“Possibly the best coffee in the Algarve ”
Review of bean17

Ranked #1 of 3 Coffee & Tea in Loule
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 February 2018 via mobile

After several days of drinking mediocre coffee across the Algarve, bean17 was a welcome surprise. Not only was it the best coffee we had all trip, it was competitive on a global scale. Carefully sourced and freshly roasted beans made this coffee a delightful treat. And it's conveniently located in one of the main attractions of Loule - the Mercado Municipal - making this an easy stop if you're in town.

It’s not that easy to find real good coffee, capuccino or not to forget creative coffee art in the Algarve. Bean17 coffee and more, a shop in a shop in 11Gourmet at the Mercado in Loulé has it all. Just go for it!

Located in the very nice Mercado de Loulè (Loulé’s market), this little shop totally deserves you to stop and sit down for a coffee.
Good coffee is hard to find and tough to spread. The owner is doing a great job, offering specialty coffee in an old coffee culture that needs a new wind. The shop also offer very good pastry and great products from small local producers.
This is a typical Portuguese café, but better.

This place is a must visit when you are in Loule, very nice atmosphere in this place and really the best coffee I had so far in the Algarve! Good and very friendly service as well!

After two weeks in Portugal we were desperate for a proper capuccino (ie,with real milk, great beans, and no spray cream squirted on the top) and we found the perfect cup ar bean17 (we had to have two each after our deprivation).
The freshly made lemon drizzle cake was delicious too, and Ilona, who welcomed and served us, was delightful.
The cafe, conveniently located at the mercado, was quirkily furnished and stocked with little gifts of Portuguese produce to purchase.
Highly recommended.
