Part of the Brisa Sol Hotel as is Pastelaria Florenca across the road. Reasonable for drinks and cakes. Nothing special about the meals.

This is underneath the Brisa Sol Hotel which makes it a very good reason to stay at the hotel. The Riviera is open from 8am until 1am 7 days a week so your waistline is on a loser. The selection of cakes and pastries is amazing and mouthwatering and it is so hard to make your choice, so I like to have somrthing differant every visit which is very often. They also do hot food ( my husband loves their fried chicken ), sandwiches, Omelettes, and lovely fresh salad. They staff are all lovely and friendly, very helpfull and love it when you try to speak Portuguese. Whenever we went in they always greated us with a smile.

This place is actually a restaurant and has this bakery shop style set up in the front facing the busy street it is on. The menu looked varied and interesting with sandwiches, quiche and omelets for example. The bakery showcase had a variety of pies, cakes, tarts, cookies and more. The prices started at just over one Euro. I don’t understand Portuguese so I could only choose based on what I saw. The receipt says I bought an alentejano for 1.10 and a pastel amendo for 1.15. They were gently placed in a small box for carry out. Although I snuck a wee bite of each in the car, there is no doubt they are best gently warmed. The pastry on each is different and delicious. The filling is just the right amount and not too sweet. Wonderful served with a cup of very hot water!

went there after seing the reviews on this place and got the torta de ovos,within 4 hours i was vomiting all over the place for the rest of the day,took me 2 days to recover,beware of what sweets you are going to eat at this place,workers there just want to sell what ever they have and are not worried if the client is going to get sick,also the workers there thought that they were too good to attend the client,they were really busy talking to each other instead,go across the road to a match better experience and service.

Absolutely loved this place and went here everyday during our stay. The sandwiches are lovely, and the cakes divine!
We tried the almond croissants and creme anglaise pastries which were lovely as was the strawberry cheesecake. But our favourite was the tiramisu which i fear we overindulged in! A must try for anyone visiting Albufeira.
