Early-ish on a Sunday morning we were strolling along Avenida da Liberdade and looking for a place to eat breakfast. If you are walking south, there are not too many options so we were really happy when we stumbled upon this place. Breakfast was really good (had pasteis de natas), service is very friendly and it is a nice, relaxed... More

This unassuming little Leitaria on Avenida was a great find. The food, beer, coffee are excellent and cheap for the very centre of Lisbon. All the waiters are friendly and professional - Paulo is outstanding and very proficient. I thoroughly recommend this place for breakfast, lunch or just a drink

Staff were very good, with timely service. Food good - local dishes with choices from daily menu of the day. Lunchtimes were very busy with tables quickly filled up by local office workers - a good sign!! Waiters were patient and explained dishes well. Also went outside mealtimes for coffee and the pasties were delicious!

We fell into this place while looking to rest our legs and then stayed because the staff were so friendly.We had a perfectly adequate meal and admired the very large collection of port wines that they had. I didn't want to mix my drinks that evening so we arranged to go back the following night for a taster session. The... More

I enjoyed a coffee plus Nata - they had a good selection of pastries all of which looked tempting. The location is right on the Liberdade so great for people watching though I found the service indifferent.

My wife and 10 month old daughter ate breakfast here on two occasions. Great, super smooth coffee (Tofa brand), freshly squeezed orange juice, great selection of pastries and cakes and cooked breakfasts also (on the second day we had eggs, bacon, fries and toast). Above all, the waiter here was brilliant. Ever attentive, spoke fluent English, despite my best efforts... More
