Dear Breakfast is an odd to morning foods featuring properly cooked eggs, exquisite coffee and juice you will want to start every day with.
With a love for the idea of having brunch everyday, Julien Garrec opened the first Dear Breakfast outpost in July 2017 in the Sao Bento district of Lisbon. A welcome addition to the ever growing foodie hotspot list in this neighborhood which host the Time Out market.
Dear Breakfast mixes influences from international cultures with downtown Lisbon cool to create a concept aesthetically interesting, taste-bud stimulating, and decidedly healthy to boot. Inspired by the idea of developing egg-centric dishes paired with creative juices and cocktails, the Chef Raquel Patronilho (ex Ritz Lisbon) executes a seasonal menu of organic, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible for an all-day breakfast.
Set over two levels, the restaurant has been dressed by architects Carlos Aragao and Joao Pombeiro Machado (Studio Astolfi), who smoothed out the existing exposed brick walls, build cement arches and add a giant mirror to the ceiling as a trompe l’oeil who marvels everyone who steps inside. Downstairs, a secret room will host on September the most intimate breakfast of the city. And despite the trendy downtown vibe, you won’t find any mason jars or refurbished whimsical objects atop your table : the design is clean and bright with white-washed walls and portuguese marble tables.
Sit on a comfy chairs, wake up at a leisurely speed to low-fi music on the sound system, and tuck into a delicious meal that may include eggs Rothko (a slice of brioche with a hole in the middle that accommodates a sunny-side-up egg, all of which is covered with cheese), eggs benedict or a terrific truffled omelet.
Dear Breakfast kitchen is open for breakfast lovers from everywhere, all day.
