“vida e caffè” is portuguese for “life and coffee”

the concept was born out of the heritage of a truly european espresso bar, a reaction to the insipid coffee shop culture that is prevalent in our daily lives. vida e caffè is a simple, focused concept that delivers an authentically european experience in espresso and coffee drinking.

vida e caffè as a concept has existed, in one form or another, for centuries. walk down any street
in lisboa, porto, rome, paris or barcelona, and you will see the sidewalk cafés that have been our
inspiration. a shrine for the wonderful bean and the drinking of it in its purest form; the espresso.
the simplicity of the interior, the focused menu, and the nature of the service, have all been designed
with european street culture as the foundation. the vida e caffè espresso bars aim to deliver the
highest quality coffee and pastries, prepared to european standards. our menu is based on the fare
typical of a street café in lisboa, a slice of europe on african streets.

vida’s mission is a simple one:
we strive to serve the best espresso, or espresso based caffe, as well as offer the best atmosphere
and food on the planet.
