The Café Maure de la Mosquée In Paris

The Café Maure de la Mosquée is a North African cafe and tea room that is located within La Grande Mosquee de Paris and serves wonderful traditional pastries and mint teas.

When you enter the courtyard you will see the lovely cafe terrace with its fig trees which gives shade, and where you can sit down at one of the mosaic topped tables and enjoy a relaxed oriental style atmosphere, also this cafe attracts a wonderfully mixed clientele including tourists and students, which makes for one of the more unusual cafes in Paris.

The Café Maure de la Mosquée In Paris

Even if it is not a very nice day, you can sit inside in a traditional North African setting, with cedar wood from Algeria, green tiles from Morocco and earthenware from Tunisia, plus there are also lots of cushions that you can sit on to while away the time.

However, rather than just having a snack or a pastry, if you go through the place further to the restaurant inside, which is known as the Aux Portes de l'Orient, you will get to see tabletops that are like large copper plates and a beautiful painted ceiling, and this is where you can be served full meals.

Yet the Café Maure de la Mosquée is known as a place to relax and soak up the atmosphere, especially if you have had a tour of the oldest mosque in Paris or have been to Le Hammam, which are the Turkish baths located inside La Grande Mosquee de Paris.

This Paris tea room is like a hidden treasure and yet has become more popular over the years, with its exquisite and exotic setting close to the Jardin des Plantes and the Institut du Monde Arabe, however, if you want tranquillity, then try to avoid a lunchtime or the weekend afternoons.

Café and Restaurant Guide Key Points

The Café Maure de la Mosquée is open from 10am through to 11pm, although at certain times of the day and evening the place turns into more of a restaurant, serving full meals, rather than snacks.

The prices are very reasonable with a pastry costing only around 2€ and the traditional mint tea is also only around 2€, which is rather exceptional for a cafe in Paris.
