Coffee Guide: Lisbon

The Mill

R. do Poço dos Negros 1

This place is my favorite Lisbon coffee spot where I had the best cup of coffee during our stay in Lisbon. The specially sourced beans are roasted locally in Lisbon and the cafe serves up both Portuguese cups (pingado) and Australian cups (flat whites) alike. The coffee shop has great vibes too, and sometimes has a line to get in that extends around the corner. If you’re in town, this coffee shop can’t be missed.


Rua de S. Paulo 99

If the mill is my favorite, COMOBA is a very close second. This spot serves up great organic coffee, an array of alternative lattes (including my favorite - matcha), and brunch-y dishes in a gorgeous, open and airy space. They even have a hidden space right at the back of the cafe to sit outdoors, hidden from the busy street.

Hello Kristof

R. do Poço dos Negros 103

I knew of Hello Kristof before I even made it to Lisbon - all thanks to Instagram. This coffee shops is beautifully set up and truly is an Instagrammer’s dream. The coffee is good - but it was the atmosphere that really made me come back again and again. It’s the perfect spot to take a break, have a coffee, a pastry and catch up on some reading.

Copenhagen Coffee Lab

10, R. Nova da Piedade

I lucked out with how close my Lisbon accommodation was to one of the many Copenhagen Coffee Lab branches, so this one is extra special as it was my morning cup (and sometimes my afternoon fika). This coffee shop is always busy but is never packed, its vibes are relaxing but not too still. They serve a couple of roasts at a time and always have fresh pastries available.
