While walking from the Castle of Leiria to Sé de Leiria (Leiria Cathedral), we came across the most adorable cafe! This was unexpected as it was not on any tourist map that we had but was the most welcome surprise as it allowed us to continue our 2-a-day caffeine addiction (sometimes 3-a-day for Andrew).
The price was in line with what you would expect anywhere else in Portugal for um cafe expresso or um pingo (< 1 euro). To learn how to order coffee in Portugal, I had to... google it...ha... but found this handy website (http://www.portugaltraveltips.co.uk/food-and-drink/how-to-order-coffee-in-portugal/) describing the types of coffee one could order. Coming from the states, I was used to a simple black coffee (no milk or sugar) but this is not really an option in the rest of the world (we had similar lack of black coffee in Australia).
The seating consisted of a mix of short stools and benches! We saw a young teen couple sitting here and I had to refrain from taking a creeper photo of them.
The decor was so well put together and quite unlike any other cafe we frequented in Portugal. You'll roll your eyes but it was definitely Pinterest-worthy to me.
For those who want a break from walking around Leiria and need a refreshing afternoon pick me up, check this place out.
