Henna Cafe

Cafe in Mouassine & Bab Doukkala

Tea, coffee, salad, henna tattoo, Darija class…they're all on the menu at this funky cafe, where a local nquasha (henna artist) draws intricate designs on hands and feet and you can munch on felafel platters and khleer (cured lamb) sandwiches on the rooftop terrace. All profits go to local residents in need.

Prices for henna tattoos start at Dh50 for a small design and range up to Dh500. Only organic brown henna is used at the cafe; the catalogue of designs has been donated by top henna artists from around the world.

The cafe runs education programs for locals and is always looking for volunteers willing to teach French, German and English classes. Check their website for details.
