Currently sat at the table and the service and food has been excellent. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a must as is the extra large croissants.

Fair prices but very slow service! Coffee quality was fine but it was already cold when they served the sandwiches!

One of few available options for early breakfast in Lisbon (opens at 08.00). The ambiance is nice, a kind of hipster-vintage style, food (sandwiches) also good. The only inconvenience - bad coffee - burnt, underbrewed, no taste

I do not know if they were having a bad day.. but, burnt coffee and not great service makes me wonder how they got these good reviews. The almond croissant was good though.

We had lunch and I really enjoyed my Tuna and wine. We did the outside seating. Got pastries to go, and they were awesome. Good people watching location.

Firstly, know that language will be an issue. You will have to point at the menu items for the staff to understand, what you would like to have. Doesn't really bother me though. During my visit, there were plenty of locals inside, which is always...More

We were served by a very rude and unfriendly waitress. I ordered eggs. When it came I politely asked for the bread to be toasted: the waitress was very annoyed. She rudely took away the bread and didn’t return for at least ten minutes. Meanwhile...More

Overall this was a very pleasant experience. I had the avocado toast with scrambled eggs that were slightly overcooked and underseasoned, but very tasty otherwise. The bread, especially was excellent. The salmon croissant was delicious, definitely recommend that. The drinks were OK, freshly squeezed OJ...More

It was our first place to try in Lisbon. Got a table by 09:45 then it was full and a queue for ages. The avocado on toast was amazing. The bread was something special. Totally recommend and would love to go back!

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

Next time you pass through Rua da Madalena be aware: if you hear a bell it's fresh bread/croissant time! That's the way Fábrica Lisboa invites customers to taste their croissants, bread or pastry. And the smell of freshly baked croissants that sits in the air when as we entered the new bakery in Rua da Madalena is simply irresistible. It is humanly impossible to resist the temptation to try a croissants with butter, cheese or ham, accompanied by freshly squeezed orange juice. Fábrica Lisbon have its own production, which means that the croissants, bread, pies or cakes are constantly coming out of the oven, which is live in front of the customers. In addition, Fábrica Lisbon deserves a long visit to appreciate the vintage decoration with delightful details, like old scales, bottles, bread boxes or old phones. Even the coffee machine is vintage: try the high quality expresso with the famous Fabrica Lisboa cheesecake or a handmade pain au raisin. Traditional portuguese soups, sandwiches made with traditional rustic bread receipts, pies and fresh salads are also served and more news to come.
