Entering through the doors of the Café Majestic, diners are transported back to the Belle Époque period of the 1920s when the café opened its doors, with its marble walls, ornate cherubs, and gilded mirrors.
In its heyday, intellectuals, bohemians, and Porto’s high society all met at this café, located on the Rua de Santa Catarina, a pedestrian street that is at the heart of the city’s main shopping area. Today, locals and tourists gather to sip their morning espresso, have their afternoon tea and rabanadas (a Portuguese version of French toast), or enjoy a traditional dish of “Bacalhau á moda do Porto” over a leisurely dinner. Bom apetite!
