There is a relaxed and cozy Coffe Shop in Alfama neighborhood named Pois Café. With walls and floor made with stones from the original construction, the Pois café home design is very informal and joyful. Has vintage trunks, 70`s furnitures, and on the walls a few arts from locals artists. You can fall on the sofas, read a book and enjoy a beautiful afternoon, alone or with friends. Has the peculiarity of sharing a table with strangers and make use of all the books, magazines and games that have space.
I`m currently crazy about velvet cushions. I love these old green velvet futtons on top of chairs.
In the menu there are soups, tapas, salads, sandwiches and delicious desserts. I chose to order the LAx, a toast with grilled smoked salmon, cream cheese and red onion – wow! To drink I wanted to try a typical austrian lemonade called KRACHERL with blueberries, sparkling water and lemon juice. I loved it, but you have to like sweet drink, because that was pretty sweet.
As the Coffee is located in Alfama, take the opportunity to explore the neighborhood which is quite typical, watch the buildings, the tight streets, the clotheslines, the tiles and visit the Sé Cathedrals. You can also try a fresh orange from the trees.
