Undoubtedly, Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters is the go-to coffee shop for coffee aficionado with a discerning taste.

Manouche is a self-described “melody of Maltese passion and exceptional French baking.” And it’s easy to see why. Their bakery and bistro uses fresh Maltese ingredients to recreate French classics with a modern twist. In keeping with the spirit of excellence, Manouche’s coffee is nothing short of high quality. 

Jalie’s Coffee, Cakes & Bakes – Attard

Jalie’s is the perfect combination of traditional English afternoon tea culture and Mediterranean dolce vita lifestyle. It’s the perfect place to meet for coffee, a chat and a delicious piece of cake. And with “coffee” in their name, Jalie’s coffee definitely lives up to expectations.

As a result, it definitely deserves to be in the “best coffee in Malta” list.
