Great central location in Alfama. Super coffee , quiche and toasted sandwiches sitting outside in the sun. Obviously popular with the locals which is a good sign. Sat for well over an hour enjoying watching the world go by without any pressure to move on.

destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
