  • Lovely shop with fascinating history given by the friendly shop owner (multi lingual) on the local products sold. We bought carob honey, almond stuffed figs, chilli oil and honeyed almonds...

  • We found this charming little shop on our completely spontaneous trip to Estoi on the first rainy day in Algarve. A definition of hidden gem! Very careful selection of local products, all beautifully presented and lovingly packaged. We were very well looked after the owner who told us interesting background stories about his products and offered a homemade carob cake. The cake was delicious and we bought the main ingredient he sells there, carob powder. I have just made the cake at home (recipe provided by the lovely owner!) Sooooo nice! Almost as good as the one we tried in the shop! (I'll get there with a bit more practice!) Thank you very much for this personal touch and to help us create some lovely memories of Estoi and Portugal. We appreciate that very much! We will be back if we're around again!
  • Great selection of local products, some of them are also self made (which is why the shop smelled very nice). Friendly shop owners who gave detailed information about all the products.
