Café Bernard

Cafe Bernard has all the trappings of a classic Lisbon tearoom: cream cakes, an industrial-sized coffee machine and hordes of tourists. In terms of decoration and clientele, it’s one of the traditional Lisbon cafes. At 5pm on the dot, the city’s old folk gather for a crème patisserie and a game of cards.

More expensive outside tables at Cafe Bernard are the reserve of tourists and thirsty shoppers. The café is especially famous for its freshly baked croissants, which are constantly cooked in a fire oven and served with lashings of jam and cream. Service can be slow and austere waiting staff are unnecessarily aloof and self-important.
