We had a really nice meal here one evening. Excellent service and reasonable price. The tables are a little small if you are eating a meal rather than a snack. Nice background music spoilt by the busker across the road with his electric rock guitar.

Went to this cafe twice in same day. Went for a coffee first time . Then went back and had lunch later. Sat out side in the sun each time. Service was good,. Had a club sandwich, it was big enough to share, nicely set out and tasty.

Central location in the heart of Valletta close to the cathedral food was tasty with large portions of local cuisine. Local beer was good and prices very reasonable. Excellent location for people watching as the world drifts by, if you like doing that sort of thing!

Popped in for breakfast during a recent trip to Malta. Was heading to Mdina from Valletta but wanted breakfast first. Wondered around a bit and found this little place. Lovely breakfast, great service, very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
