“Gem of a cafe”
Review of bean17

Ranked #1 of 6 Coffee & Tea in Loule
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 July 2018 via mobile

Strolling around Loule with the guv’nor, we chanced upon a cafe with a twist, run by a really friendly Dutch couple.

First, the coffee....excellent taste and choice. The young lady barista clearly knows her beans, this was one of the best coffees I’ve had. Barista is a much abused word in most coffee shops, this lady delivered magnificently, just as a barista should.

Next the food....well, the Mrs simply salivated over and raved about the homemade scones with jam & cream (anything to keep her happy) and I was more than happy with the fruit & muesli.

Then the twist....the lady barista’s very very lucky husband was offering olive oil and salt tastings and weaving a silky tale as an accompaniment. The choice, quality and tastes were again superb and unsurprisingly the Mrs instructed me to make a couple of purchases.

Great decor and good, friendly service topped it all off.

This place deserves to succeed, definitely worth a visit.

We found this little café by accident as we were strolling through the market hall. It is very cosy, tastefully furnished and makes the best coffee we had in Portugal so far! We even came back to Loulé JUST for another coffee in this lovely café. Strongly recommend! ♡

This is a lovely little cafe. The coffee is excellent. A very relaxing environment, with jazz blues playing. They also do a very interesting line of olive oil. The owners are very friendly.

Very pleased that this lived up to be the best coffee in Loule in fact it is the best coffee I have tasted since arriving in the area nearly 3 weeks ago so well done.

The shop belongs to a very nice dutch lady. Coffee is very good and that comes from someone who is very spoiled in this regards. They also have scones with clotted cream - unfortunately we were already too full to try :-( also very nice interior. Located directly inside the market building
