Taking breakfast at Nicolau means enjoying one of Lisbon's coolest morning eats venues. A bright, breezy vibe, quirky retro-furnishings, and a funky soundtrack set the scene. This is a place to meet friends and get happy! Its city centre location draws plenty of foreign clientele¬ ¬– visitors eager to sample the eatery's enticing and outrageously healthy dishes. But locals, too, have caught on, and the cosmopolitan buzz is tangible. Arrive just after 9am and they're already serving up Açaí, huge bowls of fresh fruit and homemade granola. For something a little more substantial but no less nourishing, consider the eggs benedict. This is one of Nicolau's most popular dishes. But if you're feeling shamefully indulgent go for the red velvet pancake, a beautiful melody of strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry dusted with icing sugar. What a treat! In fact, the plating up is impeccable, and the colours simply dazzle. The menu is extensive, and full of surprises. Oh and if you're just after a drink, Nicolau's Green Detox – an exotic blend of spinach, banana, apple, ginger, lemon, and chia – is a superfood knockout.
- Breakfast: "Nicolau is a veggie hotspot. It also has gluten free choices. Ask for more details after taking your table."
- Best for Breakfast Because: A breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner venue all in one, Nicolau is one of the funkiest food gigs in town.
