Very nice café in a area that is now developping a lot in Oporto. She was the pionier over there! Cosy space, good stop for a refreshing pause. You can drink a coffe or a bier and read some design magazine. No traditional portuguese food.

If you like a great coffee then this place hits the spot. 100% arabica coffee, with a small but tasty array of cakes.

The mindset it's grab to go, however you are very welcome to sit in the middle wooded counter and enjoy a charming coffee room that shares place with a couple of shelfs which have several trendy magazines like...

My friends and I stumbled in on this place during our visit to Porto and we were so pleased to find a charming little coffee/magazine shop served by the lovely Joana. Joana and her best friend opened this place only a month ago, and are very committed to friendly service and quality coffee. We ordered up some Americanos (abatonados) and... More
