The Brasileira is one of the oldest caffées in Braga. The waiters are the same for ages. Always nice, some grumpy. But this place is history, it's heritage. Try their café and buy some to brew home. Unforgettable experience.

Lovely cafe in Braga located in DT, very friendly and helpful staff- hats off to Teresa. we were last week with a couple of friends for lunch..their traditional plate " Francesinha" is a must try, i recommend girls to divide the dish because it's heavy but yummy.

Went here a couple of times once for lunch which was good and fairly priced. Historic place that's at least worth a coffee during your visit.

A Brasileira (the Brazilian [woman]) is a centennial café in the historic center of Braga. Try the famous “café de saco” (cloth strainer).
