If you have trouble making decisions when you’re faced with a delicious menu, head to Royale Café, located in the stylish Chiado district. Inspired by the Nordic café life, guests choose from two specialties of a seasonal menu: one dish features farinheirasausage and São Jorge cheese, while the other features traditional Portuguese pastry. Offered are also fresh berries, moist cakes, juice, and of course coffee.
Located in the “hipster” part of the Chiado neighborhood is Tartine, a Padaria and restaurant well known for their delicious brunch, tartines, and waffles. If you’re looking for a hearty brunch, or to satisfy your sweet tooth with delicious pastries and desserts, be sure to have a meal at Tartine.
Palacete Chafariz D'El Rei
A trendy restaurant located in Alfama, Palacete Chafariz D’El Rei offers some of the best brunch in the city. Contrary to the stained glass and stuccoed ceilings of this lavish mansion, the food on the menu sticks to simple, basic ingredients including bread rolls, homemade jams, and a variety of meats and cheeses.

For a Bavarian, vegetarian, gluten-free brunch, Kaffeehaus is the place to go. Though many shops and restaurants are closed on Sundays, Kaffehaus, which is located in the heart of Lisbon, remains open, and is thus an extremely popular restaurant for Sunday brunch. Don’t forget to try the liptauer speck toast or perhaps the schnitzel with a paulaner.
Appropriately named Fabulas, this cavish-style restaurant is a local favoruite. Fabulas offers a large selection of food, both traditional Portuguese flavors and classic breakfast staples. For warmer days, there’s an esplanade where you can enjoy your meal in the beautiful sunshine.
