The Williamsburg branch of the classic East Village Moroccan cafe. Tagines, couscous, stews, and traditional Moroccan and Israeli are all available. We love the enclosed garden area in the back, which lends a sunny atmosphere to their popular brunch.
“Everything is delicious” at these “popular” Moroccan “standbys” that are especially known for their “unbeatable” brunches; “tight seating” and “long waits” are part of the deal, but “gentle prices” help, and Williamsburg’s “cute indoor garden” is especially “charming.”
It’s a casual place serving Moroccan/Israeli food, although they do a more-or-less standard breakfast and brunch. Weekends get slammed, however, so expect a wait for brunch and dinner. And try to sit in the greenhouse-like area out back. It’s a good place to eat a chicken stew with couscous.
