Majestic Cafe Porto

Cafe Majestic is an historic cafe, located on the fashionable shopping street of Rua de Santa Catarina, in Porto.

Majestic Cafe Porto Portugal.

Opened in 1921, Cafe Majestic is known for its lavish Art Nouveau architecture including its lovely marble facade and ornate, wood and glass interior.

The Majestic soon became a meeting place for Porto's elite including artists, politicians and writers.

In more modern times, the Majestic is associated with author J.K. Rowling's rather unhappy stay in the city, along with the Livraria Lello bookshop. No doubt some of the inspiration for the Harry Potter series of novels stems from the plaster ceiling, Flemish mirrors, leather upholstery and varnished wood of the interior of the cafe.
