My favorites are chocolate or caramel, both of them make me feel so good :D specially with the hot weather outside!!

If you ever tried a decent/good cupcakes, in my case there is “Hey Sugar”, NEVER try this Maison Cupcakes EVER..
It is more expensive than Hey Sugar and I wish if it was worth the money you pay!!
OH HELL Not at all.
The frosting on the top was so hard and dry, like it was on the counter for a week.
The other cupcake, which was suppose to be a cheesecake cupcake!! Cheesecake is usually creamy and soft!! This one I could through it on a passing cars’ window and I could break the glass easily!!

EVEN my DOG refused to eat these cupcakes, they went totally to the garbage bin.. such a bad bad experience..
A BIG NO" for Maison Cupcake, added to my X LIST..

Lavanda is a nice small cafe located inside Abela Supermarket. They serve nice decent food.
I loved the appetizers, Hummus was yummy, Salad and fried Kebbe was pretty good too. The Pasta was ok, not bad..
Drinks were acceptable as they have a nice range of fresh and mixed juices.

Ohhh, A Tip: Try to avoid the dessert, since I tried it twice and both time they were hard and not fresh at all..

Look how Elegant and yummy they look!!??

Here are some "To Go" too :p you never know when you will get hungry

If you are in the area, doing some grocery shopping at Abela and felt hungry, Lavanda is not a bad place to have lunch for a change..Nothing WoW..

La Fontanat is a great place to have a quiet relaxing breakfast or lunch, but after that it gets crowdie “which I totally hate” Ohhhhhhhhhhh, and they have Sheesha*smoke* which I totally hate too :p

We go there nearly 3 times a week to have snacks, lunch, or just to have some sugary desserts, while at work  :D The silly girls at work say that the manager of the restaurant has a crush on me!!! LOL, when the girls go alone he ignores them and the waiter takes their order, BUT whenever I go with them he comes to chat with us ask about work and gives us “AMAZING” yummy complementary desserts and cocktails :D
It is only cuz I am nice with people!! I guess :D and I like to show off my teeth a lot, in a nice way not the scary one :p

Oh the food and desserts are so so sooooooooooo good. Here are some pics of the yummy babies so you know what I am talking about.. I'll start with the yummy desserts

This is the amazing Chocolate Swissroll, yumy
This was the Fried Ice Cream!! the only thing that I didn't like at this place, it tasted more like a Fried Chicken :p

Chocolate Cake, SOOOOOOOOOO yummy
