Florianópolis: Cupcakes at Fairyland
Fairyland is a cupcake shop located in Santo Antônio de Lisboa. That neighborhood in Florianópolis with the amazing Azorean architecture. Here I listed 4 reasons why you should visit this neighborhood while in Florianópolis. As I told you in that post I didn't find any restaurant around there to have lunch, because I'm not a big fan of sea food and that is the most common type of food there. But I found this other place, a cupcake shop. And today's post is about it.
For starters I have to say that this place is cute. It isn't a place with only one type of table and chairs and they have an indoor and an outdoor spaces. The day we went there was a holiday and the place was full. We had to wait some minutes to be able to sit. Our table was a small round table with armchairs indoors, very comfy. In front of us there was a bigger table with a couch and two armchairs. This is what I meant about this place being different and with different types of tables.
Also in the indoor space there is a shelf with many books and objects giving the impression they put a good effort to decorate the place to be like a fairyland, as the name says. On walls there are also frames with sayings like: "Keep calm and have a cupcake". I always pay attention on those things because I love thematic places.
OK, let me talk about the cupcakes. There are 14 different cupcake flavors, all with the same price R$ 5,00 (US$ 1.37) for the small ones and R$ 8,00 (US$ 2.19) for the big ones. The bigger version is not available for all the cupcake flavors. Their cupcakes have fillings 😍. As you can see from the picture, we ordered 4 cupcakes in the small version. From left to right you can see: Bicho de Pé a strawberry flavored cupcake, Chocomallow = chocolate + marshmallow, Red Velvet a vanilla flavored cupcake and Choconozes = chocolate + nuts.
I am a person that always struggles to find a favorite thing, because I like many things equally, but this time I had a favorite one: Bicho de Pé. Really, this is now my favorite cupcake of all, not only in Fairyland, but in life. I simply loved it and recommend it veeery much.
Well, the specialty of the shop is cupcake, but they also have other desserts like cheesecake with raspberry jam R$ 12,00 (US$ 3.29) , waffle with ice cream R$ 18,00 (US$ 4.93) , brownie R$ 12,00 (US$ 3.29) among others. And there is also sandwiches R$ 21,00 (US$ 5.75) or R$ 23,50 (US$ 6.43) and other snacks. We ordered the mini Brazilian cheese bread R$ 9,00 (US$ 2.47) , it was good enough, but since this is a typical Brazilian food I recommend you to eat it from another place, especially if it is your first time trying cheese bread, so you could have a better experience.
Lastly, there are the beverages, many types of hot beverages and coffees, and cold coffees. Besides sodas, water, juices and beers. We ordered a Coke R$ 6,00 (US$ 1.65) and an Italian ice tea with raspberry flavor R$ 9,00 (US$ 2.47) . I liked very much the ice tea, I have never drunk it before. It was very refreshing, but also very sweet.
