Best brunch in Porto. The place isn’t cool like the other hip ones however the food is definitely the best. And so is the service. Staff is friendly, service is efficient and breakfast is to die for, especially the pancakes. The only con about it...is that they don’t accept cards. I had to go withdraw from an ATM Machine close-by, and it charged me €3.75 simply for withdrawing from it! 😅More

Delicious brunch our first morning in Porto. Our server was the most delightful, charming and friendly waiter! We had the chicken sandwich, burger (served on hash browns instead of a bun) and the signature pancakes. All delicious!

Wow, wow, wow! We came here having read a blog recommending it and boy were the right! When we arrived they weren’t quite open so we toyed with waiting or going somewhere else and we are so glad we waited! The staff were so friendly...first of all and were able to offer a range of choices and recommendations as well as flipping into different languages which always impresses me. They could not do enough! The food was perfect and wasn’t too expensive either. Everything was so fresh and when you’d finished you didn’t feel too bloated. Everything settled nicely. People were queuing down the road for here and in the rain and I can see why! I would recommend getting there for opening.More

The food was okay, but the waiters were awful. They treated us with indifference and brought our drinks after 20 minutes( just water) and the food after one hour. Of course she forgot about some of the drinks.

Very lovely staff as described by all the other reviewers! Would recommend this place. Only thing for me - I’m useless at a build your own pancake! I want to be told what to order! So I just had the special. Lovely atmosphere and would...return.More

Make sure you come hungry! Came here for brunch with my boyfriend and we both rolled out- the pancakes were incredible! You can customise them exactly how you wish. Highly recommend having the Oreo based pancakes. I had a chai latte to drink and my...boyfriend had the Nutella cappuccino. Service excellent and the staff were so upbeat and friendly!More

Strawberry bowl and cappuccino were delicious and service is spectacular. They opened right on time and the servers were very friendly and attentive. Very hip music and fun playlists too! A highly recommended breakfast/brunch option. Tip: go early! I stood in line 15 minutes prior...to opening on Good Friday and seated right away as the doors swung open.More

Super friendly staff, very accommodating and great food. Customer service levels were through the roof, so helpful and not at all pretentious like some of these places can be. Oreo cappuccino was delicious, pancakes were great (you customise your own stack to your own liking)...and we loved the hummus. Big shout out to the bagels too. You may have to wait and it was cash only when we visited but I wouldn’t let either of those things put me off.More

We went for dinner as a family - with a 9 month old. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The food is amazing, especially the hummus! I would buy buckets of it. We went back for second visit and it didn't dissapoint. If we...go back to Porto we will be returning for sure!!!!!More

Be prepared to queue for a table, but the wait is definitely worth it! Their pancakes are absolutely incredible!!!! They offer a huge selection of toppings so you can create exactly the pancake you desire, including vegan and gluten free options. We both went for...the brunch: pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon, and I added maple syrup. Absolutely delicious! A definite must-try for anyone visiting Porto!More

What's not to love about a restaurant with so many pancake options? I love the ability to customize your own pancakes with whatever you desire- fruits, chocolates, cookies, ice creams, sprinkles, savory, etc. The coffee was also delicious. What led me to this place was...their options with Nutella. The Nutella pancakes and cappuccino did not disappoint! The smoothie bowls also looked pretty delicious, so the plan will be to return sometime in the future. Please do note that it is cash only.More

The pancakes were great and the space is cosy. The staff was ok but the waiting time was a bit too much.

O Diplomata is a cute cafe with a design your own pancakes menu. These are definitely the best pancakes you will find in Porto. We ordered one stack with chantilly and strawberries and a second stack with caramel, chantilly, and Portuguese biscuit crumble. I wish...that maple syrup came standard with the pancakes rather than as a topping, because while the stacks were delicious, it felt like something was missing. We also tried the toast with goat cheese, eggplant, and jam. It was good, but had more goat cheese than any of the other toppings. I wish the menu had more savory options including additional options for eggs beyond just scrambled eggs. The service was great, Elena our host and server, was energetic and super friendly. I definitely recommend this cafe for pancakes and a great vibe. Please note, they are a cash only establishment.More

Loved the vibes. There are plenty of places for great breakfast or brunch, but few also have such lovely staff who genuinely love their job. Food selection is just the right amount of options, quality is amazing and the price is too cheap even in...my opinion. Great for pancakes, acai bowls, eggs, coffee, salads and their soup of the day has been lovely every timeMore
