Riad Yima: Cool cafe, delish coffee!

I love coffee.  And I think I have since I was like four years old and my paternal grandpa gave me a coffee and let me put my own sugar in it.  I’m not exactly sure what he was thinking.  In fact I think it had equal amounts sugar and coffee.  But man I loved it.

And still do. Especially when shared with great friends.

So I was so happy to head out with a darling friend to Riad Yima, a new cafe and boutique in the Marrakech medina owned by Hassan Hajjaj, a well-known Moroccan artist.  In fact, he was once called the Andy Warhol of Morocco.

Being a fan of pop culture and art, which defines Hassan Hajjaj’s work,  I was a huge fan of the cafe.  The architecture and decor was so fun.

His work is certainly amazing!  And the cafe is no exception.

The coffee was delish. And also BIG. Like North American sized.

Thumbs up from this coffee addict!

  1. Ever since going to Italy this summer I’ve become addicted to espresso and coffee, but, like four-year-old you, can only tolerate it with an equal ratio of caffeine to sugar. I’ll have to wean myself off the sweetness slowly… This cafe looks amazing. I love the first picture, especially the pillows and the pole-climbing vines.
