This is a cafe run by two brothers who are very nice and helpful. They serve freshly squeezed orange and will do toast or whatever you want for breakfast. Whenever we were in there it was frequented by locals rather than tourists.

The BEST Coral on Madeira, the BEST coffee in Madeira, absolutely brilliant host (Elidio). It may only be a cafe but it is much, much more. Locals adore it, tourists love it. If you visit the museums it's a must. Just a snack, a coffee...More
