7 Derb el Magana, Talaa Kbira, Fes, Morocco

Serves meat, vegan options available. Located in the medina of Fes in a nice building. Friendly wait staff. Many choices for vegans. Wi-fi. Atmosphere is a blend of tourists and local Moroccan youth. Special events such as cooking school, concerts, calligraphy classes, and movie night.

fantastic - Edit

Amazing restaurant. Progressive place, very relaxed vibe, great rooftop view, feels a world away from the hustle of the medina. Many vegan options marked on the menu, I ate there three times and had something different and equally tasty each time. Highly recommended.

5 stars!!! - Edit

So delicious!

We ordered the veg tart, side salad, falafel and ras el hanout wedges. All excellent and vegan!

The fresh juice and coffee are also really good.

Lovely views from the rooftop, live music and friendly staff. Didn't really expect to find such great vegan food in Fez.

Great food, staff and atmosphere! - Edit

I went here for dinner on a sunday night when they have the live music. The atmosphere and energy were great! The food was tasty and presented well. Staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. The next day I did the cooking class. Absolutely one of the highlights of my trip.

Pros: Lots of vegan options and they are clearly labeled

Delicious Vegan Moroccan Cuisine - Edit

The Clock Cafe offers clearly marked vegan Moroccan classics.

We tried the Harira soup (chickpea and noodles), the vegetable pastille (stuffed filo pastry) and the Moroccan sweets.

Everything was beautifully presented and tasted amazing.

It's a bit pricier than other places and you'll see a lot of foreigners and tourists hanging out but it's worth the vegan experience and the chilled terrace.

Nice location, not so much for vegans.... - Edit

We went here in October 2013, so I'm pretty late with my reviews!! Plus I wasn't strictly vegan when I went (but vegetarian). I was here with my meat eating boyfriend, who found the non-veg options interesting and tasty.

I had the mezze platter which I think is mostly vegan-lots of olives, salad, hummus etc. For vegetarians, there is a lot more variety than for vegans.

The price is reasonable, but probably on the expensive side for Fes/Morocco. Huge outdoor roof terrace which makes it worth visiting too!

Pros: Lovely setting, Nice atmosphere, Good menu, but not so much for vegans

Cons: Expensive compared to other places, Not much for vegans

Great view from roof terrace with good food - Edit

This café has a European vibe. There are a lot of vegetarian dishes on the menu, but if you're a vegan or lactose-intolerant it's not that easy.
The roof-terrace is one of the most beautiful of Fes. The staff is very friendly and willing to help and explain the dishes. The cheesecake is a real treat (not vegan) if you like your cheesecake a little tart.
The prices are not like the other restaurants in Fes, but are more expensive. So if you're looking for a budget meal, this isn't the place. For me it was worth the price.

Pros: Big roof terrace with lots of space, Right in the medina, Good desserts

Cons: A little bit hard to find, Not very suiteble for vegans

nice atmosphere, limited for vegans - Edit

Cafe clock has a really nice atmosphere, especially if you sit on the roof terasse. As noted before, there are several nice vegetarian dishes (falafel, mezzes, burger, etc.) but few vegan options. The staff is very knowledgable about the dishes and the ingredients, so it's easy to figure something out. I had the moroccan mezze made vegan by subbing the cheese with hummus. Careful, the falafel are not vegan. The portions are ok sized but i expected more from the nice sounding menu. I fou d the taste to be only average and it's slightly overpriced with 50-90 dh per dish. I'd still recommend it for the nice vibe and something different to eat.
Note: they make their own (very very) sweet almond milk, so i asked for a coffee with this and it was really nice. More like a dessert than a coffrr due to the sweetness and creaminess, but still nice.

Not great for vegans - Edit

This restaurant has a nice space and serves food similar to good cafes in Europe and the US. Possibly a nice break if you're tired of vegetable tagine and cous cous! There are lots of vegetarian options. However, they don't understand veganism. We went twice and both times got served food with cheese or yogurt in it, despite long conversations about what we vegans don't eat. Disappointing. It's a pity because it's a nice venue.

Pros: Nice venue, Vegetarian options

Cons: Don't cater well for vegans
