Casa Inglesa


Casa Inglesa


Despite its name, a very traditional Portuguese café and pastelaria (cake shop).


Cool, dark interiors, wonderfully caught in a time warp, circa 1922. Popular with locals - always a good sign.

What to eat?

Snacks, cakes and pastries.

What to drink?

Amazing coffee.

Insider knowledge

Next door-but-one they also own a second pastelaria, with an even bigger selection of cakes and pastries to take away. The diet just ended!

Anything that clients should know about?

Lots of tourists sit at the tables on the square, so go inside to get the authentic feel of the place.

The inspirational bit?

A haven of calm in a bustling area of the city. Like stepping back in time. The best pasteis de natas (creamy custard cakes) in the Algarve.

About 100 covers inside, with another 40 or so outside.


2, Largo Manuel Telxeira Gomes, Portimao. On the main square, facing the harbour. A local landmark - ask anybody for directions.


Coffee and cakes for two: approx €3

Opening times

Early morning until late in the evening.
