Cafe culture

Men, not women, meet for a 'cuppa' in Morocco

Rafik feels right at home in his local café enjoying a drink and talking about Morocco’s café culture.  Rafik and his friends enjoy sitting in cafés relaxing, catching up with each other and watching football most weekends.

Cafés are a big part of Moroccan culture.  But unless you are in one of the modern cities such as Casablanca, you will not see groups of women enjoying a mint tea together. Men and boys fill the cafés and coffee shops in Morocco, not women.
