“Generally excellent albeit a little healthy!”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Clearly a little more upmarket than most, Lena's offers a healthier alternative to the mundane opposition. I had a very good brunch but thought that the scambled egg was a little tasteless. I almost gave it 5 stars... and maybe I should have?? We ate there twice during our week in Praia so that is praise indeed.
Recommend you try it!

“So fresh.....”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

One of the nicest, on the street, places for snacks in Praia da Rocha. Everything made to order - lovely white table cloths - very clean

“Great”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

Went here nearly every day for food. Although its on the pricey side its great honest food.

English breakfast is lovely. Crepes are to die for.

A nice little café with outdoor seating.
Wouldn't recommend the smoothies or the orange juice. Over priced and not great.
