1. Al-Gharb Coffee Roasters in Albufeira
Al-Gharb Coffee Roasters is a specialty coffee roastery, a coffee shop, and a brunch restaurant in Albufeira. We visited this place twice and both times we got the last available table.
It is usually busy, but you can always wait for a table. We bought their coffee beans as well! They serve toasts, pancakes, eggs, granola, burritos as well as açai bowls and other brunch dishes from their menu.
You can check their menu on their website. They have tables inside and outside as well and you can park your car at the side of the road on the street they are located on. This is one of the most popular breakfast spots in Algarve for sure!

You can get toasts with avocado, eggs, and salmon as well as baked snacks, oats, and waffles. Their focus is definitely on coffee and you are definitely guaranteed quality coffee here. Many people come here to work on their laptops.

One of the best coffees in Algarve is definitely served in Coffee & Waves surf/coffee shop in Lagos. Also – you will be met with the kindest smiles and nicest people.
This is not a restaurant where you can get an endless menu – their options are rather limited, but still, you can get some nice breakfast toasts and other snacks. However, coffee alone is worth a visit!
