This is the place to come for traditional Maltese treats. Maltese eateries in Sydney are few and far between. This one is basic but clean with a mixed clientele. It seems the most popular thing to have come out of Malta is pastizzi. These are ovals of flaky pastry oozing with various fillings. This cafe prides itself on making some of the best in town. Choose from cheese and spinach, sweet apple or chicken and mushroom from AUD0.50. Or for something more filling, the Maltese ravioli is served with a garlic and tomato sauce.
Tried the new Pastizzi cafe in Newtown, found out they are the old occupiers of The Crown St pastizzi Cafe. Hve to say, dont know whats happenned, but who ever makes the new Pastizzi in Crown St have to be commended. The Pastizzi are absolutely sensational. Professional appearance, texture, taste and still cheaper than the (inferior)ones in Newtown.I cant stay away from this gorgeous little cafe....highly recommended.
I visited The Maltese Cafe in Crown St Darlinghurst and my first impression was that the owners werent about to dolly up the menu by impressing with the decore instead.
The place is famous for Pastizzi and theirs are truly devine. The menu had an assortment of Ricotta, Ricotta & Spinnach, Apple, Beef Curry, Peas, Vegetable Curry, Empanada, Chicken & Vegetables, Chili Con Carne and lentiles. The pastry is to die for, flakey, not oily, light and moorish, quite unlike similar products you would find in the major supermarket chains. You can tell these tasty morcels are hand made with passion. The fillings speak for themselves. Theres a flavour for every nationality made with authentic ingredients and spices that enhance the pastry. All pastizzi are served with an authentic dipping sauce of rich tomato and garlic. The taste experience is quite unlike any other I have had in other cafes.
If your not fussed on decore, then this is the cafe to beat all cafes. It is well worth a look, again and again.
Just have to give a counterpoint to the other reviews here.
The Pastizzis here are OK, but a far cry from how good they used to be when I went here everyday about 5 years ago when studying at COFA nearby. And they were literally half the price then.
Don't get me wrong, I still drop in occasionally because pastizzis are a great tummy filler, but these are nothing special.
Pastizzi quality here rates highly and as a bonus you can also find the local Maltese soft drink Kinnie. Prices have gone up a bit in recent years but they are still cheaper and better than the other Maltese pastizzeria in inner Sydney, found in King Street Newtown.
