People are great, great food with an awesome home made apple pie! And the best is the view on 1st floor, to take a coffee looking to the park!

“perfect place”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

this is the kind of little cafe I am always looking for when I am traveling. I happened to just find it by chance as I was walking around. As I approached the cafe I thought to myself, "this spot feels special." I honestly thought that just as I walked up to the front door. The energy in this place is perfect. simple with kind people behind the counter. very helpful with all knowledge about area and places to go and most subjects of interest. I stopped by on my second visit to Porto. The place was even better. Seems to be a popular off the path place the locals only know about. I hope it stays that way, and I dont ruin it by writing all this. Most cities or town have one place like this, they are often hard to find unless someone local takes you there. I got Lucky.
