Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Café Jubilee, Valletta

Crazy little café/bar/restaurant for cheap and cheerful food and drink throughout the day.

This is a great place, full of character and welcome, and seemingly always open. Drop in for a daytime coffee or evening drink, light snack or bistro-style meal – and useful free WiFi – all very reasonably priced. The Café Jubilee Valletta has won the ‘best place to dine alone’ award from Malta’s Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants for two years running.

Food and drink: 

You can breakfast, lunch and supper here – not to mention enjoy morning coffee, Afternoon Tea and evening drinks (when it turns into a buzzing bar). Food ranges from well-filled wraps and traditional pastizzi (Maltese mini-pasties) to Nana’s homemade cheese ravioli.

Ambience: 

It's very individual: walls papered with old newspapers and hung with wonky posters and random objects including an upside down table and chairs on the ceiling. It's cosy in winter and cool in summer. The clientele is mostly people working in Valletta, business people and lawyers, as well as shoppers and tourists-in-the-know. I find it a very handy place to drop into between appointments in Valletta.

Service: 

Staff are friendly and generally efficient.

Location: 

It's on a typical Valletta Street in the heart of the city surrounded by the sights.

Price advice: 

Mains courses cost 8-10 euros, wraps etc are about half that.

Other useful branches: 

There is another branch at Gzira (209 The Strand, 356 21 337 141) and Gozo (8 Independence Square, Victoria, 356 21 558 921).
