Noémia da Costa Pinto
Noémia opened as a guesthouse in 2016 and a café split across two rooms was later added on the first floor. The café is not only adorably cute with a retro fitout reminiscent of Grandma’s house (think a 50s-style TV set and peppermint-green chairs), but it’s also a makeshift cat refuge. Staff collect loose change in a kitty (get it?)

O Pretinho do Japão
Here you can drink your coffee or wine on the lawn or admire the garden from the glass-paneled patio. Be sure to take note of the artwork, including what looks to be a Cheshire cat perched on the fence, by one of Porto’s most celebrated graffiti artists, Nuno Costah.

try the vegetarian version of Porto’s Francesinha – a multi-layered sandwich dripping with cheese, or for something lighter, settle for a plate of oven-warm scones and know that everything down to the jam is made in-house.

Casinha Boutique Cafe
The Casinha Boutique Café is conveniently located a five-minute walk from Casa da Música, Porto’s iconic concert hall. At first glance it looks like a small deli with limited seating, but head down the corridor past the counter and you’ll find another room leading to a leafy garden.
