    Hi, do you have any breakfast suggestions quickly? We are in Lisbon now and I can’t find anything!!!

    Caitlin, we usually grabbed a pastry and bica from one of the bakeries or plaza kiosks. We did have a nice brunch at Noobai Café, but they don’t open until noon. I would still go and check them out. Have a great time in Lisbon it is an amazing city!

    Hi,
    quite a coincidence. Just came across your blog and the first post I see is about Lisbon, my city.

    Just trying to help Caitlin a bit:
    If it is sunny visit Clara Clara café in Campo de Santa Clara near the nicest flea market in town Feira da Ladra (on Tuesdays and Saturdays).
    For a relax atmosphere inside doors but not totally portuguese: Pois Café, which is very close to the big church (Sé de Lisboa) and Alfama, rua são joão da praça 93-95.
    If you go to Graça viewpoint (Miradouro) there is also a really nice pastry place around, called Pastelaria Centro Ideal. Nothing fancy but truly portuguese.
    One of the oldest in Lisboa and a beautiful place is Pastelaria Versailles in Avenida da República 15 (Saldanha tube stop).
    Also, in an amazing indoor building, there is Casa do Alentejo in R. Portas de santo Antão, nº 58 (not far from Restauradores). I don’t actually know if they do breakfast but just go there for the place.
    Don’t miss the Pasteis de Belém (the place has the same name) and it is in Belém near the big Monastery and Art Museum.

    These are just a few but as Claire said there is a lot of small bakeries and kiosks around you can try.
    Noobai is also nice and it is near Adamastor, which is a great viewpoint to the river.

    Enjoy it!
