Cafe Nicola

Nicola is a fashionable cafe with good pavement tables where you can watch the people around Rossio Square. There has been a cafe here since the 18th century, but the current art decor dates from 1929. You will also find a cosy restaurant in the cellar.


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.
