Mornings in the city are fascinating because they always show you the most authentic aspect of how its inhabitants live in their hometown. Drinking coffee at the café is a social activity shared by almost all Portuguese, so it is not surprising that Portugal has developed a unique coffee culture and meets daily at the café. It’s a unique cultural custom which will be explained by our local experts during our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch.
We have designed this adventure to show you these people and the way locals live and interact in the city through the spectrum of food. At each stop of our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch you will taste an important element of the cuisine of Porto and Portugal. You will also learn about the families and history behind each of the cafes, grocery shops and restaurants that you visit.
As food experts, we will guide you through a succession of typical moments of life starting with an elegant café to explore what a typical Portuguese breakfast is like. Our second stop, a most compulsory and traditional moment of the morning, the “café with nata,” will take you through the history of the country. By visiting Porto’s main market you will also learn about another classic moment of the morning known as “lanchar,” which could be also called second breakfast, or morning snack.
You’ll visit the most authentic gems on the off-the-beaten-track in the Bolhão neighborhood, and you’ll weave in and out of locals doing their shopping as you learn about their daily customs and traditions during our Petiscos Porto Brunch. By the end of the adventure, you’ll know exactly what it means to eat petiscos and live like a local!
First, we will begin our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch at exactly the peak time for many cafés, and will start our journey with a unique, and most typical, local breakfast. To continue the adventure, we will pass by a homemade cake bakery to try delicious bites of warm pasteis de nata. Then, as a third stop, we believe that any good food tour, especially in the morning, must include a local food market! That is why we have chosen the most typical and high-quality markets in town, to continue our adventure and show you some of the best fresh products our region offers.
Your tasty bites during our Petiscos Porto Market Brunch include jamon presunto (Portuguese ham), local cheeses, delicious olives, and our incredible Porto wine. On our way to the last stop you will discover a very old grocery from the 1900s with local specialty foods; the flavors and scents of this place are magical! To finish up after these four very different experiences, we will end up like locals do, in one of the most popular restaurants in the area. This is a favorite spot among the residents, for what is, again, a must-do local tradition, the bifana sandwich of Porto and Portuguese beer! It’s quite an old specialty of the city and you will discover why Porto’s residents are called the “Tripeiros.”

Thomas has a tour of "hole in the wall wine bars, restaurants and delicatessens where we were presented with local food beautifully prepared and presented with matching wines. We were exposed to many unique aspects of Portuguese cuisine and wines. All in a delightful evening that defines what travel is about - convivial company, good food and wine and an unique cultural experience
Extraordinary! It was definitely a unique experience. And a great opportunity to discover the city. Thomas knows his neighborhood and its history and he was a fantastic and funny guide. All the dishes are perfectly paired with wines and the alcohols were very delicates. All the places together are like a nice, tasty and exhaustive painting of what could be Lisbon. Take your camera too. There are opportunities to take marvelous pictures on the tour!
I absolutely loved this tour! Thomas took us to 5 AMAZING spots that I would have never discovered on my own! So much food and (Website hidden by Airbnb) come hungry and thirsty! I highly recommend!
Thomas was great! I really enjoyed each place he took us to. I also enjoyed the other people in the tour (two Americans and an Aussie). The food and wine were great! Such a great way to spend an evening!!! I wouldn’t have found these places or neighborhoods on my own.
