"Tentaçoes" means "temptations" in Portuguese, and this café is more than aptly named. Nestled on a tree-lined street in the heart of Famalicão, Portugal, it is a go-to place for locals and visitors alike for coffee, organic and specialty teas, pastries, or a glass of wine. (If you're looking for something stronger, order a caipirinha, a drink made with the sweet Brazilian cachaça, or a basic mojito.) Owner/proprietor Elsa will prepare a plate of ham, cheese, and imported olives if you're in the mood for a light snack, or serve up a slice of Lisbon's famous "best chocolate cake in the world" for your sweet tooth.(www.omelhorbolodechocolatedomundo.com). Elsa, who speaks excellent English, creates an elegant yet cozy atmosphere with modern decor and soft music. Jams, jellies, olives, sauces, pasta (chocolate fettuccine, anyone?), cookies and crackers baked at a nearby monastery, and a fine selections of wines are available to take home, and she specializes in custom cakes. Don't miss a visit to this treasure.
