Not just another kiosk in Lisbon, but actually the most romantic one. It’s located in a charming palace from the mid-17th century, and nowadays hosts the public municipal library.
I have been to this palace many times before, mainly for events and receptions in their saloons or poetry recitals. And one thing that I had always noticed was the underused garden. A wonderful space, very historical, with its old Portuguese tiles and peacocks, but normally closed to public.
Now finally it’s open with this gorgeous kiosk. Nice and delicious cakes (I’m still in doubt if the chocolate one was a cake, a mousse or a dream), nice coffee, a terrific atmosphere, surrounded by the palace, Palácio de Galveias, peacocks that dare to join you for coffee, and the vision over Campo Pequeno, and the temple-like headquarter of Caixa Geral de Depósitos, facing the Culturgest entrance.
Also, they provide lovely colourful blankets for the cold days and in case you forgot to bring a book, no problem, they’ve got a basket full of them!
Whenever you are searching for coffee, a beer, cakes, a toast, a rest or just peacock watching, this is the place!
