Food
“Die vermutlich beste Konditorei der Insel, durchgehend geöffnet, in Ribeira Grande. Der Mittagstisch ist nur Durchschnitt, aber die Kuchen und Plätzchen sind einzigartig. Es gibt eine Filiale am großen Hauptplatz von Ribeira Grande, wo man draußen sitzen kann. Unbedingt probieren: "Pão de Deus" (Gottesbrot) - eine Art Hefe-Rohrnudel mit Kokosmasse darauf. Der Name ist Programm!”
