I first discovered Pão de Canela when trying to come up with a place to have an affordable brunch with friends – I was enchanted by the location as well as the food, and ended up having a fabulous time. You, as I did, may think that when we’re with friends, sometimes it seems no matter where we are, we always end up having fun; but I’ve been coming back to Pão de Canela, and no matter who I am with, I always ended up having an amazing experience and a stomach full of yummy food… so I’m starting to think that this “secret-in-plain-sight” in Lisbon should be shared with everyone!
Not only the decoration is homey and beautiful, but the food is full of flavor. The buffet style brunch also has items for the vegans and the gluten-intolerants, which is a plus in my book – and when you’re done, go for a walk around the square and enjoy the area – take note of this as the perfect plan for a lazy Sunday! (Brunch is from 10:00 – 17:00 on Sundays.)
