Café Majestic

Café Majestic is claimed to be not just any café: it is an essential stop on any visitor’s sightseeing itinerary. Voted in 2011, the sixth most beautiful cafe in the world, Café Majestic was founded in 1921, and it still retains the original flamboyant glamour of the roaring 1920s, decadently decorated with marble walls, cherubs, and gilded mirrors.


There are many pleasant cafes in Porto where you can get a refreshing drink or coffee. Snack-wise, most cafés will serve you a "francesinha", which is a cholesterol-full delicacy made from meat, bread and cheese finished off with some spicy sauce.
