Top choice cafe in Medina

There's something a bit special about Abdullah's nook-in-the-wall tea shop, and it's not just the owner's beaming smile and mosaic tile-decorated counter piled high with fresh herbs to pop in your brew. Abdullah swears by the water he uses to make his teas (featuring not just mint, but also herbs such as absinthe): it comes straight from the holy Kairaouine complex. A blessed infusion, indeed.

To find him, take the street off Place Seffarine opposite Cremarie La Place until you're about halfway down, where a few of Abdullah's seats spill out onto the street.
