We went here for breakfast and it was fantastic!! The portions are huge so you could consider sharing, but it's so good you might not want to. I had the special black tea which was different but really good.

U need to wait approx 20/30mn prior getting a table and that’s totally fine as apparently it’s a place where to go to. Then u find out that Wi-Fi is not working and u can’t use your hotspot either as network inside is pretty poor;...still on the tech side POS was not working which is quite astonishing in 2022 so I had to withdraw cash at an ATM. Value for money is fine because in the end I paid 15 euro for a Nordic brunch. Again it was ok but nothing crazy for example the avocado was not very mature hence quite hard and salad and tomatoes did not have any taste. The waiters were really nice and in general location is cool. Considering the target of people this place attracts young travellers they really need to work on have Wi-Fi working as well as credit card machine.More

Cost, friendly cafe. Clearly popular judging by the permanent queue to get in. Only criticism was that we ordered too much - the portions are generous, be warned ( hardly a criticism). There was nothing to fault. Creative, simple foot extremely well presented. Don’t miss.

Got 2 different dishes because I was super hungry, none of them had anything going for it. No taste, especially not the fruits, pancakes are some kind of mushy thing...I truly can't fathom how this place got such good ratings.More

Best breakfast! Googled best breakfast places in Porto and these popped up and so glad we made the visit. Small wait for a table but well worth it. Both dishes delicious and coffee lovely. Best service aswel that we've had in Porto.

We went to Do Norte for breakfast our last day in Porto. We got a table immediately and the service was fast and friendly. We ordered the brunch platter and shared it (two people) and we still couldn't finish it. There was so much bacon!...The coffee were great and we were stuffed. For what you get it's an amazing value. Highly recommend!More

We looked for a breakfast location near our hotel and found the do norte cafe - best decision. Price-performance was good and the different breakfast offers were so delicious! We entered around 9.15 and got a table immediately, around 10.30 we left and there was...a long queue.More

Great breakfast cafe with deliciously fresh food and good service. I had the savory pancakes which were more like latkes but incredibly delicious alongside a ginger latte with a ton of bright real ginger flavor. Highly recommend.

It was only on our last day, staying in Rua do Alamada, that we by chance decided to get in the line in front of the Do Norte cafe to get some food before starting our trip back home. If only that had been on...the first day of our stay in Porto! If so, I'm certain we would have been there every morning. The food was great, the service quick and polite and the place is really cozy. So if you decide to check the place out, don't be put off by the queue, it's worth the wait.More

We went four times in a row. Everything tastes amazing. Doesnt matter what I got. If you go early you can get a table right away. Later expect waiting time.

A warning that this place is busy and you will need to wait. We only waited 15 minutes and it was worth it. The space is lovely and the service fast. We had a big spread of food and drinks - everything was delicious and...perfect. Great space for breakfast, brunch or lunch.More
