If all that haggling in the souk has made you hungry, head down to Patisserie de Princes on the rue Bab Agnaou. As one of the best-loved sweet shops and patisserie cafes in Marrakech, it is popular with everyone from local school children to backpackers and wealthy ex-pats. Best of all, if you’ve got a bit hot and bothered it is air-conditioned and serves delicious, cooling milkshakes. There are also lip-smacking eclairs and mille-feuilles, all temptingly laid out in chilled glass cabinets. Or, if you have time to linger, head out to the salon at the back for some ice-cream and mint tea. A welcome retreat and a fascinating glance into Moroccan culture.
