Cafe des Epices is rightly a Marrakech legend. It is a fabulous location to people watch and see the comings and goings of the market. The service is very quick and the prices very reasonable. Their mint tea is definitely up there with the best in the city too!

Just stopped off here for a cold drink (fresh juice) and to rest. The man serving us was so so friendly and the best service from a waiter in Marrakesh. He helped us with a free map and generally just wanted a friendly chat. I am a bit gutted we didn't try the food but looked perfect for a casual... More

A great little place to stop off after a look around the maze of Souqs. We sat on the terrace and basked in the sun. Lovely.

Some of the best food we've eaten in Marrakesh. Average prices yet top quality food. It's a great place to hang out, read a book, catch up with other travellers or simply look out on the market and watch the world go by. Great ambience, split over 3 levels with a terrace at the top. It's very trendy and will... More

This is a good spot to have a bite, rest a bit and catch your breath. The food is fine; the point though is just to re-group. Great picture-taking opportunities of the market below. I think they have a sister restaurant across the market ... it's actually quieter and the food much better!

Have a fresh juice (from orange to avocado-date-beetroot) in the roof patio when you need a break. They also have great fresh salads when you're tired of heavily oiled Moroccan 'salads'. On warm and sunny days stay away from the middle floor with the glass windows overlooking the plaza as it gets really hot with the sun. A nice spot... More

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
