Savouring Lisbon’s delicious, cinnamon sprinkled Pastéis de Belém pastries with a cup of Lipton yellow is nothing less than sacrilege, so finding this tea room was a real treat, mainly because it is located on a pretty, peaceful little square, which must be even more beautiful in Spring because it is filled with jacaranda trees that burst into blue flower around May.

Chá do Carmo serves  a wide selection of Mariage Frères tea, although only the tea bag variety. Inside is nothing special, so save this address for a warm day when you can sit ouside and enjoy the square.

Opposite the Museu Arqueologico do Carmo.

I found a little vegetarian restaurant in the street leading to the square, with a really delicious buffet for just 8,90 €.
