After visiting the St. Paul's Anglican Pro-Cathedral, I went in the direction of the port, but a charming signpost below the cathedral read: "The Undercroft Café". The menu displayed in front was enough for me to get in. I was amazed by the simplistic design of the interior. Decorative walls with arches also added a historical touch. It's spacey and the lounging area is also comfortable. In the background a DVD-presentation was playing describing certain history events and significance of the cathedral. I had an espresso, a Caesar chicken-salad, bottle of mineral water and two glasses of Prosecco wine. The second glass really kicked in after lunch ;)

All in all, a very pleasant experience, the staff is amazing. Had a really nice conversation with Sheila and Jules (hopefully the spelling is correct :o).

When I get the chance to revisit Malta, I know for certain where to go first :)

Many thanks again, and hopefully see you soon.

The food offered there is reasonably priced everything is of British setting but the platters offered are mouth watering. The service is excellent and I must say the iced tea is homemade and it is a must for one to taste it once he is at Undercroft Cafe.

We’d been in the Anglican Cathedral ( beautiful, understated Neo Classical place of tranquil beauty) and as it was lashing down we popped in for a drink. Couple of superb made on the premises scones and coffees. All in a spectacularly presented space. Wonderful.

We were recently in Valletta, staying in a rental right around the corner and found this gem. I read reviews and popped in to get a few sandwiches/salad to take away. The food was awesome, we ended up eating the leftovers the next day. I wasn't sure if my husband would like the coronation chicken salad that i brought home, turns out it was the best sandwich he ever had! Glad i asked what the ingredients were, will try to replicate at home. All the previous reviews were right on, thank you for such nice food and a friendly face!
