Fauna & Flora, a healthy and delicious brunch

Hi all! How are you all feeling after, I might say, the most disappointing summer of all time in Portugal? I have never experienced such ridiculous temperatures as the ones we’ve had this year. Low twenties in mid-July and mid-thirties in August? This is not what I call a real summer experience and I am sorry for all of you who either moved to Portugal or booked a holiday looking for a hot summer. I too feel bummed about all this nonsense and what do I do when I’m feeling down and need a pick me up? Go for brunch, who doesn’t?

That’s why last week I ventured into Lisbon and went to try one of it’s newest and most popular brunch spot: Fauna & Flora in Madragoa, right next to the Assembleia da Republica (the Portuguese Parliament) and not far from river Tagus. We loved the space, once you step in you can immediatly feel zen. The calming influences of a forestal decoration takes over the walls and the surroundings.

The brunch menu is filled with delicious options, from granola and smoothie bowls to different types of pancakes, avocado toasts and snacks. My husband and I both had toasts, I chose the Avotoast and he had the Terycow.

To drink, I had red fruits juice and for dessert? Of course, we had to try the chocolate brownie which was very rich but also very tasty. I couldn’t even finish it. I loved it so much, nothing like a delicious meal to forget about this depressing weather.
