This patisserie is an excellent choice for breakfast or a sweet afternoon snack. The pastries are delicious (I would recommend the apple tart and the hazelnut pastry) and so is the coffee. Overall an absolute bargain and always worth the visit.

Nice place, but cakes are so-so. Not very sweet, which is ok for me, but also without precise flavor. You don't know, what you eat and it's not very pleasant. It also reminded me polish sweets from PRL, because chocolate wasn't real, it was chocolate-like...More

Surprised how inexpensive the items here are. Usually 25-35 dirham for a box of 4-6 items. Everything we tried tasted good. We tended to visit every day or two to pick up some snacks. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Essaouira.
