Lisbon's Best  Coffee Shops

Thankfully Lisbon is lacking in neither excellent coffee nor cafes serving more than just a stale croissant. This guide contains a handful of coffee shops you should mark on your map. Whether you need a place to set up shop with your laptop throughout the day, plan a low-key meeting, or have a moderately priced lunch by yourself, these are our favorite coffee shops that are serious about coffee roasting and brewing, and also have great food.
