They are creating a fictional line when they have tables available inside and outside. Not very good customer service Food is ok

The best presented scrambled egg that I've had. Substantial portion size. Good vibe with chilled music, interesting aesthetic and lots of other customers.

Lovely breakfast at this cafe, bit of a queue to get in but it moved quickly and was worth it. Lots of nice juice and smoothies to choose from for drinks which made a change from many other places in Lisbon I found, we both...had an egg dish each I had the eggs with beetroot humus and my OH had scrambled egg and bacon , both really good but the star had to be the banana and caramel pancakes we shared. You can see why this place is famous for pancakes they were like a dream and neither of us are huge sweet tooths but we polished it off .. absolutely delicious. I also saw them give a portion of pancakes to a homeless man which I thought was great.More

We stumbled across this place for breakfast, we somehow timed it perfectly as within 15 minutes of sitting down there was a queue for tables. The food was amazing and reasonably priced, will be visiting again

Bright and breezy place in the city centre grid for all day dining. This time lunch on the terrace. Service friendly and attentive enough if at times variable in velocity. Went with the Ovos Amélia, Eggs Amélia, after the City's famous Fadista. Lovely. Tomato toast...with spinach, avo, poached eggs and tumeric hummus. Very nice combination. An espresso chaser to follow. Most diners outside so service was OK today. But I'm never in a hurry here...More

Best breakfast in town - healthy, fresh ingredients paired with a great choice of different variations. A heaven for vegetarians and vegans. Staff was relaxed and friendly - loved it

Went there for brunch. Everything we ate tasted amaizing. Waiterers were nice and friendly. Downpart is the fact that service was slow (the place wasnt busy at the time). It took them 40 minutes to bring two dishes. Two of the tables were served before...us although they arrived later. But when the food came it was worth the wait.More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
