One of the best things about being in the Azores is the fresh, locally produced, farm to table food.

And what you will enjoy at Solar Branco 1885 is no different. At breakfast, you can choose from fresh orange juice, smoothies made from seasonal fruit as well as supplies for a simple continental breakfast of freshly baked bread, local eggs and a selection of local farm cheeses.

Sāo Miguel has a wonderful array of dining options across the island, and we encourage you to get out and savour them!  Please speak to us to get recommendations and help with bookings.  We can also help to organize your transport to and from dinner.

If you’d like to eat on site, are a number of catering facilities on offer to you during your stay here. These include:

The main house has a large country kitchen.  All self contained units have their own kitchen areas.  We provide basics such as oil, salt and pepper.

BBQ area, “The Smokin’ Pug”:
Located in the garden for all guests to use.

Industrial kitchen:

This separate kitchen area is where we cater for special dinners for guests and hold sausage making classes (advanced booking essential for both).  We also have a pantry of staples such as dried pasta and rice that you can purchase for self-catering.

We are also working on having our own bee hives for honey as well as chickens for our very own eggs. As a guest of Solar Branco 1885 you are more than welcome to help yourself to any of the produce in the garden and grounds as you wish.
