Weary from walking the calçada streets Lisbon? Tired from too much shopping in the boutiques? Need a bite to eat, but traditional soup and sandwich doesn’t sound appealing? There is a little refuge hidden in away in the Chiado that is the ideal place to escape the urban hustle and bustle.
Fábulas is a quaint and inviting space to meet friends, or spend a quiet afternoon by yourself. It is in the bottom of an old building off the steps leading from the Rua Nova do Almada. The walls are rough hewn and the arches provide that old world feel. Over-stuffed sofas offer comfort, and old sewing machine tables provide a place to set your tea. Chair sin little niches are great for quality alone time. Open up your laptop, as Fábulas is a wifi zone…or just grab a book or magazine placed for your convenience around the café.
