The place looks like a working man's cafe. It may be a bit off-putting but don't be. Wonderful meals can come out of places like this and the owner is friendly.

No catering to tourists here - as far as I know authentic Moroccan. The chef-owner- bottlewasher has a nice touch. And incredibly cheap.
I had a harira soup, small chopped tomato salad, and chicken couscous, all for $14 total including taxes, and everything was very good.

I want to mention the chicken couscous in particular. An enormous mound of couscous, a generous topping of chick peas, raisins and cooked onion (beautiful, a bit sweet, chicken leg with back.
Nicely but gently spiced. I searched out every morsel on the plate. Share it the first time; if you want to move on to another dish.

A short menu, and not everything on the menu is available. That's good- Moroccan cooking doesn't do well a s left overs.

The chef-owner-bottlewasher tells me that he cooks in the style of Fez.

Try beating this meal in interest, quality and price!
