Name: Guarita

Location: Praia da Vitoria, Angra do Heroismo, Multiple other locations around the island

Cuisine: Varied, General, Grocery Store

English Speaking Staff: Some do speak English

General Information: Both stores are complete grocery stores with bakery, meat, fish, and produce, along with typical perishable and non-perishable items.  While food labels are in Portuguese, knowing some basic food words will help understand the basic nutrition information or potential food allergies.  It nice to have options that include local food products or Portuguese products in general.  There are some good choices out there if you look.  Locations may have other kitchenwares and car care section.

Praia: Located across from the high school, next to the gas station, parking lot available.  May also enter from back side on side street behind building.  Good sized store, nice bakery, and staff seems friendly.

Angra:  To get here, go like you would to get to the Angra Modela, and at that circle get off and head down the hill (where the pottery shop is located) towards the down town area.  It will be on the left hand side.  Smaller store, less friendly staff.  Not accomadating to anyone taking pictures inside and you will likely be stopped by security.  Decent looking selection of products.

    There is also a very large Guarita in Terra do Pao (sp?) if you head towards Terra Cha from Angra and keep going in that direction you will run right into it. It has a parking garage where they will wash your car below it. The selection there is GREAT and I prefer it over Angra’s Modelos.

      Thanks, I don’t think I have ever been to that location. I’ll have to check it out. I know there is one on the way to Quinta do Martelo, but I can’t remember which town that is…maybe Sao Mateus.
