Where Poets & Intellectuals Gathered for a Cup of Coffee in Lisbon

 Café A Brasileira

I’ve been feeling a bit gloomy lately, maybe it’s the London weather or maybe I just need to go out and explore a little more.  So I’ve been looking at my old travel photos and my favorite travel destinations and I stumbled upon this photo.  I miss Lisbon and it was such an amazing weekend trip with a girlfriend (which I blogged about here).

On our second day of the trip it started to pour out raining and we hurried into Café A Brasileira which is an infamous cafe for artists, poets, and intellectuals to gather.  The interior is beautiful with paintings and a rich history over 100 years.  By the entrance of the cafe they have a status of Fernando Pessoa a poet who often visited the cafe.


I liked their espresso but I prefer egg tarts from Pastéis de Belém
