We had seen the good reviews on TripAdvisor and visited for a breakfast/lunch. The food was great. The weather was very windy but watching the clouds move over the island was fascinating.

A real find with a good mix of locals and tourists. Very cheap cool beers, great coffee, delicious toasties and burgers. Sit at the stools and enjoy the super view over the beach across to the cliffs. Lovely friendly owner, a real Madeiran Tom Cruise! It is a 10 minute walk from Pestana Grand. To find walk 30m on on...

The cafe is above a supermarket, it is quite small with outside tables under sun shades, lunchtime you have got to try the xxl Madeira cheese toastie for 2. Superb.

What a wonderful cafe. We just happened to be walking and saw the red umbrellas up above the shopping centre. We were looking for a snack and ordered one of the toasties he specialises in. They were the best toasties we have ever had and served on a lovely board. The view across to cabo gireo was a bonus and... More

Little rooftop cafe above the Centromar shopping centre, excellent view out to sea and towards the far cliffs to the west. Good coffee, only €1.10 and very reasonably priced menu with soup at €2 and a good selection of burgers, toasties etc from about €3.50. Just look for the red umbrellas whilst walking along the ocean promenade.

Really nice restaurant specialising in meat and fish. Children's menu was really good and the most of a meal my 3 children ate all holiday. The T Bone Steak is huge and seasoned really nicely. Great value you for money

Thank you dannypitcher, but must be a mistake, we are specialized in XXL Toasties, not meat and fish! More

This is a 'hidden away' little gem of a café on the rooftop of the shopping complex on the walkway in front of the Pestana Grand. Above the Mex restaurant: look out for the umbrellas on the roof. Pint (500ml) of beer less than 2.00 euros and very good value lunchtime snacks. But this is a place to find just... More

What an absolutely superb cafe, everyone must try this fantastic place, the BEST view of Cabo Girao in Madeira. Coffee is great, Super Bock fab and the toasties are huge and delicious. The view is out of this world.
