Hidden in the middle of the Medina, Café Clock is a funky haven that brings Europe and North Africa together to meet and create this awesome café. During my recent trip to Marrakech, I was lucky enough to go and check Café Clock out and have one of the most delicious veggie lunches (yes, veggie!) I’ve ever had. There’s a bright, high ceilinged ground floor part of the café, as well as an amazing open roof top space (with covered and non-covered parts). The décor was very very cool, there’s no other way to describe it, with mod pictures and mismatched furniture and splashes of bright colour everywhere, I felt very much at home, and want to transport the place back to London!
The staff were super friendly, attentive and quick. The menu was available in both English and French, and even had veggie, vegan and GF options! We went for the falafel, hummus and tabbouleh each, as well as two side salads (the winter salad of roasted vegetables and minted fresh cheese and fig & blue cheese salad with candied walnuts and capers) which were both insane, actually, the entire meal was freaking delicious, I’m thinking that’s the best falafel I’ve ever had! We also had a smoothie each and after lunch we got henna tattoos, we each opted for the same traditional hand henna (we literally just did everything exactly the same all holiday hahaha), the henna artist was lovely and I am sooo in love with my design, I want it to stay forever!
Not only do they offer amazing grub and a fab place to chill, but Café Clock has so much more to offer. There are workshops and cooking classes held there, as well as a Saturday morning yoga class which we 100% would have gone to if we’d have been in the country!
If you’re ever in Marrakech, put this on your list of places to visit.
