We really enjoyed the coffee and pastries, plus they are very friendly.
Well worth a trip to Esposende just for the cakes.

Of all the places to visit in Esposende, this is the most important. When you are tired from walking or cycling up the marginal, this beautiful award winning cafe, is a place to draw breath, relax, meet friends, and enjoy the most delicious cakes and chocolate you have eaten. The coffee is the very best, served by helpful and welcoming owners. We loved visiting Marbela, and became regular visitors for meia de leite and top class pasteis de nata. Sometimes, we would sit outside and watch the world go by. Marbela, have won many awards for their chocolate and their confectionery including competitions in Lyon in France. Don't miss it..
