We popped in for lunch, and ordered a salad and chicken sandwiches. The salads were great - fresh, light, and not overly covered in sauce. The sandwiches were on fresh buns, and were perfect for a mid-day meal.

Bakery/cafe/restaurant on streetfront at Sol Mar mall, across from harbour. Had the Natas dos Acores, fabulous little tarts filled with passionfruit and pineapple flavoured pastry cream. Nice spot to sit and people watch, drink a coffee and have a pastry.
