Quiosque do Mercado

The red kiosk located in the Dom Luís I garden.

When the tables and chairs around a kiosk are full of people on a sunny day that is a good sign. When they are still full on an overcast or rainy day … then the place is a real success story. That is the case at the red kiosk on Praça Dom Luís – which now has the name Quiosque do Mercado – making it a leading candidate for the city’s best. It has at least one quality that deserves a medal: it is the first decent offering on Praça Dom Luís, one of the city’s prettiest squares, in at least 20 years.
