Were here by accident having sat in wrong seats but was lovely find with a very wide selection of teas and fabulous pastel de nata. Only downside was some difficulty getting the bill and then actually paying.

We had a cup of tea here with a sandwich. Ginger/mint tea tastes good, as did the white tea. Sandwiches were fine, price is right. Service is friendly and the square has very nice ambience.

Visited this tea room with outside seating twice. Wow what a find. Lovely coffee and their choice of teas was exceptional. The scones were delicious and as for the muffins so light and with a hint of orange mmm! All homemade every day. The menu looked very good and everything was very reasonably priced. Don't miss out!!

You are made most welcome here. There is a tea for every occasion. Most sit outside but upstairs is like a comfy room . Try something different. The costs are very reasonable .

What an unexpected find! A charming unpretentios tea house, in a lovely little madeiran square right in the heart of Funchal. The tea is outstanding (over 120 varieties) and all at sensible prices. We had several enjoyable afternoon teas with cake or scones for €3.50 each, whilst on holiday here. When we bought tea to take home and as gifts,... More

Whilst I have regularly recommended Loja do Cha to visitors I have not stopped here for a while due to previous experiences. My friends had similar experiences. Unfortunately, our revisit proved our point entirely. Cold tea and tasteless, cold coffee was their offering. It remains in a great location and a lovely place to relax, but most other city cafes...

A most beautiful place that does pay attention to detail. Excellent in every way from the decor to the staff and all other areas in between. Two visits this week. Both faultless. So many teas to choose from. Freshly baked cakes and deserts compliment the salads sandwiches and toasties. Very professional and polite approach from the staff. Don't miss it... More

Good selection of quality teas, and home baked cakes, excellent location with a square to sit in and soak up the sun. If you love tea then this must be on your list open to 7:30 every night

Stopped by for Sunday tea after seeing it earlier in holiday. Just a lovely place. Staff are very enthusiastic about tea. Bought most of our holiday gifts here as so nice. So much choice. Amazing cheesecake and apple cake. Didn't got for 'Teatails' - afternoon tea basically but they sounded lovely and very reasonable prices.
