The Lisboa Café is an unusual little place in one of Toronto’s artsy districts, a charming but run-down restaurant with a hipster vibe that has survived both modernization and gentrification. It is located far from the bustle of downtown hospitals, at the intersection of two important thoroughfares that carry work-worn commuters out of the city. The Café’s clientele is a strange mix of the familiar and the bizarre: on any given night, self-conscious couples may share aisle space with large parties of 10 or 12 who sit, for the entire duration of dinner, in hushed silence—even as the live band plays a number that puts everyone else in a social mood.
