This café is a welcome sight for those in need of a breather following a steep climb up the eponymous stairway – but of course you don’t need to have scaled the 365 steps to enjoy the cafe’s eclectic Mediterranean fare. Owned by Karen Davies and Rod Mann, Whaligoe Steps Cafe opened in September 2011 and has a simplistic contemporary style with stunning views from its clifftop perch. The chef’s Maltese and Italian heritage is evident in the regularly changing menu which reflects the best that the area has to offer seasonally, and also makes nods to Turkish, Spanish, Greek and North African cuisine. A roster of events including mezze nights, cake-making classes and ‘pizza & poker’ nights (with proceeds going to the local RNLI) make for a welcoming cafe with close ties to its local community.
