La Cantina Essaouira
La Cantina Essaouira is an English owned café located on a sun-kissed square in the Mellah district of Essaouira offering delicious home-cooking. La Cantina has created a following for its burgers which have been voted the “best burgers in North Africa” two years in a row. Other favourite menu items are the lasagne and vegetable stir fry.
Mid-afternoon it’s the perfect place for a break from exploring the medina – for cups of tea (English or herbal) and cake you can’t go wrong with the Banana Bread, Carrot Cake or Scones with Jam and Cream – they are all divine. La Cantina is owned and run by Englishwoman Jan Davey and is located at 66, Rue Boutouil, Mellah, Essaouira.
