I had to go in every single time I went into Victoria! They make the BEST profiteroles I have ever eaten in my whole life! Everything is so well made and just absolutely delicious.

Right in the middle of Victoria Market is this gem of a cafe serving anything from Pastries and Pasta to Ice Cream and Cocktails. Great ambience and friendly service

Somewhat hidden away, I was taken to this café and was surprised by its location. Service was good and the coffee and tea excellent.

Coffee in a small nice place, in the middle of town. Not much to do or observe other than relaxing mid day

The place to relax and chill out during the sight seeing day in Victoria. The Air Conditioning was welcoming at mid-day. It tasted like real Italian coffee, had a good selection of ice creams and the cool drink. The locals used the drinks and food facilities showing it was the place to use..

My husband and I ate some spectacular and unique ice cream flavors! Their ice cream is excellent. It is a very nice place. Their owners are Italians and the flavors that you find there are really a little piece of Italy in Seychelles

First there was no service, then got sold a rather un-distinguishable gelato with a taste not clear what it was, just very sweet. then had an espresso, ok, but place is not up to standard what i would experct from a representative of Italy, poor.
