a café guide to Lisbon, Portugal: the coolest coffee shops + best brunch in Lisbon

Wondering where to find the best brunch and coffee in Lisbon? Wonder no longer! I’ve created this post with the five of my favourite brunch and coffee spots in the Portuguese capital. With only a week in Lisbon, I feel like I scoped out some seriously fantastic cute cafés, creative coffee, and classic brunch menus in the midst of all the city exploring. The Portuguese have a long-standing history of café socializing making them my kind of people. As an avid brunch goer myself, I felt spoilt by all the cafés that awaited me in Lisbon. Local haunts with beautiful baked goods and modern joints with innovative food— Lisbon has it all.

a café guide to Hanoi, Vietnam: where to find quirky cafés, prime work spaces, + the very best coffee

Vietnam runs on coffee. And not in a way that many modern cities do, where Instagram-worthy interiors drive business. In Vietnam, coffee is not a trend but rather a ceremonious part of the local lifestyle. I knew it the first time I stepped foot in the country that we were akin that way— a deep love not only for the taste of espresso, but an appreciation for the ritual of coffee.

a café guide to Prague, Czech Republic: the best hidden cafés + where to find them

Prague is quickly catching the attention of happy café-hoppers looking for the right ambience and a delicious cup of drip. I was out amongst the architecture of the city and its cobblestone streets for 12 hours almost every day I was in Prague, only escaping the cold for brief interludes in hidden cafés I would stumble upon. The best places are always the ones that are harder to find, away from main roads, or hidden in plain sight— these cafés are no exception!

the big guide to Bangkok: where to stay, where to eat, and what to do in Thailand's capital

After years of bouncing around Bangkok on self-guided visits, long layovers, and group tours…I’ve finally put together a comprehensive guide I’m proud of. While it’s no secret every trip to Bangkok has been riddled with bad luck for me, looking back at these photos also made me realize…I’ve had so many fun memories in the capital city. It might have suffered the fate of the tourist boom {i.e. a Starbucks, H&M, and McDonald’s on every corner}, but it’s also got lots to see and do, great food, and alluring temples.

While in Hamilton, I found myself writing a lot in cafes, surprised by how many of them exist. I was also surprised by the vegan food scene that exists {though, I didn’t take full advantage as I was happily trying out my domestic skills in Tash’s kitchen whenever I could}.

a brunch guide to Kuala Lumpur: what to order + where to go

I wrote my first brunch guide years and years ago when I realized I spent an abundance of my time in ordering coffees, cafe hopping being something I truly find joy in. However, there have been one or two of these brunch guides that have only offer a few options— NOT ENOUGH! We like as many cafes as possible, always. So, when I returned to Kuala Lumpur thanks to Air Asia, this time, I spent a week in Malaysia, and more than a few days in its capital city so that I could take in all the adventure and eat all the brunch {literally like two brunches a day were had}.

FOR THOSE WHO ANSWERED MY INSTA-POLL WANTING A BRUNCH GUIDE, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.
