If you are a fan of bowls, you will love the breakfast bowl at Fauna & Flora. It will give you a boost start to your day, and you will definitely have enough energy to take on a day of exploration in the city of Lisbon. I also recommend this place as a chill spot for a glass of sangria and some snacks in the afternoon.

If you are like me, you often struggle with the decision of what to choose – salty or sweet breakfast. In that case, Heim Cafe is the place to go! Here you don’t have to choose one or the other, you can choose both. For instance, I really recommend the hallomi & egg plate with a small plate of Belgian waffles with berries to end the meal.That will be give you the boost you need for a day of roaming the streets of Lisbon!
Location: Heim Cafe, R. Santos-O-Velho 2 e 4
Actually, Pastel de Nata is the typical breakfast and quick-fix-me-up-snack for locals in Lisbon, and the rest of Portugal for that matter. This is a Portuguese egg custard tart pastry dusted with cinnamon. The absolute best and most popular place to taste this sweet delight is at Pastéis de Belém. Since the opening in 1837, the original recipe of the Pastel de Nata has been kept a secret, and remains unchanged to this day.

The trending area of Príncipe Real is the best place to go for a dinner experience in Lisbon. You should definitely seize the opportunity and take a trip to Peru, while still remaining Portuguese in flavor. What I mean is; check out the restaurant – A Cevicheria. Here you will relish traditional Peruvian dishes like ceviche and pisco sour (among other things), prepared with tropical flavors from both Portugal and Asia. Book a table and call it a fiesta!
