If you visit Mdina you can't miss this place! The best carrot cake ever! Beautiful setting and very inexpensive.

“beautiful view and cake!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This café is based in the gorgeous city of Mdina, the café was recommended to us by our tourist guide at our hotel. If you are in Mdina the tea garden is a must, stop off for a drink and slice of cake. The choice of cake is amazing, all home made and a generous size. The views from the rooftop café are fantastic.

“Couldn't fault it and amazing value too”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited twice in our week in malta. The first time we just had cakes, I say just but boy the size of the portions are huge. The second time we went for lunch the lasagne was great, if I had a criticism and it would be picky it is that the lasagne portion could be smaller and served with a small side salad, my daughter had a sandwich and my son a toastie all were large portions and Lovely, the coffee was really great and the price, well coming from the uk, paying around £20 for lunch for 4 is blooming amazing value. If I lived in malta I am sure it would become a regular lunch stop for my wife and I.

Ps on our second visit it was very busy but the staff were conscious of this and kept strict control over who should be seated next, this despite some very rude and pushy German tourists, so thanks to the staff for their professionalism. I can't recommend this small eatery enough, give it a go if you are disappointed then you must be unlucky

“Nice view but not worth a 2nd visit”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The very first time of our live we got forks with a coffee. After complaining we got tiny spoons which didn't even reach the bottom of the cups. The cakes looks nice, but the taste is not really outstanding.
