Perfect spot to get coffee and a pastry for breakfast before starting your day in Lisbon. It’s very close to a nice viewpoint and the tram stop.

Got off the tram to catch the viewpoint across the road and saw this place was full of locals. We wanted a snack and coffee so popped in. Good quality tea ad coffee with freshly baked pastel di nata. Very nice spot to sit in...the window and watch the trams thunder by,the buses try to avoid cars and trams and also see the tuk tuk drivers stop to show their passengers the view. And what a view including the tiles and gardens of the church. We were lucky to also catch some excellent guitar musicMore

Stopped off for a quick meal on a rainy day exploring Lisbon. Seemed to be full of locals so we gave it a go. All of our meals were less than €5 and although the menu doesn't offer a huge range food, it was filling...and tasty with plenty of fresh salad.More

The pastries were cold and not so tasteful. We asked the croquettes and you get just 1 little cold croquette for 1.50 euros

I was on my way to Castelo de S. Jorge first thing in the morning, and I hadn't yet had breakfast. With an eye out for a shop where I could duck in for a coffee and pastry, I noticed Pastelaria Varanda de Alfama. The...couple working inside were very friendly, and they served up a delicious espresso and custard tarts that were among the best I tasted in the city. I enjoyed it all while sitting against the window looking out on the street, the passing trams, and the River Tagus. This was the perfect start to my day.More

Popular with tourists and locals alike. Tasty reasonably priced food with a selection of local wines for only a couple of euros a glass. Our ample tuna salads were less than €4 each. Very happy!

Just a brilliant little local place. On the route of the 28 tram and right near a viewpoint, but a great offering at fair prices. For breakfast I had a breaded pork roll, a codcake and a fresh orange juice, all delicious. They also have...custard tarts, ginjinha, all sorts of nice Portuguese things it would be good to introduce people to. The man who served us was kind and polite. Really want to go back.More
