You don’t go here for the decor or even the chance of a seat BUT what you do get is the best pork sandwich you will have tasted. There is usually a queue to place your order but this is operated efficiently, and the wait for the food is worth every minute! And, such great value. Loved it.

Even on a cold evening in February, there are queues out of the door at Casa Guedes, which is clearly an institution in this part of Porto.
The menu is straight-forward: tender pork, cut off the bone, in toasted rolls, with maybe cured cuts or ‘mountain’ cheese as the alternative. Grab a beer or a glass of wine and try to sit on a bar stool (or stand) and watch the industry of those working behind the counter. Order taken, food prepared, hand it over, move on, next please...
It’s not really a place to loiter but try to spend 30 minutes here to experience a real flavour of life in the area above Batalha. Well worth it for under 5€ for a sandwich and a beer.

The bread is as soft as a cloud. The pork is incredibly succulent. The prices are more than reasonable.
I went twice, two days in a row during my time in Porto and would have gone a third time had I of not have still been full from lunch.
The rain when I visited meant that I managed to dodge the queues and get a seat on both occasions.
The house red is delicious. As is the rosè.

Naturally, I tried both the pork sandwich with and without the cheese. My personal preference was the sandwich without the cheese but that's only because I don't have a strong persuasion towards strong cheeses.

Also - the fries were delicious and should not be skipped.

The staff were attentive and polite. No complaints at all regarding service!

Enjoy!

Thank you Casa Guedes!

This is a no frills cafe, with friendly staff who speak a little English. However you should come here not just for the people, but for the amazing roast pork in a roll.
The pork is juicy and succulent and the juices soak into the roll.
Take a seat at a table or at the bar and chat to a local. There was a short queue when I ordered but hardly any wait at all.

Been here several times now, the queue to order is a giveaway as to how good the food is. Can not recommend enough - you will not be disappointed.
