    El Mojito

    Run by hipper-than-thou staff, this beach shack and cocktail bar sits right on the lakefront and gets rammed on summer evenings, with a good-looking crowd chilling on the deckchairs and listening to DJ-spun beats or buskers, mojitos in hand.

    Grand Café Al Porto

    Going strong since 1803, this cafe is the vision of old-school grandeur with its polished wood panelling and pineapple-shaped chandeliers. The tortes, pastries and fruit cakes are irresistible, as is the hot chocolate.
