Best place I found in Lisbon for typical breakfast, fantastic toasts, fresh fruits, good coffee and variety of pasties. Place decorated with clasical tiles just in the centre!

Placed in the lateral of Liberty Avenue, just beside the tivoli's cinemas the place is a must for the variety of portuguese style cakes. These wonderfull pieces of heaven to eat, for all tastes, from sugar to salted, be sure to experience them

We tried this unpretentious small restaurant along Avenida De Libertade. Ordered the fish bacalao . Although the place was full and the waiters were very busy , he explained and gave us 3 choices of how we wanted it to be cooked, in tomato sauce,...More

We eat here the first day in Lisbon, more because it was late and we didn't want to look for something better. The restaurant is one of the few open in the middle of the afternoon in its area but it is a very turistic...More

The Bela Ipanema is in a very good location, on the Avenida Da Liberdade and we decided to have a short coffee and sweets break here. While the coffee was good, and so were the sweets, we found the service to be rather bad. The...More

We stopped here a few times for breakfast because it was so conveniently located to our hotel. The food was good but I most enjoyed the atmosphere. You could sit outside or inside and it always felt like there were more locals than tourists dining...More

Friendly, kind, polyglot service... not too expensive (considering they are right on the "Champs Elysées" of Lisbon)... be sure to order "uma torrada" (two thick slices of perfectly square toast cut into three strips each, somewhat resembling an incomplete Rubik's cube) with your coffee.

It's mentioned in several hotel reviews as a nearby place to eat. It's excellent: a local reasonable place with a standup coffee bar, wines, wonderful pastries. In addition, an outside and inside excellent restaurant. The waiters have given us excellent recommendations for wine and food. We've had the roasted trout and ham, grilled squid, garlic and bread soup, Portuguese paella, several salads, da nita, and other pastries and wonderful coffee. The bill for a full meal with a full bottle of EXCELLENT wine recommended by the waiter came to 42 Euros for two. You can see workers taking a coffee break or a quick lunch, dinners, locals with their kids and tourists all in the same place. A pleasant wonderful atmosphere and right near many recommended trip advisor hotels.
