We had been told about the Tea House so decided to visit and we are so pleased we did. We sat outside in the square. The tea room is quite small but the huge selection of teas is wonderful and unusual. The cakes are really good and must be tried. The staff are so friendly and helpful and gave good... More

This cafe is perfectly situated in town and we've been in twice now. The staff are so friendly, they are always smiling and the whole atmosphere is contagious as a result of the staff. It is a small, perfectly formed two storey tea room with interesting tea parafanalia to purchase and of course wonderful tea to drink. The menu is... More

Stopped here for lunch and a drink after a walk in Funchal. Such a lovely, small cafe with an intimate feeling. Fantastic speciality tea and salads as well as a range of things to buy, such as mugs and dried tea in many flavours! Great cafe!

Excellent pots of tea accompanied by moist orange cake, sitting outside in a quiet square. We were lucky to get the last table outside. Very relaxing and tasty, good value and makes a change from coffee.

We stopped for a pot of Earl Grey plus scones, following a walk around Funchal and were most impressed. The service was brilliant and most friendly. What a lovely place and an excellent 'pit stop' whilst visiting Funchal. Worth finding, then sit back, relax and enjoy the service.

This little tea house in the Yellow Square near the Cathedral is astonishing in the quality of teas and snacks that it provides. The waitress informed me they do 120 different varieties of tea - who am I to argue but I would have thought they have more than that. The "Speciality Of The Day" on one of our visits... More

This is a regular place which we visit each time that we are in Madeira. The salads and sandwiches are varied and always freshly prepared from top quality ingredients. The house cake is recommended. There is a wide range of quality teas available. Ideally the weather allows sitting outside in the sunny square. It remains a top quality lunch venue.
