Featuring: Quinoa

Quinoa is a biological bakery, cafe and gourmet grocery store in the heart of Chiado, Lisbon. The building is over 100 years old and the atmosphere inside is nothing short of comfortable. Quinoa's mission is to serve delicious, light and healthy food such as sandwiches, salads and soups - with the occassional Portuguese twist. While I was there last weekend I got a delicious sandwich with lox and cream cheese, while a friend of mine got a bagel with brie, honey and nuts! So simple yet sooo good. And we could not leave without dessert...

chocolate cake with a hint of PORT VHINO for extra sweetness ;) 
gourmet groceries including jams, teas, olive oils, cookies... 
"TO COOK IS NOT SERIVCE MY GRANDSON," SHE SAID. "TO COOK IS A WAY TO SHOW LOVE TO OTHERS."


This is the perfect place to go for a meal, sweet treat or to find some new groceries. The staff is incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is incredibly relaxing. Don't forget that QUINOA will be saved in the where to eat page of dragon fruit! :)
