Visited for a coffee, quiche and cake, excellent as always, the chef is to be commended. To be good is difficult, to be consistent is hard so to be consistently good is impressive. Keep up the good work.

We had the Belgian chocolate cake and orange almond and caramel cake which were delightful. They also had the lavazza brand for coffee which you don't get everywhere . Will definitely be b k for some more. We even bought cakes to go for our sons. Keep up the good work.

I am glad you enjoyed your cakes and coffee, Suzanne. We have served Lavazza coffee since we opened the shop, about 6 years ago, and our customers have always loved it! See you soon! More

A delightful spot for coffee and cake. We will be back soon to try their quiche or toasted homemade sandwiches. Lots of thought has gone into the decor. Coffee and cakes were excellent and service with a smile. They even have space outside where dogs are allowed.

Thank you Hewson for your comments; We wake up early everyday to have our Danish Pastries hot & crispy when we open the café. It brings such a delicious smell in the room! More

Popped in on Saturday in Sept. Ordered quiche and a toasted sandwich plus 2 Portuguese custard tarts to eat in. All were delicious and nothing was left. We were not hurried and ate a relaxing meal. Bought some cake to take away and they were lovely too. We will definitely be going back there soon.

I moved to Southsea recently and this place is my fave on Albert Road for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. Absolutely love the atmosphere and back garden. Very cosy comfy and relaxing place with added bonus of not being overpriced. Keep it up!

We are not regulars to Albert Road but on this occasion we had to pick up an item that needed alterations. Whilst walking back to catch the bus into Southsea Precinct we saw a wonderful display of homemade pastries in the window of Casa de Castro.
