Lisbon is well known by its special light, and you will understand the meaning of it once you look over the St. George Castle hill and say to yourself: my god, this is special.
But far away from Lisbon downtown, far away from the streets filled with people try to catch that special light of Lisbon, there’s another perfect light: A Luz Ideal (The Perfect Light) was the name chosen by the owners of a cozy, beautiful and stylish caffee in the north part of the city.
In an old neighbourhood, in the middle of Estrada da Luz – a road that once crossed farms – you will find a nice coffee shop, with big windows that fills the space with light, to relax and enjoy a slice of homemade lemon cake with lemon curd on top (nhammm), salads or pastas. Every day you will find a soup and two dishes, one of them a vegetarian one, for lunch. For drink? Several teas, fresh juices or lemonade.
A place to enjoy every minute of it.
