Spain & Portugal: Evora Part 2

Spain & Portugal: Evora Part 2

. 2 min read

I’m sorry it has taken me a while to get this final post published from my series about our trip to Spain and Portugal.

Ever since we returned from Europe in June, things have been CRAZY hectic around here. It’s fun to look back and remember the vacation we took in May. Seems like a lifetime ago!

As I mentioned in my last post, we stayed at a fabulous B&B called Albergaria Do Calvário.  It was at this little gem of a place that we were served the most sumptuous hotel breakfast ever — every morning.

Breakfast in Evora, Portugal

I just had to share it with you guys!

Good thing I was still RRARFing (“rehabilatative rest and aggressive refeeding”) while we were there because all we did was eat and rest and maybe do a little walking and then eat some more.

Pastured eggs (the hotel owner goes out of his way to procure them from a local farm), freshly squeezed organic juice and apple juice, homemade bread, and local honey and jam.

Not only did they have an amazing spread, but they will make you anything you want — omelettes, scrambled eggs, you name it.

Here’s a peek at the breakfast buffet at Albergaria Do Calvário:

Local ham and cheese, organic tomatoes, local olive oil and sea salt.

Freshly squeezed organic juices and local, homemade yogurt.

Homemade cakes and sweet breads.

Homemade frittata and olive bread.

An array of local and organic fruit.

Homemade bread.

I am sorry to say, this post is the last in my series on Portugal and Spain.

I guess it’s time to take another trip!
