Azores - Does Furnas smell like sulphur? Also, breakfast spot in PD?

I know this sounds a little picky but I am sensitive to smell and have read about the sulphur odor at the calderas near Furnas lake. I am contemplating lodging in Furnas and want to make sure that the odor doesn't pervade the area.

Also, we will have about 4 hours between flights in Sao Miguel (arriving at 7 am from Boston) so thought we might go into town to grab breakfast instead of hanging out at the airport. We will have luggage so I want to have an idea of where we are going instead of wandering around with suitcases in tow.

Sulphur odor

No Furnas does not smell of the stuff, but anywhere near the hot pools smells a bit odd
