My title basically summarized the review, but I will expand on it a little more.

The decor at the cafe was no doubt beautiful and majestic (cliche!), but was it worth more than €3 for a croissant??!! We were not in Paris.

Get some coffee and take some pictures there. But fill your stomach elsewhere as there are tons of bakeries on that street.

The pianist was playing on his small grand and the place was bustling at 5.00pm. Interesting people watching spot and good snacks and service. Reasonably priced for a destination cafe.

It may be written up in all the tourist guides as THE place to have breakfast in Porto but apart from a French couple we were the only non-locals there. Amazing surroundings, enjoyable breakfast and exceptional value

A great place to enjoy an afternoon feeling like a refined lady, eating scones, listening to live music and observing the art nouveau decor.

Such a famous café cannot be missed on a visit to Porto. The hype around the café might be a bit overrated however the experience was a pleasant one. Compared to local standards the prices at majestic are high but it is comparable to many cities in Europe. I had a café au lait and a Pastel de nata which together cost 6euros. The Pastel de nata was larger then any of the other cafes in the area and was cooked to perfection. The coffe was strong. We had a long wait before any service but the place was busy and there were only a few staff serving all the tables. The old world charm is still visible and it is easy to imagine the café at its height around its opening in 1929. The story of the café is printed on the place mats. A neat little corner of history.
