Expert review of Old Priory Cafe
This is a delightful place to eat with a small menu of tasty all-day snacks and lunches. I love the mix of ancient and modern here and the real peace of its monastic surroundings.
There are Ftira (Maltese bread rolls), soups (with Maltese bread), cakes and a few well-prepared main meals at lunchtime.
The ceiling is original from the 17th century which is oddly in keeping with the bright white modern café beneath. Clean and fresh with a very calm, relaxed atmosphere, this is a place to drop by for lunch or to rest the legs over a coffee and snack.
Friendly and helpful. You may need to order at the counter.
It's off Mdina’s main street, inside the 17th century Carmelite Priory. The ground floor (where the café is located) is now the very engaging Carmelite Priory Museum while the upper floor is still a small functioning priory. Very peaceful.
Ftira from around 3 euros, and mains from 7-16 euros.
