Tavi Tavi


Tavi is a historical pastry shop, opened in 1935 and bought by the Paiva family in 2006. José Paiva and his experience of more than 40 years are the reason for the success of Tavi, which has been known for innovation – from modernizing the space to the proposal of new flavors.

In addition to the traditional pastry shop, new recipes, more delicate products and contemporary desserts are also being constantly introduced, in family and individual portions, to try at the pastry shop, to take away or to offer on special occasions. 

Another bet of Tavi has been Gastronomy. Together with the pastry shop products, we now have a restaurant service and a menu that values a modern cuisine and an original interpretation of some traditional Portuguese specialties

You can enjoy an early breakfast, a business or relaxing lunch, a refreshing light meal at the end of the day or even some well served tapas to anticipate the dinner, anywhere within the pastry shop space.

The lounge space, with a panoramic view of the ocean and Foz inviting shore, is a comfortable, harmonious and functional place, to enjoy anytime and everyday of the year. 

Tavi and Foz

"(...) Foz belongs to me like a garment that dresses me inside, like an immemorial skin for which time is important and not important at all." (Miguel Veiga)

We are located at Rua da Senhora da Luz, in Foz Velha. By the sea, we can hear the seagulls screeching and the waves crashing in the sand. Early in the morning is the sea breeze that inspires us everday. If you step in, be prepared to delight your senses … 

A long time ago, Foz do Douro was a privileged place for the famous hot baths, where the most renowned houses were located. Bathing in the sea was something collective – for the less prudish – or individual for the primmer ones and, among rocks, if the dress was not lifted up above the ankles.

But to bathe, first you needed to choose the transportation. This was decided according to the pockets. For the aristocrats there were the barouches, chaises, chars-à-bancs. For the families with several members but with less money, the wagon, with no passenger limit, was more than enough. Horses were fashionable back then, althout the donkey was more used.

To pass the time, people went for a ride, to the lightouse of Senhora da Luz or to the Cantareira to watch the boats arriving and to buy fresh fish. There were also the famous jericadas, which were nothing more than donkey races.

Rua da Senhora da Luz was the preferred choice to go shopping. There we could find woollen mills, butcher shops, tailor shops, barber shops, shoe stores, charcoal factories, restaurants and pastry shops, notably of course, Tavi, the quintessential pastry shop of Foz.

The times and trends may have changed. The winds of change blew here but they couldn’t take away the soul of Foz. New and sophisticated shops were opened, the hobbies are more extreme, the dusty streets are no more and today the latest car models can be seen along the famous Avenida Brasil.

But if we sharpen our senses, we can notice that everything and nothing changed. The seagulls are still screeching, the murmur of the water comforts us, the morning fog surrounds us and whispers in our ears - “You are at Foz, the eternal and immutable Foz. "
