“Great Place For Lunch”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

During a holiday in Malta I visited this restaurant three times.
First thought, it's the Maltese equivalent of Krispy Kreme? Not at all.
At this restaurant you can have a crispy baguette or roll, with various fillings.
They have a deal, where for around 5 euros you can have a filled roll, a drink, and a doughnut.
The rolls and doughnuts are freshly made, in fact I didn't notice at first but you can see them being made at the back. I can personally recommend the orange or lemon doughnuts.
The seating is doughnut shaped seating, so if there's a group of you you can sit in a circle around a small table.
Service was excellent, all the staff were very friendly.
It's very close to the bus stop as well, so it's worth hopping off the number 12 for this.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were told the donuts where to die for but I can honestly say the donuts in the bakery next door were as good as slightly cheaper. The coffee was ok but I have tasted better. The good things are the staff are friendly and it is nice to sit outside in the sunshine with friends and kids.

Because fixing my car at a garage nearby took longer than expected, I spent almost a whole day at the Donut Factory. The good food (I had a donut for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch), friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere made the wait definitely more bearable. Thanks!

“Excellent lunch. Great value for money”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Brilliant. Delicious sandwich, scrummy doughnut and a drink all for just over 5 Euros. Everything was very fresh and crammed with filling.
My grandchildren were given a little doughnut to nibble when we arrived and a free chocolate muffin for Halloween when we left! Needless to say they thought the place was wonderful.
Well worth a visit- and enjoy

“Possibly the best doughnuts in the world”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We went to the new place just opened in Sliema. We ended up going there every day to get the fresh berries doughnut before they run out.

#1 place doughnut - fresh raspberry and cream
#2 place doughnut - blubbery and cream

worth the detour!
