Nice place for lunch - though very busy

We went here for lunch having wandered through Attard and San Anton. I had an arancina which was very tasty. My husband had a strange sausage roll and a slice of cake. Hi food was very average but it was a nice place to go and have a quick break. Reassuring that a lot of locals use the cafe and... read more

In an island brimming with fabulous cake shops, Santa Lucia set the standard for them all. Not any more. Terribly ordinary last time I went making the creaking service and the jammed in seating no longer a necessary sacrifice while feasting on heavenly delights. Distinctly earthbound now sadly.

We sat down at a table and after around 5 minutes we were asked to order without even a look at the menu. We asked for the soup which was minestrone but is served only till 15:00. Please, be informed the time was 14:59 (no joke) and it was still available. Also we asked for a ricotta qassata which was... More

Food is good, nice for a quick coffee and the food is not over priced. The cakes are amazing and so are the milkshakes and ice cream!

Previously known as the best cafeteria in the vicinity. Recently, their cappuccino's are no longer than good and I've also had some bad experience with some savoury pastry (pastizzi - a Maltese speciality and a qassata - another Maltese speciality). And oh, yes, unjustifiably expensive..... Different story though for their sweets - scrumptiously nice.

One of the best Cafeterias on the island. The food is extremely tasty and always freshly prepared. Their cakes are mouthwatering and the place is amazingly clean and tidy. The staff are so friendly and I recommend it to anyone who will be visiting Malta and the three villages. Every time I visit, I cannot resist leaving with a box... More

The cakes and pastries are to die for! There is a large variety to meet all tastes. The cake portions are very good and for those who are like me and they can't decide which cake they like best, they have bite size cakes so you can take more then one type :) love it!

We ordered outside catering and was impressed by the cleanliness of the trays in which the food was delivered. I have never seen white catering trays so clean from any of the local caterers. Believe me I am not one to be impressed easily. And then the food. wow. The almond and raspberry cake could not be more fresh than... More

Fast service, excellent cakes, good pastries and sandwiches, The only drawbacks I can mention are that the location is not good and most of the times you have to wait for a table.
