A Definitive List of Lisbon’s 10 Best Brunches

Recently, a phenomenon has spread around the world like wildfire. Everyone, from all ages and walks of life, has leapt on board the bandwagon of this particular craze; and I’m definitely here for it. The name of this phenomenon? BRUNCH.

Originally coined as a term for anyone who woke up too late for breakfast but wasn’t quite ready for a full meal, brunch was, interestingly, made popular by Americans during the 1930s. It turns out that they knew what they were doing. It’s difficult nowadays to find a cafe or restaurant in a major city that doesn’t boast a brunch menu: and Lisbon is certainly no exception to this rule.

It seems that every corner is home to a perfectly-furnished, cozy-yet-minimalist brunch spot, frequented by tourists and locals alike. But sometimes, having so many options can be a little overwhelming; so, to help you out, I’ve compiled a list of my top-10 brunch spots in the city, and the best things on the menu (in my opinion, of course). Expect quirky menus, many an avocado, and a lot of pancakes.
