The café des nattes is a must when you visit Sidi Bou Said. The mint tea with grilled almonds is delicious and the view is breathtaking

The best place to try a traditional mint tea that is served with white almonds. It's a great spot to watch the passing people on the main street and beautiful scenery to the sea.

The perfect place for a mint tea pick-me-up. Here mint tea is still served the traditional way with pinenuts on the top. Great spot to watch the passing parade.

The waiter was very insisting to get a tip but the coffee was ok and the place clearly the center of town, where you will see pass everybody

This is the oldest café in Sidi Bou Said and you should definitely visit it while you're there. Very charming and has a nice view. Tea with almonds and mint leaves is a must - it was perfect!

Last came here back in November and returned here with friends this month as we enjoyed it here last time. There are great views here and I would recommend the Turkish coffee as that is very good here and is around 4 TND.

Nice little cafe with great view of the town. Spoiled unfortunately by the poor coffee and free sweets which turned out not to be free. No need for this rip off attitude. If offered a plate of sweets with your coffee don't eat them or...More

One pays for the view and the experience here and that is why you pay more than you would normally in a local cafe - it’s a typical long-standing tourist attraction and it is what it is The coffee, Turkish (moorish) coffee and mint tea...More

An absolute must when visiting Tunisia! Famous painting by German painter August Macke of the cafe and mosque behind it!

Typical tourist trap where only your maoney matters to the owners... Expensive and fairly average place. Must eb seen once I suppose but be careful when you get the bill. They are not shy to stick a few extras on it!!!!!
