The Best Coffee Shops In Lisbon

1. Tease

This cute and quirky cafe knows a thing or two about great house coffees, delicious gourmet cupcakes and an inviting atmosphere. It is ideally located on Rua da Quintinha, making it easy to pop in for a Nutella coffee before exploring Lisbon for the day.

2. Le Petit Prince Culture Cafe

This cosy coffee shop is piled high with books, many of which are different editions of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince. Known for their insta-worthy latte art and excellent roast options, they’ve also got an impressive brunch menu.

3. Copenhagen Coffee Lab

The first thing about Copenhagen Coffee Lab is that it screams minimalist chic. The sleek style isn’t a surprise given its Danish owners whose landmark store is in Copenhagen. As if the aesthetic weren’t enough, they also have extensive options for your cup of joe. Whether you’re looking for a good ole french press or a Chemex pour-over or something fancier like a v60, they’ve got you covered.

4. Hello, Kristof

This fresh roast cafe is perfect for anyone with some work or to do. Long communal tables make it an organised and functional workspace. On your downtime, take a break and read one of the many magazines on the wall or just enjoy the mood. If you’re hungry, grab a bite of the house granola or smoked salmon on toast.

5. Bettina & Niccolo Corallo

Aside from offering great coffee, Bettina & Niccola Corallo wows people with their homemade chocolate assortment. Smooth sorbet, rich brownies and chocolate-dipped oranges seem to be crowd favourites. What makes Bettina & Niccolo even more special is that it’s tucked away indiscreetly in Príncipe Real giving it a local and homey feel.

6. Heim

Famous for their brunch options with the most creative pancakes on the Atlantic coast, Heim will not leave you wanting. Take note that due to their popularity, they are usually busy, but it is definitely worth the wait! Be sure to grab a classic Americano and a spot outside on the terrace.

7. Quase Cafe

Quase Cafe is in Alfama, one of Lisbon’s most historic and post-card worthy areas. Its  streets are full of artisans ready to sell you the finest Portuguese goods on your way to São Jorge. Then, there’s Quase.

Tucked away on a side street away from the hustle and bustle its truly a hidden gem. It checks all the boxes for great coffee, cosy atmosphere, sizable portions (yum!), friendly staff and central location.

Thanks for the list, Melanie. I’ve missed a few coffee shops from that list, something to look forward next time I am in Lisbon. I could recommend Fabrica Specialty roasters and coffee shop, which I greatly enjoyed.
