We have been here twice as a family. Once for lunch and once for breakfast tea. Service is good and the food is very reasonably priced. The tea is excellent and the free wifi is a bonus.

We popped in here for brunch on a Sunday & we're not disappointed. It is a traditional cafe where many locals go on a Sunday for an outing to meet friends.

We have been visiting Malta for many years now and it has become a tradition whilst in Valletta to visit Cafe Cordina. We love the ambience, the history and the beautiful decor. The pastries are to die for and i love the way they still manage to keep the old-fashioned, quaint atmosphere which everyone loves. The ice-creams are fabulous too!!

I had a meal in Cafe Cordina, I thought they just did cakes & coffee, how wrong I was, they will also cater any event, great food.

Oldest cafe from Valletta with a very nice location on the square. Coffees a pretty good and you have a lot of choices for something small to eat. In my opinion it were not the best pastizzi I have had on Malta but still nice :) Staff is not always very friendly and not always quick with their service.

When we are in Valletta we always try to visit. In the morning for coffee and one of the great sweet pastries. In the afternoon for a drink and a pie.

We sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed an excellent sandwich followed by some of their cakes. Cordina's is primarily a pastry company so the selection is vast. Good service and a nice view into Valletta from the courtyard.
