I go here all the time for hot chocolate, pastries and sandwiches.Located opposite the port and has an upstairs indoor and outdoor area. Not too expensive and the service is basic, usually order before I go upstairs but you can order upstairs too.

Good location, especially for those, who is not often in Male. Close to jetty. Free wifi. Nice food and drinks. We visit time to time, most of the time we are happy with the food quality. Recommended.
