In the mall Tigne Point: excellent aesthetic, good attention, better coffee and a carrot cake that while not the best in the world, excels. To have a pleasant time, for pleasure or work , in a very friendly atmosphere. Recommended

The place and decor is very pretty but that's as good as it got. Desserts and drinks are way overpriced - the slice of house cake (their very own French Affaire cake), albeit appetizing, was tasteless. The hot chocolate tasted mostly of milk rather than chocolate. The omelette, served on a small appetizer plate, was just plain sad. I've been... More

Although it was a windy afternoon in January, I must say that I have tasted maybe the best cakes on the island. I have spend 10 minutes of deciding what to take, it was difficult because of the really big choice of desserts. Friendly staff, reasonable prices and desserts to die for. Recommended!

Where to feed 6 people when needing mornong tea? French Affaire certainly fits the bill with a great range of patisserie other savoury products to whet the appetite. Staff are friendly and service is very good. Highlyrecommended if you are planninga trip to Sliema.

Helpful staff and nice atmosphere for a nice cup of coffee. The only drawback I found is that it is not very big inside

For a fairly posh shopping mall, French Affaire boasts a super warm and friendly staff, delectable morsels, fresh-cooked breakfasts, and toasty tasty coffees. Everyone is as nice as pie. Kids roam freely, and there's plenty of room between tables inside and out for traffic. Even with loads of people inside, noise is muted. Get a macaron ;)

We've just pop in to take something refreshing to drink. Waiter wasn't be able to recommend something, polite but not helpful. We took smoothies, it was ok but nothing special. Nice localization.
