Bougainvillea is an unpretentious café in Marrakech’s busy Mouassine part of the souk, not too far from Café Arabe and Terrace des Epices. Bougainvillea Cafe’s distinctive purple and white façade lead to a kitsch riad-style courtyard, with a wall fountain down one side, lots of the eponymous foliage and a slew of chairs and mosaic tables. It has a traditional, rather than an upmarket ambience, which is reflected in the simple menu – sandwiches, tagines, couscous and some hot and cold soft drinks (no alcohol). But the portions are big, tasty and cheap, and when it’s not too packed with souk tourists it can be a pleasant place to enjoy a lunch or mint tea and take the weight off your feet. If it does look busy, check the salons arranged around the courtyard.
