It is in Albert Road that Silvana and Quentin decided in the Summer 2010 to set up their café-patisserie, at the image of the popular “Padarias”, the portuguese Bakeries where you sit and eat straight-from-the-oven pastries and cakes with a coffee.
Inside “Casa de Castro Café”, the cake display captivates all the attention: Danish Pastries, Frangipane Tarts, Chocolate Cakes, Custard Tarts, Cinnamon Buns, and many many more. All these are prepared on the premises by Silvana, using her unique know-how, giving them a taste and texture of the highest quality. For lunch, the visitor will enjoy their speciality Quiche, with its crunchy base and its delicious taste.
The Café remains open during the lockdown for take-aways and Click&Collect. Opening times are Thursday to Saturday 10am to 3pm. So to treat yourself, check out the menu at www.casadecastro.co.uk, and start ordering straight away!
“Casa de Castro Café” can also be found on the Albert Road Directory along with all the shops in Albert Road: www.shappla.com/AlbertRoadSouthsea. The directory is an initiative of Albert Road Traders Association and is supported by Shaping Portsmouth and Portsmouth City Council.
