Parents in or planning to visit Sao Tome and Principe,
Want to know where is the spot to take your kids? Here it is – Café Park. Talk about fun! This place is a new spot in the island. It is located inside the city’s Popular Park on the back side.
They transformed a bus into a movie theater, with popcorn, cotton candy, and other cool stuff. They have a place where you can race toy cars, race with small bikes, pretend you are actually driving a car, eat cotton candy, swing, take pictures with the Incredibles, and eat delicious food.
From hot dogs to traditional dishes, Café Park has it all. I first ordered my normal tosta mista and sumol maracuja, but Mom and her friend, Djamila, ordered gizzards and conch (búzio do mar), it tasted so good I licked my fingers. The only things you must keep in mind is that service is very slow, we waited long to pay our bill. Also, if you are younger than 12 years old, you can’t go inside the racetrack with the driving simulator, what was actually a bummer, since is just a simulator, you are not actually driving. But Mom and Djamila explained to me why I couldn’t do it. Because of all that, they got four starts, and that’s that ladies and gents.
The Kritic says:
- 4 Starts
- The food was delicious
- The employees were great, but service was very slow
- Sao Tome money is complicated, but I guess the prices were alright. Mom kept ordering things, which means it wasn’t expensive
- They had so much entertainment for kids and adults that the place is absolutely awesome
- The place was clean and had no mosquitoes
So many things to chose from the menu.

My Mommy loved the cotton candy.
Fresh coconut water and my Sumol maracujá (That’s Passion fruit in Portuguese)
Ripe plantain chips. I love it!

My favorite, tosta mista (toasted sandwich with butter, cheese and ham)
