Located in a fancy area of Gueliz, this quaint little restaurant is a go to spot for people wanting to stop in for a cheap bite at all times of the day. The restaurant is a family business that three brothers run and they seem to be doing a great job at keeping locals happy.
The inside is kind of funky and has an eclectic mix of colorful couches and chairs. While I was there, jazz and downtempo tracks played in the background, helping to set the vibe. There are also a few pieces of comic art around the walls, but it seemed like it could use a bit more thought and design. It certainly has a lot of potential as it is, and a few large paintings or murals could give it the look its going for.
The cafe specializes in all day breakfast such as omelettes and pancakes, but considering it was after lunch, I wasn’t really in the mood. Fortunately, there is a wide assortment of items on the menu that could easily satisfy a large group of people. I tried to order a pizza, but apparently they weren’t serving them yet. Instead, I decided to meet my fate in the middle and go half breakfast/half lunch with a country burger that came with a fried egg, mushrooms, onions, ham and cheese. It was juicy, delicious, and sloppy in a good way where you find yourself trying to hold in all of the delicious ingredients. It came with a delicious house made cole slaw with purple cabbage and carrot. I could definitely taste the Moroccan influence in terms of spices, and it was actually a bit better than most slaws I’ve tasted.
Still feeling a bit hungry, I decided to nibble on a tomato and mozzarella salad. The mozz was generous and thick, and the olive oil was of course excellent, as is almost all olive oil in Morocco. However, the tomatoes were a bit grainy and didn’t seem to be that fresh. To top all of that food off, I went with a small apple crumble for dessert. The taste was decent, but the crumble part didn’t seem to have that much crunchiness to it.
The service was super nice the entire time and one of the owners joked around with me a bit between serving other tables.
It’s not somewhere I would go for a fancy dinner, but if you are looking for a quick bite on a budget, it makes for one of the best options in the area.
