It opened in Chiado when the modern cafes were still a mirage in Lisbon and was gradually gaining its place in the great restaurants of the city. Yes, restaurants. First with brunch, then with the steaks, cakes, hamburger, sausages until you get where you are today, with a menu full of Austrian dishes of unpronounceable names and guaranteed quality. Yes, it is good to go there to have breakfast in the morning and eat one of the croissants. But what about dinner? This is the Kaffeehaus golden hour, believe me.
Perfect for: having lunch, having breakfast or a snack in the afternoon, reading the newspaper.
Must try: Weinerschnitzel vom Huhn mit Erdäepfelsalat. Yes, the chicken fried steak.
