Lisbon: Comoba Lisboa

Comoba Lisbon

Here’s another one on our Lisbon Brunch Series! Comoba is a stylish vegan-friendly cafe that focuses on organic and fresh artisanal produce. That probably tells you Comoba is a popular millennials’ hangout spot. And it’s true because as soon as we stepped into the cafe, you see either a group of girls snapping pictures ready to post on Instagram, or you see people burying their heads into their laptops with a coffee on the side.

The cafe was really busy when we arrived. We managed to get seated by the bar after about a five-minute wait. It was absolutely buzzing inside and very lively. But even then, the staff always have a friendly smile on their faces.

Here is what we ordered:

Mango Smoothie

Such healthy fruity items are definitely not my type of thing but I’d like to take a moment just to admire how pretty this looks! Doesn’t this just give you all the summery tropical vibes?

According to my friend, the smoothie tasted decent but it was a bit icy and got watered down very soon. So I guess the verdict is it’s perhaps pretty to look at but not as satisfying as it looked.

Charcoal Latte

I would normally go for a regular coffee, especially how much I have enjoyed Galaos in Portugal. However, seeing a number of unique latte combos on the menu, I decided to try out a Charcoal Latte for fun.

I genuinely didn’t know what to expect for this. I never had a Charcoal Latte before so it’s a complete brand new experience to me. Aesthetic-wise, it’s certainly a photogenic one with especially with its latte art. However, I felt it didn’t have much flavour or taste in it. In addition, it also left a rather gritty aftertaste. I guess it’s safe to conclude that I find this underwhelming.

Matcha Pancakes

For some reason, the Matcha Pancakes took a while to arrive. But the staff was apologetic about it and joked that it’s because he really took time to make a special one from scratch for us. Anyway, the pancakes were very nicely presented, with a dollop of cashew cream and wild berries on top, drizzled with maple syrup, and lightly dusted with matcha powder.

These are actually vegan and gluten-free pancakes – so once again, something new to me to experience. First of all, there was a pretty strong hit of matcha from the pancakes, which was nicely balanced with the light delicate cashew cream. In terms of texture, a vegan pancake isn’t as fluffy as regular pancakes. It was gummier, which was interesting to try out but not my preference.

In summary…

Comoba is certainly a pretty cool spot to check out, but the food didn’t impress me as much. However, if you’re a healthy food enthusiast and love a good chic stylish cafe setting, this is the spot for you!
