When we visited Faja dos Vimes, where Cafe Nunes is located, there was no one around. Cafe Nunes was not even open. We rang the bell and the owner, a very nice lady came out and opened the place for us. We sat down to savor the coffee, which I found a bit acidic for my taste. But it was good. The owner took us to the backyard and showed where they grow the coffee. They do not make enough coffee for mass consumption.
Sao Jorge is also known for their cheese, which can be found here in the U.S. They say there are more cows than people in Sao Jorge and cheese factories are open 24 hours a day to keep up with the amount of milk that comes in everyday to produce cheese.
A little store spotted at Faja da Calderia de Santo Cristo, where you can only access by foot or one of those four-wheel bikes. This faja is also known as a surfing spot.
