Lovely and relaxing

We sat under the umbrealla's (it was a showery day) and watched the world go by whilst enjoying delicious tea and cake. A huge variety of tea's to choose from. You can order combinations from the extensive menu or choose individual options.

We happened upon this cafe in a quiet square and enjoyed relaxing outside with coffee, cake or a beer. It is an enchanting place and very clean. The limited lunch menu looked really good but we were never there at our lunch time. Quite a find

We loved the Tea House. The teas and the cakes were great. We had the 'teatail' (their version of an afternoon tea) and the cake of the day (a lovely orange sponge). We sat outside and enjoyed the car free square. However, would have been happy to sit inside upstairs if the weather had been worse.

The tea house is on one of the most interesting squares in Funchal Some inside seats but sitting out is best. We went a couple of times during our week's holiday, craving a good cup of tea The choice of teas and iced teas is wide, and the food was good- salads, sandwiches and cakes. The shop sells loose tea... More

Small tea house with an outside seating area. Massive choice of tea but the coffee is excellent as well. Located in a quiet square on the far end of the new town before you reach the old town this was recommended by our holiday rep. Good price, good sized portions and no pressure from the staff to order, eat up... More

We had lunch here - tuna salad with chunks of tuna that were really overcooked and my partner had a tropical crepe that had chicken and he said that was very overcooked too. Other than that, they tasted fine. The service was friendly but very slow. They charged us for the butter on our bread!

We were stopping at the Santa Maria in old town Funchal and discovered the tea rooms by accident. We had coffee rather than tea with two pieces of cake which was really delicious. There was a man playing an accordion who went from table to table and indicated we put money in his pot, he was very insistent. Then a... More

We saw the tea house yesterday when walking past and made a note to return today. Doing a roaring trade despite trip advisor saying it is closed. Huge range of teas to try but ours came to €8.40 for two teas and scones as I think we upgraded to large teas. Saw somebody else having the country bread rolls which... More
