Grand Cafe de la Poste

The food leaves lots to be desired but for atmosphere and energy, Cafe de la Poste is still a really fun place to go for lunch drink or dinner. And Maitre d’Hotel Eric is one of the most charming and gracious ever!

I couldn't resist this one and think it tells a story that is, perhaps, more significant.  The pouf has charm, after all, embroidered and betasseled, and the owner has a generous heart to allow Mr. Cat such a comfy perch.

 Here are your traditional interiors, yet there is nothing very traditional about this charming Marrakchi riad located a few minutes from Place Djemaa el Fna and offering 6 unusual bedrooms and a courtyard filled with flowers and plants.

Part of a new breed of accommodations sprouting like wildflowers after a soaking rain, the look has moved away from the multicolored Moroccan interior, offering a light filled interior that works well in the shaded medina.
