We were a bit underwhelmed by this place. Good location. But tables and floor weren't clean and the food was nothing special. Everyone else there were tourists.

The coffee shop Café Mindelo located in a large room on the ground floor has a polished wooden floor and six French windows facing the historic city center. It combines the extroverted spirit of the streets of Mindelo with a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, creating proximity between public and private spaces. Its doors are open from 7:00 am to 0:00 am, offering a variety of coffee products, pastry, snacks (locally called bafas) breakfast, lunch and dinner, creating a cuisine that blends local flavours with other influences and tastes. Café Mindelo is a central meeting point in the daily life of the city, well-known for both its outstanding "Catchupa" that fills the room already in the morning and the cultural events, live music (every day) and festivals that liven up the night.
