They were so delicious that we were tempted to order more from the large variety on display. We were very satisfied with both cafe and pastries. We... read more

We stopped here because it is one of the closest cafes near to the bus station. We ordered chicken with barbecue sauce, potatoes and coleslaw salad in a medium sized plate. The portion is really big and it costs 4.5 euros. They heat the salads if you want. The sauce of chicken was very tasty also.

Been at this place twice in 2 hours time. It says a lot. Tiny not very well lighted inside. But it seems very busy. Served by differnt staff in both occasions. Very friendly and polite. Pastizzi is only €.30. Hot and puffy. Cisk beer is a Maltese local. Sitting under the sun with busy traffic shooting at you in all... More

This is round the corner from the bus station in St Francis Square. The coffee was lovely and the cakes delicious, unfortunately the square was so busy when we visited that the fumes from the exhausts made the experience much less enjoyable. Nothing that the cafe can do much about really, but something to be aware of if you have... More

Expected a bit better to be honest. Pastizzi did not taste fresh but the capuccino was quite good. I ll opt for a salad next time i go there most probably.

A little gem just around the corner from the bus station. It's only a street cafe but the service and the cakes are good. Prices are reasonable too which is why it's such a favourite of locals and visitors alike

For a very cheap price, you get a good salad or pasta plate. You can finish up with a delicious dessert and a soft drink, and yet you still have paid less than €10! What better deal can you get elsewhere in Europe?

This small place right in the heart of Victoria is excellent for light snacks. The cake selection is superb making this one of the best spots for a coffee break.

This little corner coffee shop has some of the best pastries and cakes in Gozo and Malta. My sweet tooth is insatiable and I try pastries wherever I go but these are amongst the best in the Maltese islands. It also has a section dedicated to fast food which is on the higher average scale but what also stands out... More

This is close to the bus-station and therefore the place we tend to visit when we have to wait for the bus. It is small, busy and crowded and the toilet isn´t that clean, but service is friendly and quick. Have tried salads, pastries and cakes, tea and wine; everything has been tasty and the prices are good. Seem to... More
