Two popular names from the central Algarve come together in a fabulous new venture… and YOU are the beneficiary! Lewis Andrews Lifestyle Store and Couleur France restaurant have joined forces for the new LA Lifestyle Café by Couleur France. Fresh, fun and fabulous food for friends and family at breakfast and lunch.
LA Lifestyle Café is just across the street from Apolónia on Avenida 5 de Outubro in Almancil. Lewis Andrews Lifestyle Store has reconfigured their entry space and adjacent shop to create a lovely al fresco garden café. A mural image of a vineyard camouflages the main wall and large market umbrellas hang overhead. It’s a welcoming space for a quick bite, or a long afternoon chat between friends.
The café itself is in the trustworthy hands of the fine team at Couleur France. They deliver the same quality contemporary cuisine and exemplary service of their restaurant to this more casual setting. They have chosen Austria-native Irene to lead the kitchen. Formerly at Michelin star-awarded São Gabriel, Irene produces delightful salads, delicious sandwiches and decadent desserts which, no doubt, have guests returning time-after-time.
Some key selections from the menu include:
■ Eggs Benedict – toasted brioche, poached eggs, ham or smoked salmon, spinach and hollandaise sauce
■ Pancakes with fresh strawberries, cream and maple syrup
■ Homemade granola with yogurt, honey and fresh fruit
■ Walnut brioche
■ Shredded confit of duck salad with pea, mint and onion foam
■ Prawn and mango salad with pesto sauce and sliced almonds
■ Mediterranean couscous with sautéed vegetables and sour cream
■ Two mini-burgers in a bun, with garlic and curry sauce.
■ Sandwich of curried chicken marinated in spices, onion and coriander

LA Lifestyle Café also offers plates of tapas to share among friends. Cheese platter with crackers and homemade mango & pink pepper chutney, and meats platter with homemade grissini make for an enjoyable afternoon.
Pair your meals with specialty juice blends such as the “Sweet Moment,” made of papaya, mango and ginger, or top shelf cocktails like “Pink Summer,” made of pink port, lime and sprite. The LA Lifestyle Café also makes non-alcoholic cocktails for the kids.
