Quick lunch while visiting Valletta. I had a burger and wife had a Ceasar salad. Both were good and tasty. Place is nice and staff is friendly. Thanks.

I'm always wary of the busy places messing up orders or being slow. Not here!!! I ordered a gluten free meal too - Minute steak sandwich with goats cheese. Came with some delicious spicy carrot crisps and aromatic beetroot crisps as an alternative to fries, and a coleslaw accompaniment. Hubby had a chicken baguette with slaw and fries. With our...

I can honestly say that in my 51 years I have never eaten in a more stunning cafe! I initially just looked through the door and was well and truly gobsmacked, I was compelled to go back. The interior is unbelievable. It was very busy but we managed to get a table. There was a good choice of sandwiches, pies... More

This busy café gave us just what we needed - a very reasonably priced but high quality and typically Maltese light lunch, all sitting outside watching the world go by! Highly recommended.

I've been here twice for a burger and a beer. The burger is OK, not super awesome, but OK (definitely WAY better than Eddie's across the street). Staff is nice, courteous and professional. I've had different waiters each time and they've always been great. Tables are relatively clean and they'll bring you a paper tray, clean cutlery and napkins. Single... More

This coffee shop is situated in a nice setting at the lower part of Republic street near the Presidential Palace. Has a Maltese pudding which was outstanding and a coffee, which however was served not too warm. Service a bit slow
