We found the restaurant just walking by Cafe Vasco da Gamma in the Hermes Building and wanted a hot coffee with Portugese tarts. Stayed and had good natale & moka. Seems like a place that will get busy at rush meal times.

Having just been to Portugal, we were keen to try this place to see if it lived up to the name. It does. Excellent coffee, good pastries including pastel de nata. We had a lovely breakfast and enjoyed the atmosphere.

The restaurant was advertises really good. The food was as advertised. The service is also good. The chairs are kind of uncomfortable and it’s a skinny restaurant but that’s easy to look past. The vibe is good. The prices are fair. Enjoy.

Stayed at Mariott on Peel street and visited twice during our 2 day stay. Right across the street. Perfect location for a great morning. Great atmosphere. Friendly service. We had cappuccinos, americanos, chocolate croissants and almond croissants. All fresh and delicious. Will return!
