So good we went back for dinner!

Delicious food possibly the freshest and nicest we've ever had. Fab waiting staff and a friendly atmosphere - what more could you ask for?! Don't miss out on a visit to Pois cafe.

A lovely place where the atmosphere invites you to stay and chat to read for hours. Some couches, some mismatched chairs, some books and friendly staff. Some things are a little expensive for Lisbon but the soup was good and cheap and I enjoyed the cheese bagel. I also had a spritz and found it good value add it was... More

We had the brunch at a Sunday. The waitress made it possible to get a vegeterian version - although we asked really late. But the brunch was a little bit too expensive in our opinion. Nevertheless it is really a lovely place in Lisboa!

Really nice and quick service but then to be honest we only had a beer. People coming out looked very happy after their full on meals though!

We went on a Sunday and found a lot of similar places closed. They serve mainly sandwiches and salads and the brunch has a good selection on ham and cheese. The atmosphere is super nice and the place is very welcoming. However, in my opinion it was slightly overpriced for what it is (again, salad and sandwich) and not very... More

We stopped in today with our 8 month old baby. This is our first holiday with her and we are finding our feet a bit with eating out abroad. The staff were really nice and the food was good. They have high chairs and the staff speak good English. Baby changing is a table, but perfectly adequate if your baby... More

The café offers mainly vegetarian food, different menu options and also Austrian inspired cuisine. I went to for a salad with goats cheese and nuts, my friend had a... More

Tucked away in one of the little streets in the most traditional area of the historic center. It is very close to the Sé Cathedral. Service was always very good and the food too (cakes, sandwiches). They're always baking something fresh. It's a cozy spot with an inviting atmosphere to hang out, relax and regain energy to continue exploring the... More

This cafe is tucked into the side of the hill going up to the Castle and is near the church. The food is very tasty, quite an eclectic range of items on the menu. It's all quite tasty, rustic and, while they aren't massive portions, I was certainly happy with the food. We sat outside on the street on some... More
