Located on the top of Morocco, looking directly towards the Strait of Gibraltar, Tangier is a city rich in history, stunning architecture, and unforgettable views. While you might be staying in the Medina and visiting the American Legation of Tangier or further west, admiring Cap Spartel, where the Mediterranean and the Atlantic meet, you will certainly need time for a break. So here are the best cafés in town!
Hotel Restaurant, European
This was originally Burton Walter Harris’s house in Tangier, but now it has turned into this extremely exclusive and sophisticated hotel.
The terrace area is gorgeous with a view over the pool, palm trees, and Tangier hills for warmer days, and they also have an indoor bar with a fireplace for colder days. On the menu, you will find coffee, pastries, biscuits, and much more.
Cafe Baba is another historic café in Tangier. Founded in 1943, it is hidden in the Medina.
Everything about it is special. As soon as you step inside, you feel the atmosphere of the 1940s as though the café has stopped in time. The chairs, tables, windows, and walls are quite old, and you can see on the wall all the celebrities that have visited in the past.
It is definitely a place to check out and its been frequented by many popular faces like The Rolling Stones, the kings of Spain and Sweden, and many more.
This is another great restaurant located right outside Cap Spartel, and directly where the Atlantic and the Mediterranean meet. It is truly a wonderful place to visit due to its special location, just like Cafe Hafa.
They serve all kinds of beverages, cakes, and pastries, and also have a restaurant area if you are a little bit more hungry.
