Tasty food, reasonable prices, pleasant surroundings

A nice place for lunch if you are in this area of Lisbon. Pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. Good vegetarian options. It is easy to get ripped of around this area, so it is worth seeking out.

We had the Quinoa brunch which was a feast of cheese, ham, scrambled eggs, bread, croissant, juice, hot drink and yogurt/muesli. The goats cheese was the star cheese, very creamy. Staff were helpful. A bit too clinically clean and bright for me, I like a cosier atmosphere but I definitely recommend this place.

This was the first place we ate in Lisbon, and it was the perfect way to start out long weekend in Lisbon, and the perfect way to start the day. I had the set brunch meny, which was amazing. I wish I could have breakfast/brunch here every day, but we had to check out some other places as well. Unfortunately... More

Nice location, very clean and modern (and quite, no music). The bagel was ok, but the salade was not very good considering the price. The salade wasn't fresh, or came out of a bag. They tried to make homemade lemonade/juices, but those where not very special. Not bad but definitely not great. I would not recommend this place.

Very nice place. The food tastes great and everything is fresh! A huge selection from scrambled, soups, Quinoa salad, fresh bread to fresh fruit salad, awesome Granola and yogurt. If you are looking for fresh and healthy breakfast in Lisboa, this is the place to go! 👍🏻

went here for the sunday brunch and really enjoyed the setup and the kind of food they have put together, sadly the taste of the itself could not keep up, either to little or too much seasoning / taste nothing really well balanced, making me question if the kitchen even tried what they have shipped

I found this restaurant on a list of 10 places to have breakfast in Lisbon, so we set off to find it on our first morning in Lisbon. It is fairly small, but we had a very nice breakfast. Both of us had scrambled eggs, mine with asparagus and my husband's with smoked salmon. It was beautifully served with fresh... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
