This tiny airport, operated by SATA airlines, offers a simple counter café in the unsecured central waiting area between bathrooms. They offer various liquors, pasteis de nata (and other pastries), plus coffee at a counter bar with several tables. Using a two-group Fiamma machine, they pull shots of Sical (what else) with a paleish, thin crema with white streaks. It has the usual Sical flavor of mild pepper and some spice, and it is somewhat diluted - particularly for its shot size. ?0.80 - which is a bit of a surprising, steep mark-up by local standards.
