We called here late in the evening, upon arriving in Porto. The menu was extensive and we both chose a fish dish and a beer. The food was average although the cafe was busy with locals

My wife and I had breakfast here one morning as it was close to our hotel. Just basic orange juice, coffee and toast for under 10 euros. Most of our breakfast stops served thick sliced toast; here the portion was smaller.

Felt like my local pub-restaurant, lots of locals, not too touristy. Service quick and friendly, cosy inside in a very old building with character which we like. Nice house wines.
