Ice Cream Parlor that is no More


This ice cream parlor in Gueliz has been closed ever since we have lived in Marrakech.
It looks like the sort of place I would have gone too often.
There is something very traditional about the color scheme.



I am also a sucker for handpainted signs on shops.
The things that were once in offer here include ice cream cake and napoleons.
It also says it was a salon du the.
What more could one ask for?

If only time could be turned back, this really looks like a place you and I both would like to hang out.

But it can't possibly be as good as Oliveri, can it?

Yes Elizabeth,
This looks like a good one you missed. Just to have an opportunity to see this building is interesting. Do many people eat ice cream Morocco? Do you eat rose ice cream?
Hope you continue to have a great adventure in the city!

This looks like a fun place to have ice cream or tea.

Ice cream colours have to be one of my favourite colour schemes!

Too bad the salon de the is now close, the hand painting, the colors are speaking about old good times.

Sounds ideal - do you have an alternative to buy ice cream?

Wish I had some Ben and Jerry's Pfish food in the freezer reading that...!

When I first was in Morocco, I was a bit scared of eating the ice cream. Now I love it......it has never made me sick - just a bit tubby
Two good places are "Ice Legend" on Place Djemma ElFna, corner of Prince Moulay Rachid St.
or Cafe Premices on the Place has delicious fresh fruit ice cream also a chocolate with bits of real chocolate in it!
Mmmm........

This shop is (ice)screaming to be taken over! Imagine all the colourful ice-creams it once sold, talking of colour, I forgot to say, your two cats are colour co-ordinated with your tiles. x
