We went here in the afternoon for lunch. We ordered the famous "francesinha" and "Brazilian hot dog", but later we found out that theres two are very similar :P We don't actually like the food...

The Brasileira is one of the oldest caffées in Braga. The waiters are the same for ages. Always nice, some grumpy. But this place is history, it's heritage. Try their café and buy some to brew home. Unforgettable experience.

Lovely cafe in Braga located in DT, very friendly and helpful staff- hats off to Teresa. we were last week with a couple of friends for lunch..their traditional plate " Francesinha" is a must try, i recommend girls to divide the dish because it's heavy but yummy.

Went here a couple of times once for lunch which was good and fairly priced. Historic place that's at least worth a coffee during your visit.

A Brasileira (the Brazilian [woman]) is a centennial café in the historic center of Braga. Try the famous “café de saco” (cloth strainer).

Yes, this is the place "to be" in Braga. They are victims of their own success. Very slow service, if you ask for anything extra, it takes ages to get it. I was surprised they charged .50 extra for milk for coffee. I was also short-changed when I paid for my coffee and pasteles de nata.I would not stop here... More

There's nothing that particularly makes this cafe stand out in terms of the cuisine it provides, but it does have a lot of history and interesting decor and is worth a visit just for that!

We stopped for lunch, the boys had burgers which they loved. I had the delicious Brasileira salad and iced coffee which was amazing! The wife had tuna pie which she says was nice. Lovely atmosphere, recommended for a quick lunch or coffee.
