Gorgeous cafe with vintage charm serving up some incredible desserts. Worth a visit if you’re in Lisbon. We tried the pastel de nata on both visits and loved them!
Some of the best egg-based traditional Portuguese pastries in Lisbon. It can be very busy but if you get a place to sit it will certainly feel cosy and comforting in the winter.
This cafe was great with good food, prices, and service. It’s one of the oldest pastry shops in Lisbon and was the official confectioner of the royal family. We went upstairs for the table service. You can do self serve or table service. We got the shrimp rissol, chicken quiche, tuna sandwich, and pork sandwich. Ya we did it up. We also got a bunch of desserts including the donut, chocolate moose, chocolate cake, and a spread of the tiny chocolate cookies and chocolates from downstairs. The sandwiches were good, not mind blowing but perfect for the price made with fresh ingredients. The quiche and rissol were delicious, definitely a must try. They were rich, flavourful and moist. The desserts. Oh mama the desserts. Donut was moist with a heavier cream. My wife’s exact words for the mousse was “maybe the best of my life.” The black Forrest was different than what I’m used to. Not as much cherry, more light and airy sort of cake. The chocolates melt in your mouth. Super moist and not too rich. The almond clusters were made with natural almonds, you can tell, and chocolate. Highly recommend you make a stop here.
Good cakes, good coffee, what else is there to say? The location of this centenary establishment is right in the center of downtown Lisbon and together with the home made great cakes is definitely a place to take a break of all the walking up and down the city.
An historic cafe in Lisbon. Old style wood paneling and good pastries I went there for breakfast and that was perfect if you sit down to have a coffee or tea and have a coffee.
