The best places for brunch in Lisbon


La Boulangerie

There is only one thing better than the scent of freshly baked croissants and that is the taste of a croissant you have just bitten into. This place off Rua das Janelas Verdes offers some of the finest examples of this French speciality as part of its brunch, along with scrambled eggs, a bread basket, homemade jams, Nutella and a cold collation of cheeses, cured hams and sausages, salad and fruit.

Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei

At this mansion in Alfama brunch is served amid stained glass and stuccoed ceilings – have your Instagram at the ready – but the food itself is a minor work of art in itself. As well as rolls, cheeses, cold meats, fruit and eggs, there are homemade jams, a delicious peanut butter, salmon, bacon, tomato with mozzarella and also a slice of cake.

The menu at Tartine has everything you need for the perfect brunch: fresh juices, cappuccinos and hot chocolates, eggs seven different ways, toast, pancakes, waffles, croissants and yoghurts. But there is also a set brunch for those who dislike the do-it-yourself approach, including a bread basket, hot drinks, granola with organic yoghurt, and more.

Royale Café

Forget all the brunches you have had anywhere else. This one is original and has a special Portuguese flavour. You can choose from two main dishes: a large bun with a poached egg, tomato, fresh coriander, farinheirasausage sprinkled with tangy São Jorge cheese, and an aromatic salad; or a flaky pastry with Mozzarella, ham, Edam-style cheese, bacon and tomato, with a parsley pesto salad. Along with either come a yoghurt with berries, juice, cake and coffee.

Café com Calma

A long way from the city centre, in Marvila, this is a great place that offers a very unusual brunch. It has mini-hamburgers, scrambled eggs with asparagus, croissants, yoghurt, homemade cake and much more – of course including bread, cold meats, cheeses, juices and hot drinks. It is pretty trendy these days so it is best to book ahead.
