Going for brunch is one of my favourite Sunday activities and since I moved back to Portugal I’ve happily made it my goal to try and find the best around where I live. If you’re in Lisbon but want to take a small trip to coastal town Cascais, then you should definitely try one of these fabulous brunches. If you’re staying in Cascais or close by, lucky you!
Inside the beautiful Cascais Miragem hotel and by the pool is where you’ll find Oasis Restaurant and the divine brunch they serve on Sundays. There’s a selection of food for all tastes, seafood, vegetarian cuisine, soup in small shot glasses, appetisers inspired by world cuisine, a cheese and charcuterie section. And, there’s even an area with mains which you can select from the hot bar. And if you didn’t think this was mouthwatering enough, there’s a dessert section which was for me the highlight of this brunch. For those warm summer days don’t forget to ask for a table outside.
