Dalena Tortas Finas
Whenever the urge to nourish your sweet tooth starts to take hold, a bit of a cake indulgence at Dalena Tortas Finas will always be the perfect answer.
With various shops throughout Recife, Dalena's ever-growing list of cakes and pies provides its lovers with an assured sense of satisfaction. Crispy bases, velvety fillings and flawless, satin chocolate toppings have given it the top position in the leading Brazilian gastronomy magazine awards: Best cake shop in town since 2005.
Dalena's most popular treat, the Torta Alemã combines layers of fine biscuits and a smooth, melt-in-the-mouth buttery cream, generously topped with dark chocolate ganache. Rich, American-style cheesecakes, starring the likes of chocolate hazelnut and sweet chilli jam, will win over any resistance to the cheese and sugar mixture.
Stunning cake shelves unit with a display of savoury pastries accompanied by a special list of coffee drinks, while an additional variety of salads and sandwiches are offered at the Boa Viagem and Rosa e Silva shops.
In total, there are 6 shops in Recife - Boa Viagem, Rosa e Silva, Espinheiro and in the Recife, Rio Mar and Boa Vista Shopping centres.
Fears of ruining your diet are a thing of the past: Low-fat and sugar-free options include chocolate mousse and cappuccino cheesecake. Overindulgence allowed!
