Respond to Review of CLOSED: Marrakesh Cafe
Review: Decided to give this place a whirl after seeing it Happy Cow. I had no idea it was the 'sister' to the amazing Tel Aviv vegetarian cafe on Ul. Poznanska a mile or so away until it clicked when I saw the menu and the branding. The menu here is actually a bit cheaper than that at Tel Aviv which must have something to do with the location. Marrakesh is located in North Africa in Morocco? Well no it's actually in the Millennium Plaza shopping centre on the corner of Al. Jerozolimskie and Towarowa near the Sobieski hotel. Not the greatest of settings perhaps but the place itself is simply gorgeous with ornate decor and plush rustic and moorish furnishings. There are even shisha pipes on the tables and it just feels so welcoming and exciting. The food is Moroccan and Middle Eastern themed with hummus, pitta breads and mezze dishes playing a big role. There are speciality moroccan sandwiches, wraps and dishes such as the Lafa, Kofta Kebab and Tagine. The vegan options are fabulous particularly in the mezze department, where a visit would not be complete without trying the sublime vine leaves. At night this place is so charming with its' dim lighting and rustic atmosphere. During the day it's perfect for a coffee and a delicious buffet lunch.
