Leitaria da Baixa – My favourite little gem

Leitaria da Baixa is a very charming and cosy place near Rua de Santa Catarina. I absolutely adore this spot. It’s perfect not only for a chat with friends but also to study and work. I love the decoration and the attention to the small details; even the way the food is presented is simply adorable.

My favourite breakfast menu in Leitaria da Baixa consists of bread and a mini croissant (with jam and butter on the side) plus a hot drink – you can choose coffee, tea or a latte. And I feel like I must warn you about the mini croissant… it’s absolutely mouth-watering! But if you can’t go there for breakfast, don’t worry. They also serve lunch and dinner, with Spanish and Portuguese tapas (there is even a variation of our loved francesinha). All around, it’s a very cute place to go that gathers a lot of different people. 

If the weather is cold, don’t forget to order a hot chocolate to warm you up and if you can’t resist temptation just try a piece of chocolate cake. I’m sure you’ll be happily fulfilled.
