Great cafe at the top of the market. Even though we just had a tea and coffee (on a regular basis!) the staff were nice and friendly. Really nice views and lovely atmosphere We will be back!

After spending time round the market it is well worth going a further floor up to the roof terrace and relax in this cafe. Can be very busy but a great atmosphere. Only had time for one of their fruit cocktails but it was well worth it. Full of fresh fruit in a large glass. Very smooth and delicious. A... More

My wife discovered this café/restaurant on our previous visit to Funchal and I was somewhat dubious about visiting a market café as they are, in England, often of doubtful quality. This restaurant was a real eye opener! Situated in the open air on the top floor of the market, surrounded by semi tropical plants this is the ideal place to... More

Came here for a sit down having been around the market. Service was a bit slow but not a problem as we weren't in a rush. Coffee was alright but there are nicer coffees to be had.

We love the workers fish market and on the second floor came across this lovely terrace cafe, nice seating and tables with covered area and lovely plants. We had a really nice liquor coffee, staff very friendly and has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. We saw lovely snacks and salads being served. Highly recommend a visit here.

Found this by chance when visiting the Mercado dos Lavrodores. Great coffee, great cake (ask for the house special recipe apple cake) and really friendly staff! Our favourite Funchal cafe.
