My husband loves a fish market, food market, fresh fruit and veg etc so when we wandered around the market for what seemed like an age I was v pleased to notice this open air cafe situated upstairs. We only had drinks but others around were snacking and all looked good. Menu reasonably priced. Really nice to sit in the... More

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.

Lovely lunch and drinks. Friendly and professional staff. Hidden upstairs at the back of the market. Make an effort to find this lovely cafe and relax with a drink.

Above the fruit and flower market, this outdoor café is full of flowers and plants in planters – a garden in the centre of Funchal to sit in. We each had fresh juices – passion fruit and orange and, where fresher, than within yards of a fruit market. Open same time as market – not Sundays.

This cafe is on a surprisingly spacious terrace above the Market and the large amount of potted greenery gives a delightful restful flavour. We have stopped in twice at lunchtime and even though it was busy the service was quick and cheerful, and a raised hand across the tables brought 2 more beers almost immediately. The toasted sandwiches were very... More

The terrace is beautiful with lots of flowering plants, and plenty of space between the tables. It's an oasis of calm amid the hustle and bussel of the busy market! We had coffee which was lovely, other people were having... More

Great place for a drink and a sandwich. Try the cheese and ham toastie one of the best I have had. The service was great despite only having one waiter working his socks off!

Despite having visited the market several times over the years, we had never seen this cafe before. Friendly staff, nice coffee and it is a very pleasant place to sit after the hustle and bustle of the market. We will return next time we are in Funchal.

Stopped for drinks whilst at the market. Average Funchal prices for beer €4.5 for large. Good service.
