A Brasileira 1/2 by Tripoto
Yara Coelho
The Brasileira is one of the oldest and most beautiful cafes in Lisbon. It opened in 19 of November 1905 by Adriano Telles to sell genuine Brazilian coffee, an unappreciated product by then. This cafe is filled with a magnificent Noveau art décor, used to be the intellectual and artist meeting point in the early 20th century, one of the most famous being Fernando Pessoa, a Portuguese poet whose statue can be found at the esplanade. Here you can have a fairly affordable breakfast and refill your energies for a free walking tour.
