“Want to Order a Birthday Cake?”

Pastelaria Charlotte
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Almancil
Description: This is a pastry shop, take out only, but it is probably the best in the Algarve. Recommended: Almond tarta to die for, unbelievably good; almond cookies; bolo rei at Christmastime, and more. Also breakfast pastries. Closes at 1:30 so go in the morning.

Throughout the last 10 years we have ordered all our b-day cakes at Charlotte's and they have always been delicious! Even if you are a sweet tooth and wnat to get some desert, pass by at Charlotte and have a look at their display. You will leave fully packed :)

A must when visiting the area. Superb authentic Portuguese baking. Not cheap because they don't compromise on quality of ingredients. Almond cake is chock full of almonds, not just one layer as in some restaurants. Almond cookies heavenly. Bolo Rei delicious and not too sweet. Excellent place to pick up something to bring a hostess. I often long for this place when not here.

The wonderful bakers at Charlotte are so friendly and are always offering warm samples of their latest creations. Their pastries are absolutely delicious and always fresh. Highly recommend a quick visit into Charlotte to quench your dessert cravings.

We often buy Charlotte's cakes for dessert when we have friends round for dinner, for all kinds of celebrations and gatherings. They are consistently fresh and delicious; many are made with fresh cream and fresh fruit (sometimes tinned peaches etc are used). My husband's favourite is their mille-feuille (mil folhas) sold by the slice or as a whole 8 portion gateau. You can also get seasonal specialities such as bolo rei at Xmas. I speak to them in Portuguese, I don't think they speak English, but I'm sure they will try to be helpful.
They supply other establishments as a wholesale bakery.
