“MY NO1 CHOICE IN FARO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

In Faro it is easy to end up having coffee in overpriced tourist pastelarias & snack bars This is a little harder to find but worth the effort Very good value , clean & friendly A good guide is the amount of locals who use it
There is an area outside at the back to sit if you want to sit in the sun or under trees for shade

To the side is a lunch area with the entrance via the pastelaria
Lunch is very good value with many local dishes ( they will sell 1/2 portions if you do not want a large meal ) The daily specials are in not in English but there has never been a problem with having somebody explain it to me

“GREAT FOOD, GREAT PRICES, VERY CLEAN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Living in Faro I often go to this Cafe and the coffee is great. It is not a tourist cafe, it is usually full of locals (good sign). Have always had good snacks there (and great omelettes) and now they have a restaurant too where we ate for under €5 each.
The service is very good and when you enter you are greeted with smiles from everyone and you don't feel they are doing it because they are hoping for a good tip (because when you just have a coffee, you don't tip!).
Most important - it is one of the cleanest cafes I have been in - if I am waiting for a take away, I sit and look around and I cannot fault it even in the deep corners and underneath low furniture ... spotless.
This is one of Faro's great secrets - don't tell too many people or you won't find a vacant table (I have often had to wait and that is always a good indication).
I have been going here for several years but never thought to write a review!!
