A1 Cafe and Confectionery ??

The last time I recommended this place for a snack or one of their delicious cakes I was informed that it was closed .

Whether this was for refurbishment or permanent I do not know.

This popular place is in Gzira and right on the corner where the road forks with the right one being Testerferata Street.

If anybody now in Malta is round that area could they perhaps let me know if it has reopened ,

It was always one of my favourite eating places .

Many many thanks in advance .

That really is a shame .

The old brothers who ran the place for years have probably retired.

I had some great meals there , It was always packed with Maltese .

Shall have a beer to get over my sadness !!

Yes Graham - have the beer and I'll have one as well just so as you are not drinking alone. Unfortunately, so many of these old Maltese family businesses have disappeared - even the old 'Bus Stop' kiosk, not a million miles from the A! is now the Bus Stop Lounge - no more 50c coffees in a chipped mug sitting with the workers from the Manoel yards! All €3 Mochalockafrappachinno lattes now.

I used to often stop at that kiosk for a coffee or coca cola when very hot.

Hope the Olympic Bar doesn`t go the same way.

The loss of Dick's Bar was hard to take for me. I too hope the Olympic in Mosta doesn't go the same way.
