The New Café in Lisbon’s Jardim do Torel

Jardim do Torel Café

Now that daylight is becoming prolonged and the temperatures will start to rise (spring is just about four weeks away!), Lisbon is offering you a new spot for a drink in the sun. Just opened in the recently-renovated Jardim do Torel, this is another viewpoint café where you can admire the city as you enjoy a light meal or a refreshing drink. It’s not one of those charming old kiosk cafés opened last summer, but rather a brand-new and contemporary structure. You can sit indoors or at a table outside, enjoying a salad, toasted sandwich, a chocolate or cheesecake, or a freshly squeezed juice starting at 10AM until 7PM (for now because it will remain open until later in the upcoming summer months). Those looking for a pre-dinner, after-work, or after-sightseeing drink also have the option of wine by the glass, sangrias, and mojitos.
Best of all is that the garden remains one of the city’s best-kept secrets, found away from the beaten tourist path (although easily reached by the Lavra funicular), and even often forgotten by locals. So you’ll likely have most of the space and view all for yourself, although probably just for now because come summer, word of mouth will surely change that…
