From the Commercial Square we go up Augusta Street and soon we reach a fantastic bakery where we have a cup of strong Portuguese coffee with a delicious pastry, and learn the rich history of Portuguese coffee and conventual sweets.
We continue to explore the Baixa neighbourhood and stop for more surprising tastings along the way, and then we go up towards Chiado and Bairro Alto (upper quarter), where we see the very first place to serve espressos in Lisbon, and still one of the city’s most famous cafes.
Soon after, we have a taste of Gorreana Portuguese Tea, which is grown in the beautiful island of S. Miguel, in the Azores, and is one of the few teas produced in Europe and we explore the famous Bairro Alto, the heart of Lisbon’s night life, with its many restaurants, bars and cafes.
