Café a Brasileira: "Have a cup with Pessoa" A Brasileira Tip by MonicaTore

A Brasileira, Lisbon: 24 reviews and 31 photos

The Brasileria is perhaps the most quintessential café in Lisbon, a gathering place for writers and artists in the 1920s. Fernando Pessoa's presence is still there through his characteristical statue observing Chiado as he so often did, on the esplanada.

Nowadays the artists are mixed in with tourists and Lisbon locals, but the atmosphere remains, the café on the ground floor being virtually unchanged since it's opening.

The restaurant in the basement serves a standard Lisbon cuisine, Grilled chicken, Squid, Bacalhao with creme etc. A bit of a tourist trap, perhaps. I'd go for a Brasileira coffee in the café or on the esplanada.

Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken! Nowhere do they make this as in Lisbon.
