The Old Pharmacy is a very nice little café/snackbar in the small town of Ponta do Sol. To keep it short: Very good sandwiches, friendly service, very good Ponchas, nice flair.

Best maracuja caipi on the island. We went there nearly every day either for a tapas lunch or in the evenning for caipis. Highly recommend their cheese and meat board. They also have a nice selection on wines.
