  • Reasonable cafe. Liked the meat Danish and fried potato salad thing. WC dirty and no flush.
  • One of the best areas in Porto for cafes, ice cream, shopping, and watching street performers. These area is always crowded and it’s a great place to people watch. I wouldn’t recommend driving here. You can take the train here. There are different art installations throughout the year.
