WELCOME TO MDINA’S HIDDEN GEM
Enjoy the quiet, secluded ambiance of Gustav Café away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Possessing the highest viewpoint in Mdina, serving tasty traditional Maltese sweets and snacks as well as vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free goodies.
QUIET. SECLUDED. SOPHISTICATED.
There are 2 types of coffee: mediocre coffee and coffee that hits your soul at the initial sip, and Gustav relishes the latter. Serving a premium organic coffee blend, Gustav offers different types of coffees to suit everyone's caffeine desires, including a range of milk options as well as decaf options.
Possessing the highest viewpoint in Mdina, the view from Gustav's Roof Terrace is truly spectacular, and, together with the ambiance and striking interior design, it is truly a treat for all the senses. Definitely a view that must be appreciated in person, as no amount of photos will do it justice.
Catering goodies for everyone, Gustav prides itself in versatility & choice, offering traditional Maltese sweets, as well as Vegeterian, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, Nut-Free, Organic and Sugar-Free cakes and light savoury snacks.
A selection of workshops held monthly, catering for everyone from children's cooking classes in the museum's own refectory, to adult hobby-learning and food & alcohol tasting in the roof terrace lounge. The marriage of Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum and Gustav Cafe fuses both these settings in an enjoyable manner. Definitely not to be missed!
Palazzo Falson is a two-storey medieval palace fashioned on Sicilian examples of its period. It consists of a series of rooms wrapped around an internal courtyard, and an overlying piano-nobile which contains the original living quarters. The set of rooms at the back of the courtyard form the oldest part of the building, dating back to the 13th century.
By night, the Silent City is transformed into the most magical of places, a timeless experience that must be appreciated for the gem it truly is. Gustav sets the mood with ambient sounds and a selection of local & foreign wines and platters, including its famous Maltese platter 'La Confraternita Della Pipa', named after Olaf Gollcher's own confraternity.
