Founded in the early 20th century and a splendid example of Art Nouveau architecture, this little gem of a café is noted for its ornate domed ceiling and honey-coloured columns topped with capitals adorned with angels and fruits in golden tones. Equally exuberant are the azulejos (tiles) resplendent with geometrical motifs in shades of green and orange typical of Spanish-Moorish tile decoration. An array of cakes and pastries are displayed under glass panelling set across a marble smooth curved counter. The café also sells fresh bread baked on the premises and serves various soups and light snacks. This is a lovely place to relax over morning coffee or an early evening aperitif surrounded by an historic and artistically pleasing interior.
