Name: Sopas & Descanso 

AKA: Soup and Salad place

Location: Praia da Vitoria, off the main shopping road

Telephone #: 295 543 449

Cuisine: Soups, Salad, Buffet

English Speaking Staff: Yes

The places not only has good food, but it has a great atmposphere.  The owner is extremely friendly.  She cooks a few entrees, salads and soups daily, and when they run out, that’s it.  Get there early if you want a good selection.  Hot entrees range from beef to chicken to fish, and there is usually a hot starch and maybe a vegetable.  Salads include variations of fruits, beans, pasta salads, and some have meat while others are vegetarian.  The soups are also good.  The portions are generous.  She does have containers to go, but they cost around 50 cents.  The good news is that the food is worth it, and the containers are re-usable.  There is a sandwich menu too, bt it is not really visible.  She makes a variety of grilled sandwiches, like paninis.  Again,  it can’t be stressed enough to get there early for the best selection.

    This is our second tour to Lajes. We are so excited to be back! My friends and I would go to Sopas & Descanso very often back in 2006-2007. We have been here for a month already and today was the first time I revisited the place. I love it!!! This place has fantastic food and very reasonably priced. One correction to your post, if you don’t mind; the restaurant is open from 900 to 1700 on Mon-Fri and 1200-1500 on Saturdays.
    We’ll be back there soon!

      Thanks! I was actually in there last week with family visiting and asked about the new times. She opens for employees at 9 am, the food service starts at noon and runs until 3 pm, and then from 3-5 she has the panini sandwiches. Glad you enjoyed your meal there. Very cool that you get to do a second tour here.
