Eat breakfast like a king queen, lunch like a prince princess, and dinner like a pauper it is said. Even though the brunch is left out, it’s my favourite meal – especially together with good friends or a magazine, sun and of course sunglasses to cover up the hangover from last night and to stare at people without getting noticed..

I’ve already found two great places to have some brunch. At noobai café located at Miradouro do Adamastor you can enjoy a great view, whether it’s the hottie on the table next to you or the view of the river Tejo. The place has brunch until 16h on Sundays, and great sandwiches if you come later. I’m a sucker for their fresh juices as well.



For the rainy or cold days I prefer Fábulas, a cosy café/gallery/restaurant. If you have your laptop with you and are longing for an Internet session (to read travelettes of course) the place has W-LAN. And don’t forget to taste the olive paste!


Bom apetite!
