This restaurant/cafe is in a prime position in the Rua Sto. Antonio, then why do they close at all of the times when you would expect to have this sort of place open? It's a nice place to go to, simple and relaxed food but...More

Average quality at a very high price compared to it's neighbors. Not coming back. Payed 10€ for 3 croissants and two very small orange juices, pathetic.

Pastelaria Gardy, on Rua de Santo Antonio, on rhs down from Zara. Excellent coffee and wonderful choice of cakes. Worth looking in, you probably will linger like me. Coffee was a great perk up to busy shoppers.
