I love Breakfast Food and I love booze, so of course, Brunch is the best of both worlds.

What is brunch? Brunch is the ultimate guilty pleasure, allowing for a lazy weekend. Brunch is normally served around 12 pm, in between (or instead of) breakfast and lunch. The best brunch restaurants will have a variety of scrumptious dishes and drinks to choose from and share.

Going for brunch in Malta is a perfect weekend or public holiday activity for the spring and summertime. Sit outside and enjoy refreshing drinks and delicious food to start the day.

Top 8 Spots for Brunch in Malta

Before jumping into a list, I have to give a disclaimer that most of the restaurants mentioned are in St Julians. This is simply because the St Julians area is where I have had the most (and best) brunches during my years in Malta. If you have any good recommendations, I would love to expand my horizon a bit with new locations too!

Malta Boozy Brunch

1. Kingsway Bar & Cafe, Valletta

Starting off strong, Kingsway is currently my favourite brunch spot in Malta. I have always loved Kingsway and it became extra special after my fiancé and I had our champagne there after we got engaged. But out of all the food I have tried here, the brunch is number one.

Kingsway Brunch Details
  • Where: 57 Republic St, Valletta
  • Brunch Hours: Monday to Sunday until 4 pm
  • Contact: 2703 7720
  • Brunch menu

At Kingsway, brunch is served until 4 pm. They have a brunch a la carte menu with 7 different dishes including smashed avocado toast and English muffin with beef brisket. You can either order the dish of your choice (for about €10 each) and drinks on the side, or opt for the Boozy Brunch deal.

With the Boozy Brunch, you will get a selection of tapas to share, one main brunch item, and 2 hours of free-flowing drinks for €35 per person. What I really loved about this deal is that you can switch between different drinks as you don’t have to pick one and stick with it. Drinks include beer, prosecco, mimosa, aperol & wine spritzers.

The selection is great, making this easily the best bottomless brunch Malta.

Last time I went for the dish “The Squire” which is an absolutely amazing combination of chorizo, asparagus, creamed corn, fried egg and bread.

€35 (with drinks)

2. Hammett’s Gastro Bar, Sliema

Hammett’s is a classy and modern gastro bar located along the Sliema seafront. With a nice outside terrace and a large inside seating area, you can enjoy food or drinks here no matter the weather or time of day.

Hammett’s Brunch Details
  • Where: 33, 34 Tigné Seafront, Tas-Sliema
  • Brunch Hours: Saturday to Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm
  • Contact: 2134 1116
  • Brunch menu

I have been to brunch at Hammett’s several times, both “regular” and boozy. No matter the drink, I always opt for the delicious American pancakes for food. If you are not much of a sweet tooth, I would recommend the Eggs Benedict.

With the Bottomless Brunch at Hammett’s you can enjoy two hours of free-flowing Prosecco for your table and a brunch dish each at €24 per person. This is a perfect start to the day, especially if you are seated outside in the sun. Another bottomless brunch Malta option, but here you can’t choose any other drinks than Prosecco.

Hammett's Bottomless Brunch

I love pancakes and always go for the “American Short Stack“, the best pancakes (and maple syrup!) in Malta.

24 (with Prosecco)

A la Carte Brunch

3. Manouche Craft Bakery & Bistro, St Julians

Manouche is a French Bakery where I was dying to try the food. Looking at their social media, I was always amazed by the delicious baked goods and dishes they shared. And luckily, I was far from disappointed once I got a taste!

Manouche Brunch Details
  • Where: Spinola Park, SPK 1000, St Julians
  • Brunch Hours: Monday to Sunday, 8 am-3 pm
  • Contact: 2704 1478

Manouche doesn’t actually have a Brunch menu, but an extensive breakfast and lunch menu. The breakfast is now served from 8 am until 3 pm. The hours have been extended due to the high demand! From 12 pm there is also a lunch menu until 3 pm. Simply take your pick and order from what is available.

If you want to go for a great brunch early or late, I promise you it will be worth it. The breakfast menu at Manouche includes so many unique dishes. Here you can find a vide variety of omelettes, benedicts, french toast and more. Don’t forget to order some fresh baked goods on the side or to go!

I like to order a mix of sweet and savoury. Last time I had an Almond, Chocolate Croissant and a Brioche bun with Avocado, Egg and Bacon.

€2-€11 per dish

4. Crust Bakery – Bar – Bistro, St Julians

Crust Malta is a great spot for lunch, dinner, drinks or brunch. The restaurant is led by Chef Sean Gravina who really knows how to combine flavours and textures into a great dish.

At Crust, you will find a modest brunch menu covering all the classic dishes. Try a staple Smashed Avocado Toast or Eggs Benedict, or try something different with a Sweet French Toast or Breakfast Tagine. If you don’t feel like a classic brunch dish, you can choose from the lunch menu where you’ll find salads, burgers and more.

In addition to the tasty dishes, Crust has a full menu of drinks to enjoy with the food. Try one of the three unique brunch cocktails or an old favourite. Remember to book in advance, especially if you want to sit outside in the sun!

I have tried a few dishes at Crust, but nothing beats the “Sweet French Toast” which is a perfect combination of Banana, Peanut Butter, Berries and more deliciousness.

€8-€13 per dish

5. U Bistrot, St Julians

Similar to Manouche, U Bistrot doesn’t have a specific brunch menu. But I wanted to include it on the list as you will find a long breakfast menu here, serving every day until 12:30 pm.

U Bistrot Brunch Details
  • Where: George Borg Olivier St, St Julian’s
  • Brunch Hours: Monday to Friday, 10 am to 12:30 pm and Saturday to Sunday, 9 am to 12:30 pm
  • Contact: 2311 2361
  • Brunch menu

At U Bistrot you can go for sweet or savoury, healthy or naughty. There are many classic breakfast dishes to choose between, ranging from €5 to €10. The restaurant is lovely decorated on the inside, but if you are lucky with the weather, you can soak up some sun and enjoy the view of Ballutta while eating your breakfast.

Again, I opt for the pancakes. In my opinion they are not as mouth-watering as Hammett’s pancakes, but still good!

€5-€10 per dish

Vegan Brunch in Malta

6. NAAR Restobar, St Julians

Not being a vegan myself, I haven’t searched much for a vegan brunch in Malta. But one of my favourite lunch spots just so happens to have an amazing vegan menu for brunch!

NAAR Brunch Details
  • Where: 1 Triq Censu Tabone, St Julians
  • Brunch Hours: Until 12 pm

8. Frensh Bakery, St Julians

Another breakfast, brunch and lunch option on the go and one of my favourite places in Malta. Nothing beats strolling down to Ballutta Bay to pick up some fresh (French) croissants, bread, tarts and more. Frensh is easily my favourite bakery in Malta.

Frensh Brunch Details
  • Where: 37 Pjazza Balluta, St Julian
  • Brunch Hours: Tuesday to Sunday 7:30 am to 6:30 pm

Even though you can’t sit down to eat at Frensh, this spot offers some delicious brunch food. That is why I love to stroll down and buy some things for takeaway to eat at home or in Ballutta Square.

Try a bit of everything and go for a mix of sweet and savoury. As this is a very popular spot though, I recommend being early to avoid the worst queues.
