One of the best parts about breakfast in the Algarve is that there’s something for everyone, especially as this corner of Portugal is popular with tourists from all over the world. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, make sure to visit at least one of these amazing venues when in the area.

Doçaria Almeixar

Calling everyone with a sweet tooth: this is the place for you. Doçaria Almeixar was named after the establishment’s specialty in creating cakes, hence doçaria, and the region’s traditional way of drying fruits, called almeixar. Located in Albufeira, this is a convenient stop that’s also family-friendly, dishing up everything from waffles, crêpes and French toast, to coffee and fresh orange juice. Doçaria Almeixar serves lunch as well.

If the name wasn’t a great enough indicator that Best Waffles is an excellent breakfast spot, its location by the ocean is perfection itself. A couple of the menu items to try while there include toasties and waffles (with ice cream on top), which taste extra amazing when eaten on the café‘s terrace near Quarteira’s beach.

It should come as no surprise that a B&B would serve some of the area’s best breakfast meals, and Winniehill B&B has been declared as one of the top choices in the Algarve. Book in for a night’s stay at this 100-year-old farmhouse, and you can feast the next morning on delights including sumptuous seasonal fruits and freshly homebaked bread.
