“Outstanding Coffee & Cakes”
Review of Pastelaria Perini

Pastelaria Perini
Ranked #2 of 2 Coffee & Tea in Alvor
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2015

I have reviewed this café previously but feel duty-bound to do so again. It really is a great little coffee shop with delightful little cakes, all made on the premises by the owner. Note to suewroe - they really are brilliant!
It isn't the smartest nor does it have the loudest music - there are plenty of those in Alvor but, by gosh, it is the best place to have coffee and cakes.

Noticed the great reviews on trip advisor. So in we popped whilst out for a stroll.
The cakes on offer did not tempt me- to be honest the little pastries did not look home baked.
We only ordered a coffee, it was the best coffee in 10 years of drinking lattes around the village of Alvor. It was not presented as anything fancy but yes yes YES a proper full bodied decent latte with some taste to it and only a euro.
I will return and hopefully some of these highly praised cakes.

We visit here regularly when holidaying in Alvor. It is a plain but busy little coffee shop frequented by the locals which is always a good sign. The owner bakes all the cakes himself, he used to be a patisserie chef on cruise ships etc and his cakes are amazing but also very good value. Cafe dublo and a Portuguese tart is a daily treat here.

It certainly isn't the smartest but this little pastelleria is a favourite with locals and discerning visitors. It seems like it's been going forever. The coffee (Chave d'Oro) is good and cheap, the cakes are just brilliant. Obviously the Pastel de Nata is excellent but try the fig cake and the carob cake.
While the interior is a little dowdy (did I say a little) the street seating is just the place to watch the daily life of Alvor. It's also very handy for the municipal market - the place to buy your fruit and vegetables.
We visit this lovely pastelleria daily when we're in Alvor. Highly recommended.

Very cute old fashioned cafe/patisserie which opens until dell into the evening. Staff relaxed and approachable. Good value. Feels like you are stepping back in time
