Morocco’s cultural and historical capital, Fes is a city of many treasures, from elaborate architecture in its many mosques and madrasas, to the enticing labyrinth that is the old medina. Crucial to all this sightseeing is a filling breakfast or brunch, so stop off at one of the following cafés for a snack and refreshing drink to start the day.


Café Clock

By far one of the best cafés in this huge city, Café Clock boasts three floors, each with a unique charm, and various little hideaways within. Situated in a beautifully decorated, 250 year-old courtyard house, guests can sit alongside the kitchen on the ground floor or, for the most popular seating place, head to the roof terrace.
