    Café A Brasileira

    It's located at Rua Garret at Chiado and is a good place to have a light lunch brake or an aperitive before dinner.

    Café a Brasileira, presumably the oldest café in Lisbon. This is a very nice place to have a bica (a very small cup of coffee, bit like espresso) with a sweet Pastel de Natas or just anything else you might fancy. Take into account that because of the history this is also quite a touristy spot. This also has to do with the bronze statue of Fernando Pessoa in front of the café. Almost every tourist has a picture taken with him or her and the statue
    Location: R. Garrett 120, 1200 LISBOA. Opening hours: Everyday 08.00 - 02.00 hrs....

    We arrived in Lisbon in the morning, by train, and this cafe was the first thing we saw when we got out of metro. Later we found out its a very famous cafe :-)

    Built in 1895, this old café is beautifully decorated with golden mirrors in Jugend style.

    Favorite Dish: The coffee of course.

    ...The sitting bronze statue in front of Café Brasileira is a frequent customer, poet Fernando Pessoa, who must have had such good service and decided to stay a little bit longer, lol.
