Good coffee and cinnamon bun to die for. Light dough. Not too sweet and a hint of cinnamon. Did not go into the garden today as it was too cold. Have done in the past and Quentin has provided blanjets and hot water bottles.

Visited for a coffee, quiche and cake, excellent as always, the chef is to be commended. To be good is difficult, to be consistent is hard so to be consistently good is impressive. Keep up the good work.

I am glad you enjoyed your cakes and coffee, Suzanne. We have served Lavazza coffee since we opened the shop, about 6 years ago, and our customers have always loved it! See you soon!

Casa De Castro is a lovely coffee shop and patisserie run by a Franco-Brazilian couple that has build its strong reputation on the quality of its homemade cakes and savouries.
Beautiful garden, excellent coffee and jazzy music come together to make Casa De Castro a delightful place to have a pleasant and relaxing moment
