Café Quim
save place
Petisco and Sandwich king of Porto
Adega quim is a small place, which has been helping the hungry travellers who arrive at São Bento train Station for over 50 years. Here “petiscos” and sandwiches rule the menu options. Panados -the Portuguese version of the Viennese schnitzel, and of course, the ever present octopus salad - Boiled octopus, red and green peppers, onions, parsley and a looooot of olive oil. My suggestion is to sit on the counter and don’t be surprised if they hand you a box of wood toothpicks as cutlery. If you are not so daring, you can ask the petiscos to be served inside a bread bun to go (my favourite). It opens quite early (at 6am), so if you wake up with munchies or if you’re going to bed late, give this place a go.
