Really a nice place to have a "curto" portuguese way of calling the espresso ....italian style....short.... the place is near the mian square of Braga int he historical Street. The atmosphere is good and you have a side view of the square, nice small french tables outside make the place like an old french bistrot

Good good coffee - and no UHT but real milk in my Pingo, a shot of espresso with a dash of milk (aka machiatto) in a plave where the shoe shine man comes around so please do not wear your Nikes if you want the whole experience.
