Café the Paris stands still in tie. Great to take a seat on the terras and watch the city go by at the end off the day. But also a great to start with breakfast and start your tour through Tanger.

This is one of the oldest cafes in Tangier. It is located near to the French consulate in the middle of the city. The view is nice if you stay outside. The drinks are ok. Other than that, it's just a cafe where some tourists mingle with the locals.

This the domain of the coffee sipping, contemplating, chess playing older men of Tangier. There aren't many local women there, meaning it takes a little courage to walk in and sit down as a tourist, but once you're in you can make your home there for hours.

We just had to visit this cafe with all its history. Live yourself into a james bond or jason bourne movie and just watch the traffic and people go by. Very friendly and welcoming staff and inexpensive coffee. Highly recommend!

We visited this cafe more to experience the history of it. It holds a rather interesting history if you are familiar with international espionage. If you are just looking for a nice place to have some tea or coffee, it also serves this purpose well. Sitting outside offers a nice vantage point to people watch, but if the weather is... More

a great place to meet people as its well known by taxis, and actually on a main road so good access . A remnant of French colonialism, next to french embassy and cultural center.

We were taken here by a friend who lives in Tangiers and enjoyed the atmosphere and décor. I loved their mint tea. Well worth a visit just to watch the world go by.
