Many were those who shared their memories of the shop from their childhood, recounting how they HAD to stop there every time they visited Valletta to buy a small something; or how they bought all sorts of celebration props during Carnival or whenever Valletta won the football championship. Many others spoke of the “true gentleman” behind the counter, Felix, who was always there to greet you with a smile, and was always ready to give a helping hand!
Bay Breakfast’s Ylenia also spoke of the ritual which her family had, every time they went to Valletta.
