There are lots of different cafes and restaurants in Lisbon where you can enjoy either breakfast or brunch. A great place to eat is A Padaria Portuguesa in Chiado where you can begin the day with a Continental breakfast. By mid-morning the menu includes appetizing lunch options. Similarly, at Brown’s Café in the Baixa (downtown) district hungry visitors can grab a hearty breakfast or early lunch. Breakfast is also served at Quinoa, situated back in Chiado and where organic produce is prepared. An authentic local flavour pervades Casa Brasileira, a favourite brunch spot in Lisbon’s Rossio neighbourhood. Likewise, if you’re up in Alfama district you can enjoy an early lunch at Bistrô & Brecho Gató Pardo, especially lively on Saturday mornings. Across the capital at Príncipe Real is Orpheu Caffé, noted for its Sunday brunch options. Another eatery where they offer a fantastic mid-morning menu is the upmarket Eleven restaurant, a Michelin establishment where brunch is prepared by an award-wining master chef. The mid-scale Fábulas offers a filling buffet brunch on Saturday mornings. The restaurant is tucked away from the main road and set in its own courtyard. Even more intimate is the unpretentious Cruzes Credo, a delightful little café situated opposite the cathedral near Alfama. And for pure convenience, there’s always Starbucks at Rossio railway station, which opens early and serves an eager clientele throughout the day.
