I have just recently started my life as a digital nomad and am getting to know the work in cafés, coworking spaces and from basically anywhere life. I have always loved the flexibility and a great coffee and some café noise with my work. Even when I here in Malta I sometimes choose a nice café over my workstation at home. Since it can be tricky to find the best spot with great internet, taste coffee, and good food. I created a list of my favorite cafés for remote working in Malta
Als,o I am happy about any tips so just feel free to place the suggestions in the comments.
But for now here are 5 amazing café for working on your laptop in Malta.
Costa Coffee Spinola Bay Remote Work Hotspot
I know, I am usually not the biggest of coffee chains either, but hear me out. Costa Coffee has a great location right in Spinola Bay in St. Julians and from your seat in the upper level of the café you can overlook the bay while working. The place is made for remote work and studying and they do not mind if you sit there for a couple of hours. I once made it my office for almost 8 hours. Usually, the internet connection is working great as well. There are other Costas in Marsaxlokk and Valetta but the one in St. Julians is the most comfortable one in my opinion.
Coffees start at around 2€ and the best for quiet working time is around 9 until the afternoon.
You can find Costa here:
Spinola Bay, San Ġiljan
Mint – Homemade treats with your remote work
Mint is one of my favorite places in the area. The owners treat it with love and you have fresh and new dishes every day. There are spaces to sit down with your laptop, have a cup of coffee, juice or whatever you crave from the daily options. The only thing here is that the wifi sometimes disconnects and it is not very stable in the outside area of the café. Food-wise it is, however, one of my top choices and they have plenty of vegetarian options as well. They open from 8 am until 4 pm from Monday to Friday. Just be aware that it can get very busy during lunch hours so you might want to come before or after.
A cappuccino is around 2€ here and food stars at around 3€.
You can find Mint here:
30/39 Luzio Junction, Stella Maris Street, Sliema SLM 1741 – Malta
Fellini- Best for Happy Hour work sessions or a break in Valletta
There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in Valletta but not all of them are suitable for laptop work. Fellini is a nice spot dedicated to the Italian movie director, that comes with a comfortable space to work from. The staff is friendly and it is a great place to sit down in between exploring and get some work done while sipping an Aperol Spritz or some coffee. They also offer sandwiches and other tasty snacks. The Wifi works well, so you will not have to worry about interruptions. They are open from 9 am until 11 pm and never get super crowded as the place is quite big.
A sandwich is around 5€ and the Aperol Spritz is around 6€.
You can find Fellini here: 120 Archbishop St, Valletta
Seaview Café remote work meets stunning views
One of the perks of working remotely is that you can choose your working environment. So why not pick the café with the best view for your remote working in Malta. The Seaview café in Mellieha is perfect for that. You can set up your laptop overlooking the countryside and Mellieha Bay. On a sunny day, you can get a glimpse at Malta’s sister island Gozo as well. The place comfortable and they have a big selection of drinks and food. Also, the wifi is working well most of the time but there might be some interruptions. The place is great at any time of the day no matter if you are looking for drinks, lunch or a cup of coffee. The café opens from 9 am until 11 pm.

Books and Cups – have a read in your breaks (closed)
This small café is a real hidden gem in Gzira. The cozy café also has a nice selection of books and it is not just a quiet spot for remote workers, but a nice place to read a new book. The wifi is quite reliable and the coffee is good. The sign can be missed easily which makes it a great quiet spot for work and reads. They also offer lunch options and some sweet treats.
The cappuccino is about 1,50. The café opens from 9 am until 7 pm during the week and on afternoons on Saturday.
You can find Books and Cups here: Gzira Road in Gzira (just past Manoel Island)
There are still some places I have to try and I will expand this list very soon. Places like Emma’s Kitchen are great spots as well. Enjoy your cup of coffee and wish you a productive workday until then. Enjoy those cafés for remote working in Malta. More are coming soon!
