Last month, I had one day in Lisboa, coming back from some wonderful relaxing days at the Portoguese ocean side. It was my second time in the city, so I wanted to take it a little more slow this time. Therefore, my priority was on finding some nice tea or coffee place and spending some quality time at a relaxing spot with a bit of sunshine. I think I did pretty well, but get a picture for yourself!
Hotel pick: Check-in Guesthouse – very cosy, comfortable and clean guesthouse, equipped with a big kitchen in case you feel like cooking. Located in the southwest of the city, close to the district Bairro Alto.
Place for tea: Tease – I discovered this cute and cosy café just by incident while I was in search of the Copenhagen Coffee Lab, as it is located across the street. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere very calm and relaxed. You can only get great tea, but also great cake and coffee.
Place for coffee: Copenhagen Coffee Lab
– looking at the other side of the street, you then have more great coffee to pick from. I did not have coffee here as I had tea at Tease, but I had a look inside. It has a very clean design with lots of whites and wooden colors.
And here are two more places for a quiet, relaxing break: two parks that I can really recommend are „Praça das Flores“ and „Praça do Principe Real“. The first one is really close to „Tease“ and the „Copenhagen Coffee Lab“. The second one is opposite of the indoor market I talk about in one of my former posts. Bigger than the first one, they both have their own wonderful atmosphere where you can grab a coffee, grab a book and relax.
