Still trying to play catch up here on my pictures and experiences on the island. When I went out with my friend, Alexandra, the other day, we decided to have lunch at this cafe, which has only been open for a few months. Since cafes tend to close early and really focus on breakfast and lunch patrons, I haven’t had the chance to make it here before because of my schedule. But, as I was out for the day and going around town, I finally had the chance to try it out.
They had a great selection of sweets and sandwiches.
Alexandra ordered a burger.
I just had a cheese and tomato sandwich. The woman did not speak much English and the tiny place was filling up with kids on lunch break from school and adults on break from work, so I went with something easy.
Ordering dessert was NOT a problem! Alexandra had a strawberry tart and I had a PB coconut cake covered with chocolate. Both were excellent!
After those desserts we might need to give this a try…
LOL, I was not aware people did not know you can’t just vibrate the fat away, but apparently this is still an exercise machine over here. I almost died from laughter when we saw this for sale. in case you can’t see, this is called the Vibro.
As if that wasn’t enough good food for you to look at, here is an amazing meal Ryan and I enjoyed at one of our favorite places on the island. I will probably miss eating here the most, and not just because the lobster is the best I have ever had.
They serve bread here with homemade jam and goat cheese.
Ryan ordered the steak, which comes with potatoes, rice and salad. It is not uncommon to get both potatoes and rice with a Portuguese (Azorean) meal.
I had the lobster. I almost ordered something different, but I could not bring myself to do it. When lobster is super expensive, I will not be so liberal in my ordering, but for about $28 (including tax), I can splurge more on it than if I were in the US (or somewhere not on the water). I just love this dish.
Then to finish the meal, a coffee, which is the perfect European end to the perfect European meal.
One final picture, because we thought this was so cute. This is a lamb shaped bread from Easter.
QUESTIONS: Do you have one meal that you always order at a local favorite? Do you like lobster? Do you remember those vibrating exercise machines?
