O melhor café é o d'A Brasileira

Not so appreciated at the beginning of the 20th century, the habit of drinking coffee owes a lot to Adriano Telles, a brilliant businessman with a sharp entrepreneurial spirit, author of the motto: "Drink this with sugar", which would give rise to the famous slang for coffee: Uma Bica!

Like many young Portuguese of the 1800's, Adriano moved to Brazil and there he dedicated himself to the coffee business. When he returned to Portugal, he brought back new ideas and created a network selling coffee imported from Brazil. The famous A Brasileira coffee houses were created in several Portuguese cities: Braga, Porto, Lisbon, Coimbra, Aveiro, known for being the place for artistic, literary, and intellectual gatherings where it was required to wear a tie to enter.

A Brasileira Café, in Braga, was founded in 1907 and is one of the most emblematic places in the city, not only for the quality of the coffee it still offers, ground to order, but also for the art-deco decoration of its rooms and the unique details of its furniture. The recent renovation work has enhanced the original architecture and beauty of the A Brasileira building.
