Breakfast and Snacks in Bonfim
Our favourite Cafe in the neighborhood. Perfect place to have a light meal or a cup of coffee in a comfy atmosphere. Owned by lovely couple Leonor and Mário, you will feel at home here. Try the granola bowl, the baggels, the croissants, the apple pie, etc., etc., etc.

In Combi they roast their own coffee. Spacious place with plenty of light and a nice selection of pastries.

The real deal. Do not expect nice paintings on walls and a tasteful decoration. The good taste is all in the food. They have a great selection of freshly baked pastries, both sweet and savoury. If you want to see Bonfim’s oldies disobeying their doctor’s orders and enjoying a nice cup of coffee and a cake, this is the place. Try the different sweet miniatures: less can be more (if you have more than one).

Casa Guedes has been around for a long time, but only now has been discovered by young people and visitors (there might be a waiting line). Pulled pork sandwich with cheese: there’s no need to say more. Perfect evening snack or “light” dinner.

Maus Hábitos literally means Bad Habits. Bad habits because cultural intervention to be socially meaningful and fruitful, and to prevent it from staying only in the dimension of the purely decorative, cannot be "well behaved", but innovative, subversive and transgressive. A space for cultural intervention with an interdisciplinary character, offering areas and proper equipment and human resources to receive exhibitions, various shows, such as concerts, theatre, performing arts, space for rehearsals, training and artistic residencies, as well as there’s also room to enjoy a good meal, either vegetarian, portuguese typicals or marvellous pizzas. The intersection of languages one can breathe at Maus Hábitos finds explanation in the fact that, in its origin were people with very different experiences and backgrounds, who felt the absence of a space to exercise freedom for creation and cultural fruition. Their intention to bridge this gap was turned into reality by starting a project that could fit them, and could also be at the service of others. In the area of contents and events production, after 13 years of work it is possible to form an idea of the place we occupy in the city of Porto, offering a space which is exceptional for presentations on the most diversified areas of cultural life, from visual arts to music, concerts and recitals, from theatre plays and performing arts, not closing the possibility for any show or style. In a globalization era, where free circulation of people and ideas is increasingly easier and increasing everyday, we harvest and we offer the best side of this reality, which brings closer the discovery of similarity in difference, the exercise of free and tolerant coexistence between equal of condition beyond circumstantial differences. Maus Hábitos is a space and a project promoting experimentation, free of judgmental and without institutionalization; a space of encounter between creators and audiences, between businessmen and creativity, between thinkers and agents. An open and free space, which arouses curiosity, which allows the error and the discovery, where you feel at home. Maus Hábitos in the musical area is by far one of the most loved places in Porto, where many Portuguese Artists/Bands started and rehearsed in a common and free space, and where they still want to perform and present their work. Today and 13 years after its beginning, it’s still a place which resists mainstream criteria and struggles to be able to offer a good alternative programming, faithful to its origins but always foreseeing new valuable projects that arise, new emergent artists showing up and needing a place to turn their work visible in the artistic and cultural community we embrace.

Our favourite restaurants in the neighbourhood and beyond
If you are looking for a typical restaurant in Rua do Bonfim, this is definetly the place. Honest and low-priced food: you can have a meal for less than 5 euros (soup, main, and drink). It is usually crowded at lunch time, with workers and retired people from the neighbourhood. Don't be surprised with Senhor Raúl (the owner) shouting orders to the kitchen - only a few meters away - where Dona Natércia (his wife) takes care of the cooking. The francesinha is pretty good (vegetarian option available).

Busy on weekends and lunch time, this is a favourite of Porto's families. Traditional, hearty dishes where meat and fish rule here. Honestly, we like everything. On the green side, you can always order a portion of "esparregado" (spinach pure), one of the best in Porto. 5m walking distance

Old-school Porto restaurant. It’s not about the decoration. However, the food is amazing, especially the fish. Senhor Zé, the owner will make sure you have a nice meal.
