The areas of Lapa and Santos have become really trendy in the last years. Many buildings have been purchased and renovated, giving room to nice restaurants, artistic shops, and concept cafés. This is a lovely area to explore, and also to enjoy a tasty meal after all the sightseeing. So, if you’re wondering where to have brunch in Santos or Lapa, here are my favourites 🙂

The Mill – a hip, trendy Australian-Portuguese cafe with a great ambience. They serve specialty coffee and all-day breakfasts and brunches. Normally it’s pretty packed, so there might be a line to enter, especially at the weekends.
