Concierge.com's insider take:
This cool little café with molded plastic furniture, gleaming terrazzo floors, and a rotating gallery of works by local artists is Marrakesh at its most downtown. It occupies a prime spot on Rue de la Liberté (home to some of the city's smartest boutiques and antiques dealers), and peaks at lunchtime, when the people who actually work in booming Marrakesharchitects, real estate agents, developersdo lunch or take meetings here. The food is simple, inexpensive, and very French: salades niçoises, croques monsieurs, tartes aux citron. The roof terrace is the place to be on sunny winter daysbut for people-watching, snag a table by the front windows downstairs or on the sidewalk. The name, by the way, is a play on Marrakesh.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 7 am to midnight.
