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.

Stroll inside The Wander Inn and you’ll find an English pub in the heart of the Algarve. Their brunch menu includes a few favorites like English Breakfast (toast, beans, eggs, sausage, and bacon), omelets, and breakfast rolls. It’s also a great choice when in a group full of people who aren’t sure what they want – some can choose brunch while others can opt for a regular lunch. The Wander Inn is a family-run establishment, so expect meals that taste like they’ve been cooked at home.

Winniehill Bed & Breakfast

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.
