The best known cafe in Porto, the Majestic Cafe, is not just popular for its choicest food and drink options but also for its elegant architecture. The gilded woodwork, chandeliers, paintings, and upholstery of Majestic Cafe can give any of Porto’s monuments a run for its money. The cafe opened in late 1929 and back then was called ‘Elite Cafe’.

It soon became the favourite haunt of intellectuals, high class females and celebrated personalities of the age. The café shed the ‘Elite’ in its name to rid itself of any perceived monarchic hangovers. By the 1960s, the building lay in a decidedly decrepit state and was more or less sent into retirement. In the early 1990s, it was once again restored to its cultural glory and opened for business.

The cafe will also go down in modern history for another special reason. Author J. K. Rowling spent majority of her time here working on the first book ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.

The Majestic Cafe offers luxuriant and mouth-watering food from morning to midnight. Try their wines as well as salads.
