“Nice and cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This little spot was accidentally discovered by us as my 5 year old insisted on having an icecream after spotting the placard outside.
We ended up returning to the place for a snack later at night and although it wont win awards for the culinary skills of the chef, it is very cheap and cheerful.
The reason we went back was due to the friendliness of the staff there.
My son got a nosebleed because of the heat and without getting bothered by all the blood the staff members swiftly pointed us to the bathroom and gave us ice-cubes to apply to his nose.
All this without asking and with minimum fuss.
The food is fine but the coffee is more than passable.
Would recommend for the above reasons.

“Convenient for a night cap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Didn't use this place during the day,but it looked well patronised.Called in on the way back to the hotel for coffee a few nights.Staff ok but not very friendly,the chap making the coffee had a stinking cold and was snotting and sniffing behind the counter.Rather off putting!! Coffee could have been a bit hotter,sent it back and asked him to warm it up a bit.Overall not bad,but plenty of other places to choose from.

“Lots of choice on the menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great for snacks, cakes and drinks. Good service most of the time and very reasonable prices. Next to Mirachoro Praia Hotel at the top of the hill. Did have a strange cake one day, still no idea what it was, but generally the food we had was good. Would recommend the toasted sandwiches.

“Great coffee spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Great spot for a coffee or breakfast, nice inside and out with free wifi and friendly staff.

A little more modern than most cafe so if you after a more portuguese place maybe not the one
