Welcome to Cafe Clock

Cafe Clock offers cultural exploration in the heart of Fez’s ancient Medina.

After restoring a 250-year old courtyard house, the Clock Crew have brought to Fez a cultural zone that we are all desperate to set our watches to. Musicians, thinkers, performers, lovers, restorers, teachers, travelers–national and international–are walking onto our zellij carpet and playing out their tempos.

It’s not just about the conversation piece camel burger or Tariq’s Taza style cheesecake that gets you (re)returning to Café Clock (but quite easily could be); it’s perching on revamped chairs picked up in junk souqs, it’s free wi-fi, it’s listening to Moroccan hip hop followed by belly dancing grooves, it’s swapping numbers with your neighbouring coffee drinker as you’re a lute player and he’s a djembe drummer and let’s jam sometime.

The library, the terrace, the bar, the red room, the courtyard, the balcony – Café Clock oozes spaces to retreat, meet, mingle, dance, romanticise in.

We are open every day of the week. Breakfast is served daily from 9am, last orders for dinner by 10:00pm (groups above 6 please reserve in advance). Vegetarians and vegans are encouraged to delight in menu offerings created to please their palates. We love seasonal, we love local, and we love traditional. We use what excites us from the neighbouring markets.

Find us just 200m down from Bab Boujloud gate. Immediately after the display of dissections in the butchers’ guzzar on Talaa Kabir, where on the right the 14th century Bouanania Medersa stands proud, up on the left are the restored remains of the clypsydra, Morocco’s only water clock.  Below is slimline Derb el Magana, where deep inside Cafe Clock nestles herself from the chaos.

Cafe Clock is a welcomed pause from the play inside Fez’ medieval capsule.  Come breathe your life into the walls and let our cedar beams oil themselves with your histories.
