Neighbourhood: Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Description: Chosen as one of the most original cafes in Lisbon, the "28 Cafe", placed in an old building by the Castle of St. George, reproduces, in detail, the interior of the iconic 28 tram. But instead of traveling through Lisbon's hills, it takes you back in time while serving delicious meals.
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Actually we only wanted to have a short break there, but then stayed for almost 2 hours! As you can see at the photos the interior is really nice and the diner style fits perfectly to the old tram. The prices are moderate and our lunch was delicious! If i return to Lisbon, I'll definitely return to that cafe...

Friendly staff, speaking good clear English. Inside is made to look like a tram. Very reasonable prices considering the proximity to the castle. Lunch for two including coffees €12

Great coffee ; best pasteis de nata with lovely tram decor and good service.. We only ate nata and drunk coffee but we love the atmosphere. It is a good place for resting after visiting Caste of Sao Jorge.
