The Coolest Breakfast Spots and Lunch Places in Lisbon

Di Marzano Café Vermuteria

This coffee shop is the place to start your day. Order a nice cup of coffee, tea, omelet, or a thick, delicious cheesecake, and you’ll be good to go. It’s a bit of a shame they don’t have yogurt, and the toast is a bit sparse, but overall, this is a great recommendation! You can sit incredibly comfortably here.

Location: Largo Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro 32, 1200-369 Lisboa

Augusto Lisboa

Augusto Lisboa is truly a Lisbon hotspot. This cozy, vibrant pink coffee shop can be found in the beautiful Alfama district. You can order really delicious breakfasts here. I went for the smoothie bowl, and it was incredibly tasty. However, there isn’t really a terrace. Dogs, on the other hand, are welcome inside.

Location: Rua Santa M.nha 26, 1100-491 Lisboa

Restaurants for Dinner in Lisbon

Bao Bao

BAO BAO might be my favorite in Lisbon. It might not be really Portuguese, but the food is so GOOD! Not only is the food delicious, but the interior is also delightful. Everything just fits perfectly at BAO BAO. Absolutely recommended.

Location: Largo Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro 30, 1200-369 Lisboa

Oficina do Duque

Oficina do Duque is located in a very charming street, perhaps our favorite in Lisbon. During the day, you can have a lovely lunch there and dine romantically in the evening. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere might even be better. We found this to be one of the nicest places for a meal. Additionally, it’s very affordable.

Location: Calçada do Duque 43 A, 1200-155 Lisboa

Tasca do Chico

If you want to enjoy a genuine Portuguese meal with the ultimate Portuguese atmosphere, then a visit to Tasca do Chico is a must for you. While dining, you’ll be treated to an intimate Fado concert. Additionally, this place is renowned for its unique sausages, so unique that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain once traveled here.

Location: R. do Diário de Notícias 39, 1200-141 Lisboa

Lisboa Tu e Eu

Lisboa Tu e Eu is truly a gem. You’ll find this restaurant tucked away in a small alley right in the heart of the Alfama district. The place is really tiny, cozy, and the food is incredibly affordable.

Location: Escadinhas das Portas do Mar 4, 1100-119 Lisboa

Café Buenos Aires

This café was opposite our apartment and turned out to be a very nice spot for a bite to eat, and certainly to end the evening.

Location: Calçada do Duque 31B, 1200-155 Lisboa

The Food Temple

VEGANS take note! In Portugal, they love meat and cheese, not the best combination for vegans. Even I have not been eating meat for a while and prefer to eat as much vegan as possible. If you want really delicious vegan food, then The FOOD Temple in Lisbon is the place to be.

Location: Beco do Jasmim 18, 1100-289 Lisboa

1300 Taberna

When you enter Lx Factory, you’ll almost immediately come across the trendy 1300 Taberna. Here, you can enjoy great drinks and food. It might be a bit more expensive than in other neighborhoods of Lisbon, but it’s a very cozy place to be. The interior is amazing!

Location: Lx Factory, R. Rodrigues de Faria 103, 1300-501 Lisboa

Village FOOD

Just a bit outside Lx Factory, you’ll find the restaurant Village FOOD. It’s a super trendy spot where you can order amazing burgers among other things.

Location: Village Underground Lisboa, Av. da Índia 52, 1300-299 Lisboa

Time Out Market

If you can’t decide, grabbing a bite at the Time Out Market might be just for you. This market consists of 2 halls. In one hall, you’ll find the fresh market, and in the other hall, there’s a food court. Personally, I found it a bit touristy and unfortunate that you can’t sit outside. However, it’s still a place you should check out.

Location: Av. 24 de Julho 49, 1200-479 Lisboa
