Caffè Berry, a staple for coffee lovers heading to Valletta, on Sunday announced that it will be closing the doors of its café in the capital permanently.

“It is a moment of emotion, but also of great enthusiasm for what is to come,” the statement from the team on social media read.

The team thanked its customers for the “love, support, and smiles” that they have given every day. “From local customers to international visitors, you made every moment unforgettable. In recent years we have had the privilege of meeting millions of extraordinary people, each of whom has contributed to making our café a unique place,” it continued.

Caffè Berry was established in 2014, and over the years, its café in Republic Street, Valletta has become well known for its coffee and desserts.

“We would like to continue being your favourite spot, where you can spend time and savour our finest creations,” the statement said, with the team adding that in recent years, it has had a race against time in order to keep up with its growing clientele.

While the news of the café’s closing came as a disappointment to many customers, Caffè Berry stated that this is part of its wider project towards internationalisation.

“Now, in our project, we’re piecing together all the phases to express our full potential. The design of this next step requires time, commitment, research, and development to meet our aspiration to internationalise the project. We’ve decided that this is a great opportunity and an exciting challenge to create a complete space that can be a corner of the special place for you,” the statement added.

The team also confirmed that the café in Saint Dominic Street, Sliema, will remain temporarily closed, with Caffè Berry exploring the possibility of offering customers purchase and delivery services through the different delivery platforms available in Malta over the coming days.

“Stay connected with us as we work diligently to make all this possible. See you soon for your usual cup of happiness,” the team concluded.

Many took to the comments section to wish Caffè Berry well in its next venture, stating that even though the café will be sorely missed, they are “excited about what will come next.”

“Caffè Berry, for me you were number one. I still remember your cappuccino and hot chocolate. For me you were not only my favourite place, but also my favourite people. Good luck for everything,” one customer wrote.
