Now if you are in the golden triangle on your holiday this is a must. It's easy enough to find just being on the corner near the school - look for the aluminium sliding doors which make it look a little shut up at times....More

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.
