Top choice sweets in Príncipe Real, Santos & Estrela

Few chocolates command such undying devotion, but this family-run transplant from São Tomé and Príncipe elicits freakish enthusiasm for its thin artisan chocolate bars. Indeed, in ginger, orange, sea-salt and pepper, sesame, and toffee and sea-salt varieties, this is heart-stoppingly good stuff. Try a free sample with the excellent espresso (€1) before committing.

Both the cacao (from Venezuela, Bolivia and Dominica) and coffee (from São Tomé) are roasted in-house. Family members run the show and are always willing to give you the lowdown on their sweet homespun journey.
