Hg2 : The Hedonist

Pao de Canela

This popular Lisbon tearoom and restaurant Pao de Canela, is named after the cinnamon stick – the ubiquitous coffee-table condiment used by Lisboetas to sweeten a bitter bica. Large round tables and pine dressers filled with crockery attract a tastefully dressed middle-class crowd in search of a relaxed breakfast that extends beyond cakes and pastries.
rnConversation is civilised and the service friendly. Stylish ladies who lunch discuss Gucci glasses and Prada handbags over a choux pastry, while at weekends young families settle down for a spot of brunch. This is one of the very few spots open on a Sunday.
rnOverlooking the leafy and peaceful Praça das Flores, the decked outdoor terrace fills up quickly. Unfortunately it’s completely shrouded in shade, but a lack of sunlight does little to detract from this bijou venue’s homely warmth. An adjoining restaurant opens in the evening when the café has closed.
