We popped in on a wet day for lunch. We soon left promptly without ordering simply because one member of staff was particularly rude as she moved some chairs so that we would not get soaked. So I decided they were not getting our trade, especially with so many other nice cafés along that stretch. If you are going to... More

Everything looked very cool from the outside. But! Because of their asian and maltese plates - very oily and tough thing to eat, everyone ended up eating from my vegetarian pizza, which was rather good. My suggestion - if you go there, go for the straight choices, they are not into specialties.

A cafe that me and my family went to quite a lot, when we first moved to mellieha from Ireland in 2011. Nice place for your morning breakfast or just a simple tea or coffee Well priced!

This was the place we chose to eat on our fist night out in Malta, I have to say there was nothing outstanding about the place. Staff were efficient, Prices reasonable and food OK. With a good selection of eateries in the area and if you are after better than average food, I would say try elsewhere.
