“Lovely place to relax in the center of Malé”
Review of Cafe'ier

Cafe'ier
Ranked #5 of 7 Coffee & Tea in Male
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 January 2017

It was hot. Motorcycles were whizzing by, some almost riding over my feet as I tentatively stepped off the curb. I'd visited the vegetable and the fish markets, strolled by the mosque, and felt that I'd seen enough of Malé. So before taking the ferry back to Hulhumale, where I was staying, I was searching for a place that was cool and had a clean ladies' room. I asked a passerby and she immediately suggested Café Ier, just a few minutes away from the old Muslim cemetery.

What a lovely surprise! Not only was there air-conditioning, a spotless restroom, and plenty of tables, but also a very tempting display of homemade ice cream. I learned later that the flavours change every day and they are real Italian recipes. You get a generous portion in a bowl for just a few dollars and during my short stay in Malé I tried several of the flavors. My favorites were the New York Cheesecake and the Blueberry.

Café Ier offers every type of Italian coffees, expressos, cappuccinos, and lattes you could wish for, both hot and cold, as well as an interesting selection of tea and ice tea, milkshakes, and fresh fruit juice. I really recommend taking a break in this conveniently-located café to relax and enjoy some refreshments.

Good and big portions of icecream (be careful when ordering more than one scoop). The coffee and variety is great also. Blessed air-conditioning on a hot and sticky day :)

Slightly sixties feel abut it but all the better for that. A teenage hangout in the evening, I was impressed to see a table of them conversing in English. Coffee and ice cream good as was the air on.

This is the second Cafe'ier, nearer the seafront and ferry. It has a BATH....yes a bath...in the front when you walk in as there is a bath showroom upstairs! The Lavazza coffee is very good and the selection of sweets/candies is good. They also serve some sanwiches and a very small selection of cake. There is seating in the back of the cafe. Staff were friendly. Its expensive for a coffee but not for Male', all coffees seem to be expensive.

Great little place to cool down with ice-cream if you need to take a break from the stifling heat of Male. The owner and staff are friendly and the range of coffees are great too. The establishment is modern, nicely decorated and air-conditioned and great to go with small or large groups of friends.
