The cuisine of the island is not limited to savoury dishes: here are some sweets for your taste buds.
A kind of sweet and popular bread for feast days and popular social events! Whether fresh from the oven, toasted and/or accompanied with butter, cheese or jam, it's hard to stop eating at one slice.
A typical sweet associated with Carnival and special events, this confectionery is similar to Algarvian “filhós”, a fried pastry, topped with a mixture of icing sugar and cinnamon. Mandatory!
"Fofas da Povoação"
Do you like chocolate? Don’t want to waste time counting calories? A cake with an eclair-like pastry, a vanilla filling with lots of butter, sugar and a shy strand of chocolate on top. Yummi
"Queijadas da Vila [Franca]"
