Went to the gorgeous island of Maio for 9 days and came across this gem of a snack bar. Open in evenings also serving tasty snacks and home cooked foods. Well worth a visit and would definately recommend the homemade cakes. Run by a friendly German lady who is happy to give you any info you may need.
