Nicolau Cafe | Healthy, tasty & laid back kingdom

I bet you’re wondering wtf is Nicolau or what it means. No? You should. It’s the posh dog responsible for this place. You’ll see him… framed.

Well, this cafe is a breath of fresh air amidst the downtown. It opened in August this year and it’s part of Home Lisbon Hostel – don’t let this detail fool you since you can’t even noticed it. What’s cool about this place is that they serve a great brunch (for 13,00€)… everyday! Yeah, no more Saturdays or Sundays only annoying options. They have some of the best pancakes in town. Let me spell it, B-E-S-T. Hence, there are tons of other healthy and very tasty options on the menu. I bet you’ll return right after your first visit (#guilty).

Hot tip: There is a vinyl record player in the room and you can choose from their music options and play the vinyl you want. Nice move!

Don’t miss: Their lattes and cappuccinos – the type leaving you with a proper foamy moustache. My favorite is the Matcha – properly made and the best I’ve tried so far in… Portugal!
