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!
