Café na Fábrica – A cozy corner in the factory

This is just one of those places where I can easily spend an entire afternoon. It’s perfect in winter time when you can sit inside amongst old books and antiques. When the weather is nice you can sit outside on the patio, with the bridge serving as background, surrounded by the factory-like setting with the numerous arts and design places that pop up here and there throughout LxFactory. That is definitely one of the best spots in Lisbon, where something new arises every day, a cafe, a restaurant, a design shop and cultural places of all sorts.

The food is simple, but tasty. On weekends you have to be prepared for a long wait as the service is often slow. They have focaccias, quiches and some vegetarian dishes, as well as burgers or filled potatoes. But I especially recommend the brunch they serve on weekends. It’s cheaper than most other places in Lisbon, and has plenty to offer. It starts with a soup (also a novelty concerning brunches, and surely a Portuguese one) and then has a wide variety of pastries, salads and sweets that should keep you going for a while.

I particularly enjoy it on Sundays, when I can take a stroll down the market that is set outside on the main street or visit another one of my favourite spots, the bookstore Ler Devagar.
