“Warm, friendly welcomes - every time”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Exceptionally well run and Sue, Natalie and Joao do their utmost to provide a varied menu that caters for all ages and diets. All three go out of their way to welcome new faces and make "old" familiar ones feel like one of their family. It is a unique spot, tucked away next to the pools in the St James apartment complex on Rua 25th Abril road, very close to the Barclays bank - and well worth a visit if only for a slice of delicious home made carrot or vanilla fresh cream sponge cake with coffee or a pot of tea.
Natalie makes a wicked jug of sangria and Sue can produce restaurant quality snacks and full English breakfasts to tempt your taste buds.
I wholeheartedly recommend this eatery venue to all.

“Coffee Cup”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

What a welcoming coffee shop this is.The staff are very welcoming and friendly nothing is too much trouble if you would like something that is not on the menu they will try to do it for you.The sangria is the best I have tasted and the homemade cakes are just the best.Food is freshly prepared on ordering and the service is second to none I am certainly going to miss it.Thanks again Sue,Natalie and Joao I hope to see you very soon.............
