I visited Lisbon at the height of morning sickness (10 weeks pregnant) and coffee was the last thing on my mind. In fact, just the smell of roasting coffee beans made me want to gag. There were a ton of cafes on my list (which I had made before I knew I was pregnant), but I got got to visit a handful this trip. Still, I think I had a good sampling of the modern cafes of Lisbon and put together this list in order of favorite.
Copenhagen Coffee Lab
A place so good I had to visit twice! Delicious drinks, sandwiches, and desserts, all with a Scandinavian flair.
Trendy hipster café located in the LX Factory area adjacent to a store that bears the same name. Fantastic coffee and cake!
Foreign-run place with delicious breakfast. Not really a laptop-friendly café, but an excellent morning stop that is popular among tourists.
Near Rossio Square, some of the best lattes we had in Lisbon are found in this café.
Café-slash-art and paint supplies store on the waterfront right across from the TimeOut Market.
Sweet little café in the Estrela neighborhood with baked treats and coffee
Pois CaféA quirky café in Alfama with walls lined with books and records. Good food and juice with a hostel vibe.
