. Tje waiters are not very kind but the food is good.

Excellent lunch on the top floor. Good food, good value and excellent view, so well worth the effort to go all the way up to the terrace. And you can wait for a table on the floor below if it’s full

Cute cafe in the middle of the spice souks. Great food and perfect for a lunch during the day. Kefta sandwich is delicious.

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.
