We had tea or coffee here each time we visited Funchal centre. Excellent service and delicious choices of both teas and cakes. A clean loo as well. The assam and the darkening were both perfect. Scones lovely and warm.

Have visited Madeira a good few times but on my recent trip by chance discovered this gem not far from the front and near the cathderal. Small in size staff friendly coffee excellent must try their tea all going well on my next visit.miss The Golden gate but this could become a great alternative at least to me.

I found this tea house some years ago and always make sure I visit at least a couple of times. Visiting the Tea house is always a pleasure, refreshing drinks, good variety of food and a real Madeiran welcome from the staff. I would recommend this to anyone.
