A Galão is a signature Portuguese style coffee that is most similar to a latte or cappuccino. Served in a tall glass, it is rich, milky, and sweet. A Galão is one of the most popular and typical drinks seen at a Portuguese coffee or pastry shop for good reason. Perfect for breakfasts or brunch, while serving in typical Portuguese style with a savory or sweet pastry on the side. Simple and easy to make.
