  • Opened since 1909 and better known as "Piolho" (louse), this is one of the most charismatic and oldest cafes in the city. It is mainly frequented by students. Today it's one of the landmarks in Porto, not only for its history (which can be learned through the messages students post on the walls) but also for its gatherings.
