Quiosque de Refresco
The refreshment kiosks have given new life to the city’s historical kiosks, which had been abandoned indefinitely.
The first one opened in 2009, on Luís de Camões Square, and the model was quickly replicated, with four kiosks emerging in four other points of the city: the Príncipe Real Garden, the Flores Square, the São Paulo Square and the Sé Square.
The concept is simple: kiosks are reused for a different purpose. In all of them, classic refreshments are served, such as horchata (almond based), mazagran (made with coffee), capillaire (based on fern leaf syrup), lemonade, beer, ginginha or Port wine and even soups and snacks that easily transform this relaxing moment into a more complete and longer lasting experience. And, despite the name, these refreshment kiosks also serve hot drinks, like coffee or tea, and their terraces are open late, eliminating the problem of tardy meals.
Cool Tip: After work, head to any one of these terraces and enjoy the late afternoon in good company, in a cool and historical spot.
