Tucked down a little alley in the Fes Medina is an absolute gem… Cafe Clock (luckily there is a sign on the main street – otherwise we would never have found it).
Inside are different seating areas, on various levels, which makes the cafe feel a lot bigger than it is.
We visited on a Saturday evening and it was very quiet, which was lovely for us, but having looked on-line, it seems that it’s usually really busy, so it would probably be best to book if you’re planning on going during peak times.
We had a fantastic table, on the vast roof terrace, overlooking the mosque next door. Our server was British and couldn’t have been more helpful.
We shared the Fes Platter to start, which was a little too spicy for my taste, but Boon gobbled it down. I then went for the Camel Burger, which came with fries, salad and a slightly spicy tomato salsa.
This was the first time I have ever tried camel and it was delicious. Very light and tasty – not at all fatty. I will definitely eat it again if I spot in on a menu somewhere.
Boon went for the Lamb Beldi Burger, which came with fries, salad and a mint and cucumber salsa. He said it was very tasty, but after trying some of my camel burger, said that he wished he’d gone for that instead.
As it is inside the Medina, there is no alcohol available, but there is free wifi and the food is very reasonably priced.
The Cafe Clock has a wonderful atmosphere and is a welcome relief to the crazy that is Fes.
