Being in Lisbon for a week enabled us to discover the best breakfast spots. We had a few misses and an Airbnb breakfast but we’re here to deliver you the best and most Instagrammable breakfast spots in Lisbon.
Hello Kristof is Lisbon’s answer to quality coffee, it was the best we found on our trip and we went to a fair few places. The barista really knew his stuff and the non-dairy milk options were great to see. The food menu is limited to the perfect selection.
We saw some mouthwateringly good avocado on toast be delivered to a nearby table but the salmon on toast with cream cheese was my perfect start to the day… Danny’s cinnamon roll was the perfect accompaniment to our lattes too.
Hello Kristof know that coffee and magazines go hand in hand, that’s why their curated collection is so inviting. This really is the perfect place for a lazy morning.
And… if you can’t get a seat, you can always grab some of their sweet treats to go!

From it’s concrete floors to it’s whitewashed, alcoved interior. Dear Breakfast’s navy and blush velvet seating combined with the scattered plants make for a millennial Instagrammer’s dream.
The menu has a range of options including acai bowls and a variety of egg options.
Danny opted for the eggs benedict, his favourite. Whilst I opted for the Eggs Rothko which is a dish I’d never heard of before but it was delicious. A slice of thickly toasted brioche with a hole in the middle missing, replaced with a poached egg and cheese. This was paired with a side of chorizo and tomatoes. I really enjoyed this and I’d encourage you to order something different next time you go for breakfast as you might be on to a winner. It would great to recreate something similar to this at home.

We spotted Heim Cafe when we were walking to LX Factory one morning and I knew instantly that they would serve a delicious brunch, the place was packed and you can’t make a reservation. However, on the following Saturday, we got there for just after 9.30 and we had our choice of tables before all the other brunch lovers turned up.
The menu has a variety of options, they have a couple of set brunch options of you can create your own. We both opted for slightly different set brunches but we had no idea how much food was included. It truly was a feast.
There was such a variety included in the brunch’s, from waffles to granola pots and fruit salad, we almost forgot our hot food was coming.
