The Cake Shop SM

The cake shop specialises in cakes for weddings, birthdays and other events. Luckily for us (who are not hosting an event), we can go and enjoy their delicious cakes at their newly opened café by the Albufeira Marina. The pastries and cakes here are homemade with the freshest ingredients and perfectly balanced flavours. Enjoy them with a cup of coffee or homemade lemonade while watching people and boats go by at the marina.

If you love good quality coffee, you have to visit Al Gharb Coffee Roasters. The coffee, that is grounded and roasted at the café, is full of flavours. This family-friendly spot also offers brunch meals, cookies, cakes, and other beverages. They have a lovely outdoor patio and a play area for kids.

Pozzetti Gelato Artigianale

No holiday is complete without ice cream. My favourite spot for artisanal ice cream is Pozzetti Gelato. The ice cream here is made with fresh, flavourful ingredients and tastes just like Italian gelato. There is a cute little terrace on the backside where you can enjoy the sun and your sweet treat.
