I'd like to rate it "good" if there was the option. It is a bit overrated, much talked about. I've had their "tosta mista" and it was very average. They have good "empadas" though. The highlight are the bagels, which is not easy to find in Portugal. Other than that, I expected more for the price. You can find better... More

I went there on a Saturday morning and had a very nice breakfast. Bagel was excellent with the coffee and chocolate cake. :-)

Read that this was a gluten free cafe, but they didn't have any gluten free food on the menu. We looked at the menu and found that it was overpriced. Better cafés found elsewhere that offer gluten free desserts like sweet rice.

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.
