Nice place, with a very good street terrace, meals on the very cheap side, traditional Portuguese food, very nice pastries and a friendly staff makes a very good option if you're on any of the nearby hotels. This is not Starbucks so don't expect luxuries, you pay what you get, very honest.

Quaint little coffee shop off the beaten path. Stopped for breakfast and the pasties and pastries were some of the best I've ever had along with a morning espresso.

Friendly staff, reasonable prices, a good choice of pastries, sandwiches etc and drinks. Not the place if you like a cooked English breakfast though.

Handy if staying near Marquis de Pambal/Avenide. They work hard but are friendly too. We paid between €5-€10 for 2people. Recommend the egg toast sandwich and fresh orange juice.

The most important thing is if the pasteis nata are good - and here they are. Even better, a half bottle of decent red wine was only 2.75 euros!

Found this place by chance and lucked out with some good coffee and pastries (sweet and savory). Some I liked and others not so much but the coffee is good, and despite my lack of Portuguese and their limited english managed to communicate. Very good prices: 3 cappucino's, 1 soda, and 1 pastry for under 8 euro.
