We saw this cafe at around 2 p.m. on a Sunday on our way back from a very long walk (San Anton to T'a Qali and back) and thought it looked inviting for a late lunch. It was very full but we managed to find a tiny table for two and squeezed in. Although the place was absolutely heaving, service... More

A total rip off!! Got charged €6. 90 for 2 hot choclate. Half of the glass was even empty as there was panna on top. It was a normal hot choclate. So what do they charge for a thick hot chocolate? What a shame!!!!

Santa Lucia never disappoints! They definitely make the best sweets on the island - be it small bites such as amaretto balls to portion desserts (the bacio cake and cassatella are divine) to ice-creams (santa lucia special based on the traditional maltese ice-cream). Savoury snacks are also served at very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend!

A busy coffee shop with very good food. Perfect place for a light lunch or snack. The ice creams are especially good!

Whenever I feel like pampering myself with some delicious sweet , with my favorite capuccino, where do I head to.......no other place than St. Lucia. Also, when I want to invite friends over to my house, it's St. Lucia that I go to to buy my stuff. I am never disappointed cause no one beats their food-stuff, both sweets and... More

The cafe is really popular and very busy but you can also get take out and walk round to the San Anton gardens for a picnic. There is a big choice though of cakes but they look and taste like they've been made in a factory - so I was a bit surprised by the rave reviews. It's not bad... More
