Found this great cafe as we were touring around Alfama for the day. Staff were incredibly friendly and food was delicious!!! Loved the orange juice and coffee but the highlight was definitely the hot chocolate!!! Can’t wait to come back again

This cafe is everything we were looking for on our trip to Portugal...it’s warm, friendly and delicious! One of the best things about Europe and Portugal is the coffee, but at this cafe it’s all about the hot chocolate. This isn’t just any hot chocolate...this...More

Comfortable place for tea and pastries. The perfect armchairs after a long day sightseeing. Very relaxing. On the famous 28 team route.

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
spectacular option for those looking for a more
