Happy Birthday Gelados & Companhia

One of Carvoeiro’s most successful businesses, the family-run Gelados & Companhia is celebrating its 10th anniversary on July 26.

Having first opened its doors in a small shop across the road, today, the ice-cream shop between Rua dos Pescadores and Rua do Barranco is famous with tourists and locals alike for its delicious homemade ice-cream – with 80 different recipes developed in-house, depending on the season and the fruit available, favourites include the Kinder Bueno and the traditional Arroz Doce (sweet rice).

Innovation is key for this family , and after introducing frozen yoghurt to Carvoeiro, this year they can proudly say that everything is 100% homemade, including the shop’s crepes and now the waffles.         “We made hundreds of waffles to make sure the recipe was just right,” said daughter Ana Conduto, whose parents travel to Italy every year for inspiration.
