D’Arco Coffee Shop at Avenida Norton de Matos in Tomar

I used to be a regular customer of another coffee shop in Tomar, but sometimes, when the other one was closed or at night, I would also visit D’Arco Coffee Shop at Avenida Norton de Matos, to have a “bica” which is a typical Portuguese espresso coffee. D’Arco Coffee Shop used to belong to a family and they all worked there, including his teenager son who now must be in his 40’s. I also remember that one of his coffee shop waiters, was a young man who later went to university to study law, and he is now a Portuguese Judge. He is probably being treated as “your honour” when he is in a court of law.

Outside D'Arco Coffee Shop you can enjoy a "bica" (espresso coffee) under the shade of a canopy. In summer people often prefer to be served outside
