Best cafes to have brunch in Lisbon, Portugal

The most important meal of the day. At least to us. Of course Oasis breakfast is waiting for you until 11h, but perhaps you slept a little late. Or maybe you just need something more to help youreslf recover from a long night. Lisbon has tons of cakes and pastries and they can be found in small cafes anywhere – but if you want a true and proper brunch, these are the best places in Lisbon to find it.


Kaffenhaus

In Chiado, just beside Lisbon’s famous São Carlos theater, lazy mornings get their best starts at Kaffenhaus. This Viennese cafe in the center of Lisbon serves wonderful and satisfying brunch, as well as providing lunch, dinner, and drinks as the day wears on. Relaxed, minimalist décor with furniture built in Bairro Alto help ease you into the day over drinks and Austrian style treats like the devilish Sachertorte (cake with two layers of chocolate dough and a cover of dark chocolate) and their praised Apfelstrüdel with whipped cream. Later in the day, maybe opt for the breaded pork escalope with potato salad, hearty beef stew, or one of the dynamic specials from the chalkboard.

Rua Anchieta, 3
Chiado

Open Tuesday to Saturday 11h – 24h and Sunday 11h – 20h
tel. (+351) 210 956 828

Pois Café

This homey cafe is an absolute favourite for an easy and cheap brunch on the weekends and a great stop for a break while exploring the area’s jumbled and winding streets. Serving classic Austrian pastries, snacks, sandwiches, salads and delicious desserts, you’ll feel at home in Pois Cafe’s livingroom atmosphere. The library in this place is open to the public and book-exchanges are encouraged, so – be a literary swinger – come with one book and leave with another, but not before relaxing for a while on the sofa. Do yourself a favourand get the marbled Gugelhupf – you won’t be disappointed.

Rua São João da Praça, 95
Alfama

Open Tuesday to Sunday 11h – 20h
tel. (+351) 218 862 497

And it's a triumphal mark of portuguese great discoveries in new cultures and worlds on the Age of Discovery.

Instagram post 2079300923177785121_2069307983 Why do you think Lisbon has trams going up and down hills?
1. Lisbon is too hilly.
2. People from Lisbon are two lazy?
3. We just want to show off to our tourists?
