this cafe is a fortunate fusion between a good old irish pub perfectly well blended with the original cabo verde style architecture/colors chosen for its decoration as well the location of the bar is optimal because it is located on the corner of the street that is less charged with the locals trying to sell things yet there is a very nice gallery right across from it selling local souvenirs and hand craft from senegal

I arrived in Santa Maria traveling alone and I had read about this place on trip advisor and thought that it looked a good place to start. Oh how lucky I was, soon got talking to some others traveling alone and then Amy the owner of the bar along with her husband Kieron they suggested that I go along with Blinkey who is a local tour organiser. Amy had a direct phone for Blinkey, called her and she arranged to meet me the next morning to give me a tour of Santa Maria. I probably visited Tam Tam at least once a day, the food is good and the ambiance is comfortable. They had a great St Patrick's day as Amy and Kieron are Irish although they do not call it an Irish Bar. This is a great place and you should check it out it is a little tourist information office as well as watering hole and restaurant. I cannot thank Amy and Kieron enough for their hospitality.
