I have visited this cafe in Mdina several times over recent months. It offers a haven of peace in what can be a very busy and popular tourist spot, at very reasonable prices and impeccable service - it is almost 'undiscovered'.
It makes an ideal venue for either a quick cup of coffee and cake (the cakes are extremely good, ranging from carrot cake to the apple pie - which I would especially recommend) or a leisurely lunch. Unlike many Maltese cafes serving lunch, the portions are not enormous (leaving room for cake) and are also extremely well prepared - the ravioli is particularly good.
I'd recommend a visit whenever in Mdina, but it's especially opportune after a visit to the priory to look around, or on a Saturday - short concerts are performed at lunchtime every Saturday offering a variety of classical music.
In the colder months, the cafe offers warming soups in a welcoming atmosphere, and in the hot weather of the summer, the stone walls provide a naturally cool environment.
Well worth a trip.
