“Delicious warm scones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We had lunch at the Loja do Cha twice and the highlight was the scones with lemon curd. The salads are fine, nothing special but the tea selection is very expansive and the coffee is good too. Service is good and a pleasant square in which to stop for a bite to eat.

If like me when you are abroad you crave a decent cup of tea this is the place to come! Huge array of all different teas and fresh cakes, scones and snacks in the lovely square

“Good value snack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Lovely situation for people watching. It was really nice to have lemon curd with a scone. The little tea chests for payment were a nice touch.

“Great tea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Read reviews for Loja do Cha and decided to go there. We love good tea and this tea house has lots of choice from Earl Grey to Darjeeling and Assam to White tea. All loose leaf tea.
There are assorted cakes and scones which come with lemon curd or jam and cream. Situated in a quiet square just along from the Cathedral, perfect!
