Far the best "bica" you can drink in Lisbon. All the pastries are self-made and are delicious. Still keeps all it's tradition and taste. It's our favorite spot for breakfast and afternoon snack.

Lovely little cafe. The Portuguese custard tarts (pastel de nata) were the best I'd had. The spinach empanadas are also a must-try.

A tardis of a place, it looked tiny from the outside. What it lacked in square footage was gobbled up a bighearted attitude to service. On our very first visit, we felt treated like regulars. It was easy to see why people queue for this...More

Weak, but trice sized expresso. Cold scrambled mini-eggs and raw bacon. Very expensive. Beautiful little place. Nice hosts. If you pass by just keep passing...

This is a very small corner café, typically Portuguese, serving pastries, pies (a speciality) and other things such as soup. The food is delicious and very good value, and just being there is a lovely experience!

Small, but full of character. Principe Real is such a lovely part of the city and this little bar/pastry house is a delight. The prices are excellent and the small chicken pies are a dream

Fantastic pastries, both savory and sweet. Try the alheire (Portuguese sausage) and spinach empadas, or chicken and mushroom. The custard pastries are wonderful too.

I have been coming to this place for years now and their quality is always spotless, They have for me one of the best custard pies (pastel de nata) of Lisbon. If you are more inclined to the savory side the "empadas de galinha" are...More
