The Loja do Cha is perfect when looking for a break from traditional cafes in Madeira and is an excellent establishment characterized by charm and class.

We came upon this little eatery when wandering around Funchal. There are tables outside and also a tea lounge on the first floor. We had tea, coffee, scones and the best ever passion fruit jam. Delightful service and a great place to sit and watch the world go by. A must visit.

Wandering around Funchal, and decided it was time for a cuppa, normally a coffee drinker, I thought I'd be bold and try the tea of the day. Very pleasant, sat outside drinking tea in December, and the greatest surprise was the charge, very reasonable indeed. Nic touch was the inclusion with the bill of a complementary tea bag. Nothing too... More

Very well worth a visit whilst in funchal ... It has over 125 different teas to chose from and you can sit inside or outside on the pavement area. Also there are a lot of offers to include tea and cake for wonderful prices. It's located behind the catholic cathedral in the town .... Highly recommended!

We stopped off at the "Loja Do Cha" for a cup of tea and a snack during a recent visit to Madeira. What an amazing and original place this is.

We went here after a very sub standard lunch. We were looking for somewhere to get desert and we found the right place. the cakes were deliscious and the selection of tea was fantastic. Nice little touches all around the shop added to it all.
