Description: The Loja do Cha is a tea house located in a beautiful square with yellow painted buildings behind the famous Se Cathedral in the city centre of Funchal. . 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. Also provides the possibility of sitting outside whilst relaxing and watching the passers-by. On store are wide ranges of teas including fruit teas uncommonly found in the island. Coffee is now also available. Serves light snacks such as quiche and sandwiches as well as delicious homemade sponge and fruit cakes, cheesecakes and scones to accompany your tea. Service is very friendly and staff are extremely knowledgeable about the world of tea. A highly recommended locale.

“Still fab...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is a charming place for an afternoon cuppa. They do a lovely creamy baked cheese cake which goes well with any tea. Excellent teas, lovely fruity mixes. Treat yourself to a few packks to bring home, to remind yourself of your holiday!

“Perfect for a quiet cup of tea and cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We stumbled across this tea shop and were enticed by the daily special of orange cake with a tea or coffee for 3.50 euros. We weren't disappointed, the cake is homemade and delicious. The range of tea was wonderful and first class service too. We'll be back!

“The best place for tea in Funchal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

A great place for a cup of tea and a snack. We always visit Loja do Cha at least once when we visit Funchal. Sitting outside enjoying the world pass by in the square is relaxing and fun. Our recent visit was no exception and the standard remains high. We will return soon!!

“Very classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

A nice place to buy tea and its accessories. You will get help from the staff that speaks English and will explain you all about tea species and tastes. Located in Funchal - Madeira Island

“Great place for tea & cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A very nice tea shop in the square behind the cathedral. The staff are very helpful if you are not sure what to choose. Thanks to their help I chose Walnut Tart which is not something I would usually consider. It was lovely. As well as many teas they serve good coffee and, though I didn't try it, their light lunches and snacks menu looked very good too.
