This place is iconic: it exist for more than a century and has not change since! But today beer (only one brand and Portuguese) is served in cans, the glasses are so dirty and looking like being used for many times without washing. And the toilet: if you can hold it all the way to you hotel, don't go there,... More

The breakfast that you can make in this place is nothing special. Cappuccino is bad and the croissant too. So is better that you look for another place for a good breakfast. Ale

The best pasties ever. The worst service. You need to wait and wait while no queue is there. Something wrong with organization there. I would return any way for the pasties

If you are going to try the traditional Portuguese pastry; Pastel de Nata, this is the place to do it! They have been making them since 1829 and they are absolutely delicious! The place is a little expensive if you go in and sit down but if you fancy being real Lisboetas then order your coffee and treat to have... More

The classic 10am till lunch and mid-afternoon cake and coffee slots are usually full of tourists. Who got there first! But I got a rice cake and a coffee one eve at ten to six after a PM siesta. Bland but pleasant texture sponge cake, fresh. Wife and I dropped in for two coffees and a water at about 11.45... More

Had lemon tea and a custard tart at the restaurant/bakery, both were a wonderful way to get a bit of sugar boost. Took some cookies and baked goods back to the apartment, all were very tasty. Service is a bit harried, but they do serve lots and lots of people.

Found this little gem from Rick Steves and another travel site. Rick never misses! This place has fantastic dessert cakes and cookies, and all are extremely inexpensive! It's right in the middle of the shopping and restaurant area, on a corner. This place is a must visit in Lisbon!

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
