A visit to A Casa da Isabel is a given every year whenever we go to Algarve. Region pastry and the cookies are top.

Brilliant Quaint old typical nineteen 30/40s decor. Myself and my wife popped in for a coffee but could not resist the cakes that were made on the premises. Reasonable prices and really enjoyed what we had. Definitely worth a visit.

The setting of the place is small, cute and cosy and makes you feel like you've travelled back in time. Wide variety of cakes and sweets that go perfectly with a cup of coffee. The service is good and explained what each cake was in good English. The price range was between €1 - €5 and was well worth the price. It's not difficult to find the place but roadside parking around the area is a bit of an issue. Overall, a great place.

If you are into sweet treats, and willing to taste what Portugal has to offer, you will find here the products from a long culinary tradition. It is said that the nuns from the convents had easy access to sugar and eggs, and that resulted in a profusion of cake and sweet recipes that shape what is a Portuguese obsession. Nothing could be closer to sweets heaven than this place. An old looking house, it seems that time has stopped somewhere at the beginning of the 20th century.
From "toucinho do céu" (literally "bacon from heaven" to "bolo real de aljezur" you will find a myriad of sweets and cakes to keep you salivating for days. A place you must try. Definitely 5 stars.

Nice spot in the shade to rest after doing some local shopping. Lemonade water jelly rolls and other sweet & delicious treasures. Interior, decorated in classy traditional tastes 5 star all the way.
Love to return.
