There are plenty of outdoor places to enjoy a coffee, soft drink, mint tea or a sheesha (water pipe). Most popular in the evenings are the tables strewn around place des Martyrs in front of the Hôtel Sabra.

Just south of here near the intersection of ave Hamda Laaouani and ave de la République are two good coffeehouses: Café Belhadj and Café Amar.

Just north of the medina in front of Bab Tunis is the Café Les Soirées de L'Orient.
