This place is a joke. I saw a good review from it possibly from LonelyPlanet but here's what happened.. you order at the counter and they give you a coded card (kinda like the ones you get at hotels) and that's how you pay at the end at the cashier. People don't really speak English.  Thats fine. At a bakery one can point and understand prices..that's universal. A strawberry cake is a strawberry cake in Portugal like it is in NY like it is in any other country. The waiter drops off the cake and espresso and says "ni Hoa." I guess it is harmless though whys he need to do that? I'm not visiting frm Asia. No one says that to me in the States when i eat there.  Is it a warm way to greet me? It didn't feel like it. So we had more time and we wanted another dessert so i ask the waiter and pointed at it.He either orders it or doesn't and it never comes. It's fine as long as they dont charge.  So after waiting with nothing delivered even after a line dies down, i just go to the counter to pay my bill using the keyed card.  But we get charged for the dessert.   The cashier has an attitude, even though the display isn't clear(it only displayed the last item charged, not the total) so I'm unsure of the total. She doesn't speak English. So she gets pissed and thinks I'm stupid.  I ask for the receipt, she gets mad. Slams it on me.  I check the itemization so i see how the total is. And i see we got charged for the 3rd item we never got. So i show the guy at the bakery counter, the listed item and mimed never got it,pointing to the table we were just on. So they give it in silence, no apology and we eat it and leave. Friend who's been to Portugal many times says service is not their forte. You can say that again! It's fine to have locals work but better to have some with more friendly demeanor.
Espresso and desserts ok but service was kinda f'ed. From being told my the waiter "ni hao" to the cashier ringing up $1.15, saying the actual bill of $5.50 (more correct), and then when I asked for the receipt to understand the itemization she rolled her eyes at me. I didn't think the bill was $1 for my espresso and dessert but I clearly didn't understand Portuguese b*tch. Also what didn't make it better was both who made those comments looked like they were possibly of Indian descent, not Portuguese. But maybe. Regardless we def got a "you don't belong here" vibe at the watch store next door and this cafe. The bookstore was nice to the hubs  though. Wow I have not felt so discriminated against since I drove across the country and was eating in the middle of the US.
I have been staying nearby for nearly two weeks and they have been lovely.
Wonderful Pastel del Natas, Meia de Leite and waiters!
