“Quite ordinary”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

We read the reviews being the oldest cafe so we took the trouble to look for it. Found it finally behind the back street but kind of disappointed upon entering . It doesn't give the quaint feeling but rather modern after undergone renovation I guessed. Order the pastries which were ordinary and the coffee which not that fantastic . I do hv expectation on this place bsc certainly hv not been met.

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Café Progresso advertises itself as the oldest cafe in Porto, and after all these years, they still serve the delicious and famous "Café de saco". They also serve food, and although it is not splendid, it is good value. Most of the staff are friendly, and the ambiance is pleasant and unpretentious.

“Great Lunch/Coffee place”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Nice cafe with inexpensive plates for lunch. Nice atmosphere, quiet with internet. A good place to sit and relax and have a coffee or sweets. There is an upstairs part that is nice and open with good light.

“They've earned the right to boast...”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

An accidental find, it offered a perfect location to warm up with a cup of coffee and some scones. While the menu isn't super extensive, what they serve is very tasty for a good price. It quickly became our favorite spot for breakfast, a cup of coffee and a book, or just sitting among the locals.

“Definitely anoying employees...”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

We went there to try the old coffe, and asked also a toast bread with butter. It take forever, the they brought the toast and we waited for at least 15min or maybe more for the coffee, when it came the toast where cold so we ordered again... Problems in our vacation to Oporto, and the coffee isn't extraordinary. You definitely can skip this one!!!
