The place is relaxed, well-decorated and offers comfy chairs perfectly positioned in front of huge windows overlooking the city below. There’s a great balcony with tables, too. The view from this cafe is one of the best views of the city by far. The food and drink here are excellent and cheap. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere cozy and we can’t think of a better spot to spend a couple of hours in Lisbon, especially in the evening as the sun sets in front of you.

Every day the Pastel de Belem´s patissiers recreate in the “Secret Room” the cream and the pastry which will form the pastéis. It´s said to have come from the nearby Jerónimos Monastery, and has been produced what we can say is they are popular early morning. But have faith-they are worth the wait.
