Take time for a coffeeA great place to have brunch, but beware because Café Com Calma (“Coffee with Calmness”) doesn’t serve brunch during summer. However they have a menu for lunch and delicious homemade cakes. Here, there is no rush, just time to delight in your breakfast or lunch.
Entering this place is like going back to my childhood. I recognize some of the furniture, the plates on the wall, and some of the bowls—there were similar in my parents’ house and also in my grandparents’ house. The old is back and turns this place into a cozy living room.
The brunch is quite good, including a bit of this and that: granola and yogurt, cheese, ham, toast, fresh bread and croissants, homemade cake, and coffee, tea, and juice. There are vegetarian options.
This part of the city is less visited by tourists. Spend some time at Fábrica do Braço de Prata, where you can attend a concert or see the exhibitions.
