We frequented the Graca location to buy ground coffee, have coffee and sweets, and generally enjoy the pastries! Other good food available throughout the day.

Best coffee in Graça. Staff is very friendly and relaxed. The cakes are fresh and very well made. I suggest the pão de ló and queijada de leite.

Also went to the Colombo Centre branch of this chain. The coffees were reasonable, but the hot chocolate was excellent. The chocolate cake and strawberry cheesecake were also very good. Friendly staff as well. Also very reasonably priced.

Strong coffees, a lot of sweets and some chocolates. Nice, relaxed place. They were a bit shocked when we asked if they had something salty, savory but we ended up having a (sweet) good bite.

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
