    The squid is beautiful, as are the Portuguese wines. The cafe has just expanded and the menu re-focused on Portuguese specialities.

    Great food and coffee although the place is small enough for the 'dine in' prices to be high. There's also no toilets facilities.

    I would go as far as to say the chorizo omelette sandwich is among the worst sandwiches I have ever eaten and extortionate for a cold omelette with minimal chorizo in baguette
