After my fresh coffee dry spell in Quarteira, I was curious to see what Porto had to offer. Given that Fabrica Coffee Roasters in Lisbon had set the bar pretty high, I was a little concerned since I was dealing with the Portuguese passion for bitter, old, cheap coffee (like most Europeans).
After some exploration I can say that Porto….. was….. ok. There was no amazing coffee like what I found in Lisbon, but it was acceptable and somewhat tasty.
Ok, I think I didn’t order the best coffee – too milky. Maybe it was a language thing. This place was made for hipsters. The food is really good though. Good vegetarian options.
The coffee was quite good here. They have some nice cafe food too. I tried one of their salads. Again, it was a funky cafe… really nice.
This was my favourite, and it had nothing to do with their banoffee pie. The coffee (flat white) was good enough to warrant a return visit.
A funky 2 storey place, with heaps of seating. They also host various meetups and mini, informal, get-togethers here.
There might be some others in Porto, some undiscovered gems, and I would love to hear about them.
