A cafe that is at the same time a bookstore and a flowerhouse. Here you can find the latest news in Portuguese and International Poetry and discover the less known publishers.

There will be poetry sessions very often, where you can listen to poets reading their own books or other author's books. The space will be very intimate, like a real living-room, full of plants with a vintage/victorian touch. The important is that you'll feel certainly confortable to sit as long as you want, drinking a coffee and reading a book if you wish. There will be also space for art exhibitions. If you want to show your art project I'll be very happy to meet you!

The place is in Rua da Saudade just next to the Roman Theatre ruins and Sé Cathedral.

Thank you very much for your support!

About the author

I was born in 1981, Lisbon. I worked as a screenwriter for cinema and television and I have three poetry books published: 

Os dias da corja (Do Lado Esquerdo, 2014), A primeira urina da manhã (Douda Correria, 2015) and Ver no escuro (Tinta-da-China, 2016).

I live with my two cats, Aurora and Polly Jean.
