a very good place to drink coffee with croissant

There is a very cozy atmosphere there. But in general they got worse than a year ago. Before they cooked English breakfast and omelette, but nowadays they offer only hot bruschetta. Also they have got a lot of tasty cakes and croissants but croissants often end. It’s a very good place to drink... read more

Easy to find, great place to meet up and relax whilst watching the rush around you. Only down side is the difficulty to find parking. But that's the same if you go any where in Sliema. Enjoyed going there and will be back.

Lovely to sit outside in the summer during lunchtime as the location is usually busy and you are opposite the marina. The chill out music they play here make it a great place to relax. The food is pretty good and fresh and the banoffee pie I had here was not only unique it was life changing stuff!!

A busy place on a busy street. We had coffee and sandwiches (HUGE servings). As we came in really hungry, it was nice to lean the service was quick. Toilet door was not working properly, but that's a minor issue, i hope they have it fixed by now.

A lot has been said about the breakfast at Id Cafe, however we also found it an ideal place to stop off at the end of an evening for cocktails and people watching.

Lovely waitress, good coffee and croissant...........not too hot if you try and go 'off-piste'.... toast and marmalade was a no-no, of course that's a very unusual request........don't know quite where the guys behind the counter did their training. If looking for an alternative, avoid the seafront kiosk, by the ferries, they ripped us off!

Yesterday morning I decided to stop and have a cappucino and a croissant. Coffee was very good and the croissant was unbelievably light and very tasty. Coffee and croissant are offered at only Euro 2.80 if taken together at breakfast time.....
