Café La Muraille: Old World Café with drinks and snacks
This place between the Medina/Djama El Fnaa and the new town in Gueliz is popular with westerners. Here, light meals like sandwiches are served, but most customers come for drinks anyway. As this place has a license to sell alcohol, you will usually see groups of westerners over draft Flag beer or Moroccan wine. Of course, also alcohol-free beverages like coffee and juices are popular. The view is not really beautiful (a dull part of Avenue Mohammed V), but its strategically good location between new and old town makes it good. The place seemed to be a former Asian restaurant, but shows little to no sign of Asian decoration any more. I am not sure, if there was a different menu on the left hand side if the restaurant which was closed off at the time of my visit.
Kudos to the waiter – he got the right amount of friendliness and was not intrusive or annoying at all but really sympathetic. Unlike at places at Djama El Fnaa, the offered snacks (olives and mixed pickles) are for free!
Narwama: Good Fushion Thai~Moroccan
We had eaten street foods for several days and have to admit that the foods were starting to all taste the same and we were struggling for something unique. Also, the noise of the streets and/or the busy cafes can be a bit overwhelming at times.
That's when we found the inner courtyard at Narwama. The Moroccan~Thai fushion restaurant is set back in the quiet courtyard near the central market areas. The tables are set with white linens and there is a properly themed contemporary oriental music playing softly. The open air courtyard has a fountain that has both tumbling water, but also a live flame.
It may be a pricier than the street and slightly more than other cafes, but the food was wonderful and the overall experience well worth it.
Favorite Dish: After eating tagines for days on end, I was skeptical that we'd find one that surpassed our previous experiences, but we did. The pear mutton tagine was fantastic.
The couscous and Thai noodles were also very good. If you care for wine, they do serve but prices are a bit high.Related to:

Patisserie near Hotel du Pacha
Breakfast wasn't included at our hotel so we te out most days. We found a great patisserie on the same street as our hotel where we had Moroccan pancakes, croissant and pain au chocolate. In true Moroccan style our tea and coffee were delivered from a different cafe or bar further down the street!
