Pop Cereal Cafe – Heaven for Cereal lovers

Cereal has been my major comfort food since I was a kid! I love it in rainy days, on lazy weekends or when I don’t want to make dinner! Everybody knows that cereal are for children but if you love it and you ain’t ashamed – JOIN THE TEAM !

So, as a huge cereal lover,  as soon as I heard about Pop Cereal Cafe in Lisbon I immediately I had to go and try it out.

The whole concept of this place basically appeals you to chill out with your friends while you eat cereal ! Not only it has  delicious combinations of cereal bowls, including some that no longer exist or that never came to my country, but also totally indulging  milkshakes. Sounds good, huh?

Starting with the space, I found it super creative and well laid out. It suits perfectly with the concept of the business – it’s super colorful, with cereal boxes everywhere, old TV’s and pop theme decor, so it totally brought me back to the 90’s – insanely cool!

The staff was super nice and thoughtful, they always help you out and advise you on what to choose – which is pretty hard to do , believe me.

They have a wide range of products – from super chocolaty bowls, mint and chocolate, fruity, with ice-cream… you name it! You can either choose from the menu or do your own There is a huge amount of cereal to choose from, different types of milk and even yogurt.  Just makes me want to try it all!

As huge fan of mint chocolate, I couldn’t resist choosing an after eight cereal bowl – with mint M&M’s and mint milk – which was absolutely delicious! An explosion of flavors, different than everything I’ve ever tried.

This ended up being an unique and delicious experience that I look forward to repeat, because that is still so much left to try ! So if you’re visiting or living in Lisbon, you can’t miss it !

Adress: Rua do Norte No 64 – Bairro Alto, Lisbon

Lisbon Travel Guide: TOP 6 Parks & Gardens

Hi guys!

Parks are always one of my favorite things to visit in other cities, and Lisbon has a lot of amazing parks worth to take a look at – some more forest-like, some more exotic… but they are plenty, so here’s my advise on that 🙂

 

Eduard VII Park & Amália Rodrigues Garden

pq eduardo 1.jpg

Edward VII Park is located in Marquês de Pombal (can’t miss the huge green area near the roundabout)  and it has a beautiful view through Avenida da Liberdade and Tagus River. Amália Rodriges Garden is located right behind with a nice fountain.

Location – Marquês de Pombal or S. Sebastião | Price: Free

 

Monsanto Forest Park

Monsanto is a huge forest park a bit far from the city center. It has so much to explore that you can get lost inside (literally: it happened to me), great viewpoints, like Alfredo Keil where you get a view of the river, but my favorite is “panorâmico” de Monsanto. This place was a fancy restaurant that was abandoned after it  went bankrupt, so even though it is state’s propriety and it’s not really legal to enter, it has such fascinating view that everyone goes there – WORTH.IT.

Location – Monsanto  | Price: Free

 

Campo Grande Garden

This garden was recently renovated so it is a very nice place to hang out – a McDonald’s inside, a little lake where you can go on a boat and sometimes they held Outjazz in there, which is a free music festival happening in the evening.

Location – Campo Grande | Price: Free

 

Calouste Gulbenkien Foundation Gardens

 

 

This was one of the first places that made me fell in love with Lisbon. Gulbenkien is an amazing foundation with  a museum that often has great exhibits,  but the best part , in my opinion, are the gardens. It’s close to a busy street but, as you come in, it’s like you immediately left the city and entered in a different dimension, since it is so different from the common gardens: it has lakes, fountains, plants, animals and it is just relaxing to walk around there. There’s also an auditorium outside where you can sit and just read a good book .

Location – S. Sebastião| Price: Free

 

Tropical Botanic Garden

With all the fuzz going on in Belém with the monuments and pastéis , this place goes a little unnoticed by tourists – but it is something special. It has a few temples and tropical plants, so it is actually a pretty cool place to go.

Location – Belém | Price: 2€

 

 Quinta da regaleira

Quinta da Regaleira

I’ve told you about it on the post  about Sintra , but I will tell you again because I can’t say it enough times. This garden is freaking amazing and I cannot get tired of it. It is located in Sintra, but usually tourists tend to choose Pena Palace instead of this amazing place. Well I tell you : do go ! This is such a beautiful place, filled with secrets and beauty!

Location – Sintra center| Price: 6€

My personal favorite park is of course Regaleira, even though is not exactly in Lisbon.

 

Let me know everything! Have you visited any of this? Which one is your favorite? Which one would you rather visit?

11 things to do in Évora – One day trip

Hey there! Long time no see huh? I am back!!!

This time I’m writting about Évora, one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal. Évora is a very special place for me, since I have family there, which means: I went there many times and I absolutely love it!

So if you’re spending a few days in Lisbon you can easily take a train and you’ll be there in 1h30 hours for about 10€ (one way).

This amazing city is located in Alentejo region, have you heard of it? Alentejo is this perfect countryside region where you can rest peacefully, try some great wine and marvelous food. Évora is a part of it, and it has many things to visit for itself, but as it is quite small, it’s  easy to see in a day. To simplify it for you, here are my 10 favorite things to do when visiting Évora in a short period of time. Continue reading “11 things to do in Évora – One day trip”
