This is a cafe you will find it in the village of Coimbra (Portugal) and is the former sacristy of the Church of Santa Cruz (right next door). It was a unique conversion that actually suits it quite well. The vaulted ceilings and stone walls are conserved well, which together with antique decor: old wood, large fans that remove air in summer, embossed leather covered chairs, marble tables with wrought iron base ... give it a colonial feel and it is very welcoming. It has a large bar where you can have a coffee. It has an outdoor terrace and some days live entertainment performs at night. It is very well situated. The staff is friendly and the service is very good. A good place to take a break while strolling through the center of Coimbra.
It was pouring down, so we went to eat at this restaurant, the first we found, and it was not bad! It's steps from the Republic Square (the center of Tavira). It has modern and contemporary decor. The menu is quite international, offering both Portuguese dishes (cataplanas, cod, octopus ...), burgers and other dishes. We ordered a seafood cataplana for two (€28), and it was very good!
