As part of a three day attempt to do all there is on Fogo Island we enjoyed another lovely dinner at Nicole's Cafe. We were lucky to get in on a Wed evening at 8 without reservations! The dining room was busy with large and small tables but we were quickly seated and enjoyed excellent service from Candice.
The salad featured local greens and a partridge berry vinegrette. The dressing changes according to the seasonal availability of ingredients! Salt fish fritters with a curried dip and mussels were also excellent.
We couldn't get past the Jigg's Dinner special. Traditional Jigg's dinner with salt beef, turnip, carrot, parsnip, cabbage, potato and pease pudding.....and pickled beets on the table, just like home! Dinner for 3, with 3 bar drinks came out around $110 and worth every cent!
Breakfast of 2 eggs each, homemade toast (homemade bread) and partridge berry or bakeapple jam with Fair trade coffee was less than $11 for two people.
Lunch (we did have three days, you know) gave me a chance to try their excellent seafood chowder. Never made it to desserts and only did half of what's to do on the Island so I guess we'll have to go back!
Reservations are recommended but they did a great job of fitting us in unexpected.
Excellent service too!
