“Fabulous place to wait for Big Bang!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

Stopped off here for tea and a cheese (ricotta) pastry while waiting for the cannon to go off at noon. Not only was it good value but the tea and the pastry were very good.
Surrounded by locals doing the same. Always a good sign!

“Gone downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

I've visited this kiosk for many years as it has always provided good value in one of the best locations in Valletta. However, last week I found that prices were higher and the Tuna baguette I bought was stale and had a soggy unpleasant filling that tasted more like boiled onion. It was pre-packed and obviously bought in from elsewhere. The apple juice was bright green and came in 500ml bottles - the ingredients showed it contained only 10% apple juice. You can get much better in Valletta for less.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

always start our visit to Valletta with a coffee in the gardens, there have coffee is no dearer than in the centre, cakes and savory pasty,s are very cheap. can always spend an hour or so watching the boats in the grand harbour, and just enjoying the view.

“Fine coffee, terrific view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

If you are in Valletta then don't miss visiting the Upper Barrakka Gardens, and stop for a coffee at the kiosk/cafe. The coffee was particularly good (I had a long chat with the boss about how to make the best americano) and the views are terrific. The cat collective is also quite impressive.
