“Beautiful looking cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Never had a cake there (diets!) but they look out of this world! Worth coming just to look at! A French patisserie in Malta is a wonderful thing! Downside is you also get poor service from time to time, waiting to get served but think they are working on that. The baguettes are unfault-able! A good place for lunch whilst sitting outside in the sun.

“Nice place for a coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

A pretty nice place to enjoy your coffee. Part of "The Point" mall in Sliema. The cafe has a french theme and is a bit different than others cafes here in Malta.

Reasonable prices.

“Best pistacchio cake ever tasted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

By far one of the best. The coffee is great and the tea is served in cute whittington cups. The staff do their job in a very professional manner. We will keep on visiting for sure.

“Good coffee, tempting cakes and croissants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

This is a busy French-themed café in a square on the roof of the Point shopping centre in Sliema. The atmosphere is very smart and the room was nearly full on a wet day in March. The coffee is very good and the choice of patisserie and cakes (particularly chocolate ones) is very tempting. There are omelettes available and the coffee prices are surprisingly reasonable in a development of expensive penthouse style flats.

“Quick coffee in a French ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

All we wanted was a quick coffee but we ended up falling for the cakes too. Sweet place with quirky but very tasteful design inside.

Only reason I'd want to live in those apartments, is to have French Affaire at my doorstep every day.
