“Wonderful cafe!”
Review of Ilha do Mel Cafe

Ilha do Mel Cafe
Price range: US$5 - US$30
Description: Located on Ilha do Mel next to the lighthouse of the Shells, Ilha do Mel Café operates for 16 years in the same place. The ambiance is rustic, warm and cozy decorated with paintings by local painters, Murano vases and liana crafts. We serve special coffees and we have the only espresso machine on the whole island so we have cappuccinos and mochas besides delicious pies like cheesecake and the famous Maracolate (Maracuja (passion fruit) mousse with melted chocolate). From hot dishes we serve spaghetti and a wide variety of pastries, sandwiches and other delicacies.

Delicious desserts, great açaí and the best Iced Coffee we'd had in a long time! The staff was also super friendly and flexible!

Simple and unpretentious place with an amazing atmosphere. The food is good, nothing special, but is a very good value for money. It is situated in one of the most traditional Inns of the island.
