Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Vertigo
Just around the corner from Largo do Carmo in the busy shopping district of Chiado, this is just the place for a mid-shop bite. Shopping bags are usually propped up against table legs as gal pals discuss shoes, handbags and the latest Brazillian novela (soap opera).
Healthy fare is the staple here: soups, smoothies, salads, quiches, calzonies and ice green tea are the house specialties.
The feel is smart and stylish in classic surrounds, with stone flooring, stained glass ceiling, marble tables and faded-wood panelling on the walls. The crowd is in their 20's and 30's.
All service is at the counter, which can mean a queue, annoyingly.
In one of Chiado's square-linking backstreets.
