Very nice

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... read more

We came to "Pois Café" for late lunch around 4pm and the place was packed with people. Neverthess we could find a nice table with two chairs and got served quickly. 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

This cafe was opposite our apartment and we had both coffee during the day and drinks at night. I found the place had a lovely calm atmosphere, friendly staff and drinks at reasonable places. We didn't eat here but saw food being delivered and it did look really good. The cafe does have outside seating but as it is in... More

I really liked this place, it's one of the best places I've eaten during my trip to Lisbon, even if I got there quite late for a brunch, the brunch menu was still available, the soup was amazing and the rest of the menu was very tasty too. The stuff is kind and helpful, they speak English very well. There's... More

Walked by the café while it was still closed. The owner welcomed me in and offered me a double espresso to ¨wake me up¨. The place has an excellent atmosphere. Perfect if your looking for a place to sit and work.

We have been to Café Pois a few times for a coffee or a drink and enjoyed the casual, arty atmosphere - the odd levels of sofas, bar tables and long tables where guests use a corner and share the table and/or sofa with other guest. So on a Sunday morning we decided to go there for brunch/lunch. But what... More
