It seems this place caters for locals and tourists alike. Service is efficient and the food is adequate for what you pay. We ate lunch here and the clientele was quite varied with students, businessmen, tourists, locals etc. We passed by a few nights later...More

Nice location near two churches and an intersection of two of historic tram lines. The drinks we had were good and the terrace was nice on a sunny February day.

Waited an hour for some pretty basic sandwiches. The kitchen wasn't even busy and the order was wrong!

Whenever I am in the downtown Porto, I always come here for a cup of coffee. It's a historical cafe that everybody in Porto knows about. Once I had to go by taxi to the place near the 17th-century church and I named it to...More

i've been going there for a few years now as it is a popular place to go when on a night out amongst my friends. the drinks are not very expensive and with the amount of different bars and clubs nearby creates a welcoming atmosphere.
