Often cited as one of most originally designed cafés in Lisbon, Café 28 is named for the city's iconic number 28 tram. But it goes one stop further: the entire café actually resembles the interior of the famous streetcar. Housed within the walls of a disused townhouse located near Lisbon's castle, Café 28 serves a range of snacks, light meals, pastries and ice cream to "passengers" who take their seats by windows that frame a series of black and white photographs depicting the history and evolution of the Portuguese capital's tram system. Information panels in English and Portuguese provide further insight. Besides the salon (with its free WiFi), customers also have the choice of relaxing at a table on a small outside terrace, but it's nowhere as much fun.
