“We are absolutely delighted to be open again in the city centre, we had so much support for us last time and we can’t wait to welcome back our loyal customers who we have missed so much.”
In addition to the redesign of the downtown site, Lisboa also recently opened a new site in the Spaces building of the Digital Campus, a co-working space near the train station.
For Spaces, the brand has launched its new concept “Little Lisboa” where they also continue to offer their specialized Portuguese range but on a reduced menu.
Lisboa is also looking to develop its own Fairtrade coffee roastery and certified organic tea blends.
Another cafe was launched in Crookes High Street last summer and bosses said the outlet has seen positive growth since it opened to customers.

Lisboa has earned a local reputation for its Nata pastries, as well as other iconic baked goods such as Mil Folhas, Bolo de Arroz, Bola de Berlim and their famous giant grilled toastie.
