Small bar with pool table and sports on television. Their cocktail and shots menu has plenty of options and all of them are very cheap. Definitely worth a visit. The place (the specially the back) could use some restyling.

We did not see many good looking cafe in this area and the Traffic Lights cafe was recommend to us when we visited the Hypernium. The food and coffee was excellent. The filled rolls are large and very good. Worth a visit.

We popped in for a loo stop really after visiting the temple and hypogeum. Slow service, no pastries being served at the time of our visit. We had a drink and left.

Although the chocolates we ordered were very yummy, the staff was disappointing and really annoyed us: the waitress didn't pay attention to our calls either when we wanted to order another drink or when we asked for the bill. Moreover, credit card payment is not...More

The waitress was incapable to serve me even when I was calling her for a long time. I've never seen such incompetent staff.

There was a good atmosphere, good service and good food considering that this is a cafe. One of the few places in paola centre where you can chill.

Beautiful home made pasta at very cheap prices. Great family service and very cold beer. A lucky find while visiting Tarxien. Party of six were all very impressed. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
