After his 1885 arrival in the port of Horta, Faial, on the first solo circumnavigation, Joshua Slocum wrote, "Islanders are always the kindest people in the world, and I met none anywhere kinder than the good hearts of this place."

Always busy, always charming, always appealing! Great on a holiday afternoon even with a gray sky and a windy day... Can't say the G&T was that good: by the time I ordered, I had no idea there was a "special" and the regular was a bit watery for my taste.
