Manifesto puts together two things I love doing: reading magazines and drinking coffee! So, how could I not love this place?
Situated in Mercado de Matosinhos it's also perfect for a getaway from the city. And just nearby you can visit Piscinas das Marés by Alvaro Siza Vieira - the strong waves breaking at the cliffs have something ruminant for me. As an ambassador of creativity and slow reading, Manifesto drew inspiration from the Japanese culture and has brought the specialty drip coffee stand concept to Porto. While enjoying and appreciating coffee, you can riffle through over 200 independent magazines, among which you will find Gerador, Kinfolk, Offscreen, ArtReview, Aesthetica and Monocle.
