Few cafes in Portugal offer such an atmospheric backdrop. The interior, set in a dramatically beautiful high-vaulted former chapel, features stained-glass windows, graceful stone arches, and a Ché mosaic where the altar would have been, while the outdoor patio area affords one of the city's best vantage points over Praça 8 de Maio. Popular with tourists and locals alike, the cafe has regular free fado. You'll pay a bit extra for the atmosphere, but it's worth it.
