Sit on the terrace for great views to the cost and the cathedral at Mousta. We only had a snack but the setting was great and the menu looked appetizing especially the cakes.

If visiting Mdina, Fontanella is a must! Their chocolate cake was amazing. I also enjoyed their tuna baguette. The view is beautiful, if it's too windy to sit outside there are two glass enclosed seating areas.

Very friendly staff even though it was pretty busy. An amazing view awaits you up on the outdoor seating area. Some of the best cake I've ever tried with spectacular views over Malta. Well worth a strole through the old streets for this gem!

A variety of great cakes. Don’t order one if you’re worried about calories! Stunning views! When you’re done eating, you go down to pay your bill and there is a queue like you’re buying a ticket for a show.

Hi I'm not quite sure if they do, they do some cakes I believe which are gluten free. You can always check through their website though, they have their contact details readily available. Hope this helps
