Remember Tintim? That small Belgian reporter who was always going on all kind of adventures with his cute white dog (Snowy in english or Milou in Portuguese, as I knew him)? Ring a bell? Well, even if it doesn’t, you should give this place a visit :)
Tintim Café is a peaceful and quaint café in Avenida de Roma, where although the iconic cartoon is the theme even those not cartoon-obsessed can have good cup of coffee in a nice space. Here you will find a spacious and luminous place, perfect for having a conversation with a friend in the middle of the afternoon or just sitting by yourself enjoying a good book and a tea.
Speaking of the menu, it offers several light-meal options like salds, wraps, italian toasted crepes and soup. There’s a menu with a crepe (Toscan- mozarella, ham, tomato, olives and oregano), a salad, a juice and coffee for 6,9€. You can also find a nice selection of teas.
Downstairs, if you do want to get your Tintim fix, you can find a store, selling all kinds of merchandising related with the beloved cartoon character and his companions. Better yet, there is a wall by the entrance where you can leave him a message or make him a tribute in a post-it note, as others have.
