This place became our mainstay for breakfast during our visit to Lisbon. The 9.9 euro breakfast brunch deal is amazing! The location is good, the interior is adorable, the service is excellent, and there's a fantastic antique bookshop a couple buildings down which is also worth a visit.

I came here hoping for gluten free but with an extensive range of sandwiches, pastries, pies and soups, the only thing I could have was a smoked salmon and feta salad that was quite large but very boring. (I had told the waitress about the gluten allergy but she didn't suggest anything). Also some "chips" which turned out to be... More

Quinoa is a great small place for breakfast or lunch. They have a Sun. Brunch, too. The duck empadas are especially delicious. Attentive and helpful service.

On the advice of our apartment host we had lunch at the Quinoa restaurant in Lisbon. They have a small range of gluten free items on the menu, something that is rare in Portugal. The food and service was good and the staff friendly.

Not a traditional place, but bright and modern. We had lunch here--good quiche and scrambled eggs-- and also breakfast with yogurt and fruit. Rather expensive compared to other places in Lisbon, but convenient and opens at 9.

We visited this spot twice over our trip to Lisbon. Two great brunch offerings are on the menu, the €15 would nearly do two people. We had a friendly server who remembered us from our first visit.

We visited Quinoa in the hopes of having breakfast. They had two options for brunch - one for 9e, one for 15e - so we decided having the second one because it was a larger meal and we weren't going be able to eat for hours after that. The waitress came over asking what drinks we wanted to have, which... More

Went here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Great little cafe - friendly server. Nice selection of cakes and pastries. It was before 10am but I had the set brunch menu of croissant, Ham and cheese, jam, Nutella, fresh granola yoghurt and fruit and fresh bread, coffee and fresh juice. All at a very reasonable price too. Good quality. Visit,... More

The decor was very nice and relaxing. The bagel and lox was okay pretty small for the price. The drink was refreshing, a ginger, papaya and something else. But was also small for the price. So I consider a little overpriced spot, but a nice place to relax.
