The new store has now reopened with an enhanced indoor seating area, outdoor seating and take away options.

Dan said: “Being Portuguese I grew up learning the importance of heritage. Lisboa has been a real labour of love for me, so having the opportunity to create something that has that strong history and the provenance is really key.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be back open in the city centre, we had so much support for us last time and we look forward to welcoming back our loyal customers who we’ve missed immensely.”

In addition to the city centre site revamp, Lisboa also recently opened a new site in the Spaces building at the Digital Campus, a co-working space close to the train station.
