“Very nice cafe in Sliema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Staying at a nearby hotel, the Cara's immediately became the natural breakfast venue for us. Cara's is a traditional Maltese café, with a great variety Maltese and Mediterranean specialities.

Some reviews indicate bad service, which we could not confirm, at least not to our experience. Staff was very friendly and service prompt, but what one also should keep in mind is that Caras's is not the typical venue attracting the tourists, but rather attracting the locals, which in our view is a plus.

The pastries, for example the Maltese pastizzi are delicious and for exploring the whole range of sweet and less sweet stuff our stay was not long enough. Cara's is, as I have learned, an "institution" that has been around for a long time and very much recommended!

“Empty tables”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

The cafe next food was full and this was very quiet - usually that tells you something but the food was good at a reasonable price. What you are is what you get - worth a visit

“Great cafe in a central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Perfect for snacks and a coffee, its in a central location so its great to meet on leisure or for a quick business lunch. Parking is an issue though.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

A good location by the tower road. I've been there for many times and the service has always been good. A good place to enjoy a latte and some ice cream, or perharps a burger, if u are hungry :)
