Still a nice place to sit and take a break in Valetta. Not expensive and a little chat with the servers goes a long way. After 40 years since I first went there are still happy to serve a Seven Up or Coke Float. Local pasties I are always good as are more extravagant cakes.

I've given up on this place The service is really slow even when not busy. The cost of items is not always shown: ask for different cone with your ice cream and it's extra.. or are the staff skimming off? There are better places in Valletta

For travelers like to sit outside and inside - perfect place to be. The sweets and pastries are superb.

Took a break from exploring Vittoriosa via Lascaris ferry and enjoyed a nice mid morning savoury snack with good coffee. Too full to eat amazing cake immediately after, I bought takeaway and thanks to Sliema ferry got my cakes into the fridge within 20mins- just as well. Due to delay in handing over cakes as a thankyou to a friend... More

I can not comment on the food, or on being inside, but on two separate occasions it lent a great place to rest up and have a drink or two. With attentive service, and cooled off by fans we were able to relax and partake in excellent people watching. The location is central and convenient to most Valleta attractions.

If you visit Valletta in August the chances are that it will be very busy, and very hot. At midday you will want to have a break in the shade and perhaps a nice snack. In the very centre of Republic Street, just off the main square, you see tables of a cafe' and sit for a little rest. Then... More

I have been here quite a few times. Food is OK but I have to say that service here lacks a lot. This place takes customers for granted I'm afraid.

My daughter and I came here to rest and enjoy the amazing ice cream Cordina do here, to cool down straight after our walk from the Sliema ferry in the summer heat. We found ample available seating outside by a fan, and we were soon greeted by friendly staff with menus. Ordering and delivery of our order I found to... More

We only stopped by for a coffee and some cake. We sat outside by the fan accompanied by the local pigeons. The coffee was good and the cake - ok. We found several less presumptuous locations in Malta with fabulous cakes as good if not better than the ones we had. We asked for some glasses of water to accompany... More
