Such a famous café cannot be missed on a visit to Porto. The hype around the café might be a bit overrated however the experience was a pleasant one. Compared to local standards the prices at majestic are high but it is comparable to many cities in Europe. I had a café au lait and a Pastel de nata which together cost 6euros. The Pastel de nata was larger then any of the other cafes in the area and was cooked to perfection. The coffe was strong. We had a long wait before any service but the place was busy and there were only a few staff serving all the tables. The old world charm is still visible and it is easy to imagine the café at its height around its opening in 1929. The story of the café is printed on the place mats. A neat little corner of history.
