For many years we have always had to visit Caffe Cordina and maybe we still will. But it has lost its unique attraction and quality. Yes you can get coffee, cakes, ice-cream and meals but we found the caffe not a place to relax but a place we wanted to get out of as quickly as possible. Our latte was... More

Amazing old decorated building. Very well kept in pristine condition. Coffee, cakes, ice-cream - simply amazing. Traditional sweets during Easter and Carnival are also delicious. Must try this location when you're in our great capital city.

Caffe Cordina is the one place that I never want to miss when I visit Malta but in recent times it has lost the sheen which I remember from years gone by. The building is still as beautiful as ever but the food appears has evolved to satisfy the needs of the modern tourist - fast and large ! The... More

You'll find all Malta there: lawyers, politicians, business people. A good coffee or drink and typical Maltese delicacies. Unfortunately, the wonderful Maltese 'pastizzi' are no longer what they used to be.

Had high hopes as I had heard much about this place, unfortunately major reconstruction work was happening in the main square (not caffe cordina's fault but still breakfast to the sound of a pneumatic drill). We tried the Arancini which sadly was more quantity than quality, with the slightly hardened outer shell revealing that it had likely not been prepared... More

We had coffee and pastry there on the 31st of December. The place is beautiful and the atmosphere was joyful. The cakes were a bit too heavy for our taste, but it was an enjoyable and memorable experience on the last day of the year. Special thanks to the staff for the super-friendly and efficient service, despite the rush. The... More

We stopped mid-afternoon and had sandwich and a couple pastizz. I really enjoyed the cheese one. The beef and pea was a bit light on filling. Both very flaky. And cheap eats. They have more extensive food, but we were in for a quick snack

Visiting in January the outside tables are for the hardy only. We sat by the bar/servery underneath the beutifully painted arched ceiling. Service was very friendly, efficient and we never felt rushed. The cakes are superb. High quality in everything they do.
