Cafe Pastelaria Benard

A Lisbon historic café, in the heart of glamorous Chiado, serves some of the best croissants in town in a aristocratic ambience.

Rua Garrett 104, Lisbon, Portugal

} 9am - 11pm

Founded in 1868, it started as an aristocratic Lisbon tea house. Today is one of Lisbon’s most emblematic cafés. You find it in Garret Street, a lovely pedestrian street in the heart of Chiado, right next to A Brasileira, another well-known café in Lisbon. This one is less touristy, though, and as good.

Its deliciously fresh croissants have become legendary, and are made using a secret recipe. But if you fancy something more typical, there’s plenty of sweet choices. It also serves meals but go for a coffee and a sweet treat.

To enjoy the genuine 19th-century atmosphere grab a chair inside. Otherwise, get a table in the esplanade, perfect for people watching and feel the pulse of one of Lisbon’s most charming streets

      A speakeasy in the heart of Lisbon? That’s right. Just look for the red frog on the outside and “buzz for cocktails”.
