Great Coffee and Atmosphere in Lisbon

Your Lisbon Holiday is not just about walking up and down the hills and visiting loads of monuments and museums.

You absolutely have to rest, relax and chill in one of Lisbon's most famous and original cafés, enjoying life passing by while sipping your coffee.

There are cafés for every taste, from the historic downtown cafés with their superb scenarios of marble and tiles to hyper trendy super modern coffee shops to go, see and be seen. There are wonderful outdoor cafés by the river and the ocean, where you can enjoy your coffee and sail your thoughts away in the blue waters, and there are of course your regular nice cafés, no so much about fancy frills and more about delicious fare and coffee.

Amélia Lisboa

Address: Rua Ferreira Borges, 101, Campo de Ourique, 1350-128 Lisboa

Telf.: +351 21 385 08 63


Schedule: Everyday from 9am to 9pm


Amélia, the girlfriend of Nicolau: the delicacy and elegance of Amélia is only comparable to the irreverence she shows in her wonderful pink styling: the baroness of Campo de Ourique is the centre of attention of her small “county” of Lisbon.

From her art nouveau window, Amélia is wooed time and again, but her heart belongs to Nicolau. If this is true, we don’t know, but we feel her freshness and lightness in the dishes she prepares with lots of love and serves in her pink counter or in the secret garden.
