In June I went here with my grandmother. I was in the priority line (because it said we should go to that line because we weren't going to order lunch), and the people that were not in the priority line (the lunch line) were attended...first. I asked for a fork and a knife for my cake and the girl from the staff threw the fork over the cake. The cake was very dry and it was expensive... Not going there again, bad staff and organizationMore

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.

If you want to eat good, healthy breakfast with Portuguese sweets it's the best place! Tasty salads and sandwiches accompanied by delicious coffee.

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.

This is a review for the branch in Graca but this chain delivers consistent quality. I am an enthusiastic meat-eater but the veggie quiche looked so good I gave it a try- I am so pleased I did! Light and yet filling at the same...time. The coffee was perfect, one of the tastiest and smoothest I've had in Lisbon- and that is saying something.More

Definitely the best coffee in Lisbon! The coffee taste is just amazing and due to the fact of the several mixed origins of green coffee used to roast their one and unique blends! The decoration of the stores it is charming. All the products, such...as the pastry and the juices, are top quality! Definitely a place to visit in Portugal's capital!More

The portuguese are addicted to coffee - strong expresso - and the quality and flavours are superb. Portela is part of a chain and serves great coffee together with wonderful cakes and amazing chocolates. A must place to visit for an experience to stimulate the...taste budsMore

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
