A Paris back street cafe of the 1950s and 60s. Atmospheric, always busy and bustling, Casablanca eat your heart out! Foods quite good and coffee is excellent. Nice quiet balcony area upstairs - cool, shaded and quiet. A must visit when in the Cathedral district!

Food was just terrible. We were just so hungry that we tried to eat at least something and felt bad afterwards. One of us didn't get what he ordered and waiter just laughed for that. Even the toast was not toasted and bottle water was luke warm. Don't go there.

We ordered vegetarian sandwich with tofu but sandwich came without tofu. We told this to waiter and he did nothing but laughed to us with other waiters. Vietnamese coffee was normal coffee. Other portions we ordered were tastless. You will be disappointed.

Like others, we walked in after perusing the menu and noticing the people inside. Yes, the cafe is popular with cigarette smokers, most of whom were Vietnamese, meeting for coffee. It was very dark inside, we had difficulty reading the menus. The food was just okay. We ordered a Club Sandwich with french fries and a Nasi Goreng Fried Rice... More

We had passed the café a few times, and it looked very appealing from the outside, like a colonial heritage place. Eventually we went for refreshments. The staff were pleasant enough and with reasonable English, but were preoccupied with their own affairs - phones, talking to colleagues etc. We ordered fresh veggie spring rolls and a papaya chicken salad. Both... More

Had high expectations - faded old charming building, friendly staff. But smoking was encouraged indoors, and very watery coffee taste.

Went here because it was recommended by our hotel, but walked straight out after going inside. Had a bad smell and was very dark and uninviting. With many other cafes around I wouldn't recommend this place. We left and went to another cafe without ordering anything.

My husband spent most of our trip in search of a satisfactory cup of coffee, and unfortunately didn't find it here. On the plus side I had a delicious choc and mint frozen drink, and it is one of the few places we found with any air-con. So depends how fussy you are about your coffee but I would happily... More

I came back to Moca Cafe after almost one year when I had an appointment with my friends. They still does the same way. Fusion menu was just so so but I just came for the drink, nicely, atmosphere and great coffee.

I wrote a review on Moca last year that was not so flattering. I have been back a few times & I do quite like the atmosphere now & the decor. I have also tried the beef fried noodles which were pretty good. Hence the updated review & better rating.
