A very nice place with good maroccan food and nice athmosphere. The roof top terrace is cosy and can really be recomended.

This place was so busy at lunch time, that we ventured back there for a breakfast of omelettes and mint tea on the top terrace and it was a lovely place to take in the day.

Stopped at Café des Epices for a quick lunch break - the chicken sandwich and Harira soup were delicious and the view over the market was impressive. Lovely place.

Excellent food, fantastic service and great sense of humour from all the staff 👉🏻 This was by far one of the nicest restaurants to visit during the day. Very modern rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the snowy Atlas Mountains in the distance. Highly recommend.

Description
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
