So on a Sunday morning we decided to go there for brunch/lunch. But what... More

Located next to the Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), great breakfast place, quality coffee, clean toilets, good service, little terrasse outside, free wifi, it's the perfect coffee shop to start your morning in Old Lisbon before starting your visit.
