Burgers and beer. One of my favorite combinations. We got the beer quickly, decided that we would eat here aswell. Close to empty terras, you expect some extra service then. Took a while before we got helped ordering food. Food took some time to get there, probably a long walk from the kitchen, it was sort of cold when we... More

Took refuge from the heat of the morning in the shade opposite the cafe. We were served promptly (which was some achievement as the place seemed to be full). Latte and cheesecakes were both lovely. Plus water for 15 Euros- reasonable we thought. Our evening meal experience on Wednesday wasn't as good. I guess every place has its specialities and... More

Located in the very city centre of Valletta, you can enjoy here the best traditional Maltese pastry. Try a traditional cheese cake (not the desert) and judge by yourself!

The food is good and reasonable prices but service is slow inside (not sure if it's any better outside). In a great location in the heart of Valletta near the palace.

The location is just perfect and the local dished special. Whether you want a meal or just a coffee and a cake its the place to go. Try their iced coffee with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They even sell their own brand of local pastries etc. for you to take away.

Despite it's great location, the service was a little lacking in attention. The food is alright although nothing mind blowing.

My wife and I stopped off here for refreshments and a bite to eat. We sat outside which was nice but......... It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to come over and take our order. We ordered 2 drinks and a salami baguette. When this came it was in a very skinny baguette, 2 thin slices of salami ,... More

We had breakfast and lunch here on numerous occasions while staying in Valletta. This cafe is a perfect mix of tradition, luxury and comfort. I highly recommend the coffee and fritja!
