Intimate and friendly, this is a lovely little café. Great service, stylish decor and excellent food. Enjoyed cocktails one evening and a couple of delicious brunches, perched on the pavement in the sun. Delightful.

Next to the Time Out Lisboa market, we chose this for an avocado toast and green juice. Excellent, very friendly service, and a charming respite after a long walk.

After reading the reviews for this place we hung around for a table and wasn’t disappointed, delicious avo on toast, and my friends food also looked great. Had iced coffees and they provided soy milk: this place definitely good for vegan options
