Great place, great vibe

Stopped in for coffee and a snack. Great place, chill vibes, big couches to read in... Just had eggs, but were great! Wishes we had been here sooner!

Pois Cafe is a cafe where you immediately feel relaxed. Great athmosphere, lovely interior with books and magazines everywhere and nice music. Only fresh food on the menu, I had a sandwich with brie, beetroot, cucumber and mango-chutney combined with a fresh mango-papaya-lemon smoothie, was great!

Excellent. The food is fresh, interesting and delicious with a decidedly international character. It's the perfect place to stop for lunch and a glass of wine. What appeals more than the food, however, is the incredible atmosphere of the place. Vienna meets Lisbon meets Brooklyn. With huge windows onto the street, beautiful stone arches inside and a motley assortment of... More

This was recommended by the lady whose apartment we were staying in. Loved it. Great decor, nice ambience. I was craving eggs and that's exactly what I got... Nothing fancy, but perfectly fried and delicious. There was bread on the side plus an amazing tall, foamy cafe latte. The whole this cost 6€. I'll probably go back here at least... More

We stopped by here for lunch today. Good location, close to the Cathedral, and I liked the style of the restaurant. Service was good, and we got our drinks fairly quickly but I was a bit underwhelmed with the food. My husband had a bacon salad which he enjoyed but my goats cheese salad was a let down. The goats...

Lovely restaurant with good food and friendly relaxed staff. Cozy feeling due to the mixed furniture, lots of books, old walls and high ceiling. The staffs takes the time for you and are very helpful to explain the food on their menu. We had a Mozart sandwich, daily brunch with yoghurt and fresh juice and home made soup. Good place... More

Very informal cafe-bistrot with good quality of food an good service. It is always packed so if you are more than two, make a reservation. You will have to share a table or "corner" with very nice people. I had quiche that was excellent! The fruit juices are really natural.

Seat at the big table and you are sure to meet a Portuguese artist, an Italian teacher or a French scientist...this cafe has a bit of Venice (California) flavor, casual-trendy. The food is good and affordable.

The outside seating belies what's going on inside--come into the cool stone and arched dining area to find a sitting area replete with couch and easy chairs, tables, bookcases and assorted lamps. Situated across from the Se Cathedral in Alfama, it's a nice stop while touring. And when you come again, bring a book or dvd to trade! Wifi is... More
