A Brasileira

A Brasileira is a famous and classic cafe in Lisbon with magnificent, dark panelled interior dating from 1905. They have a newspaper and tobacco kiosk, and pavement tables which are looked at just as much as they are a vantage point.


After a day of sightseeing, find a table at a pavement cafe on Rossio Square. Savour one (or two!) Portuguese custard tart and restore your energy. Take in the milling of the crowd with the backdrop of the Baixa neighbourhood — the flat city centre that dates from the 18th century.
