Back in the days when hardly anyone in Portugal knew what mother dough was, Tartine had already sought out a French baker to work with the must trustworthy of raw material for bread. But it was not just in their baking methods that they were local pioneers. They also gave a new meaning to the most important meal of the day – breakfast – and boosted the status of the word “brunch” in locals’ culinary lexicon. From their base in Chiado to the Mercado da Ribeira they’ve brought some of their bestsellers, such as Eggs Benedict, Royal and Florentine, their tartines, salads, pancakes and, of course, bread. They have recently increased the offer with the inclusion of homemade Hot Dogs, in brioche bread and homemade sausages. Available from breakfast to dinner.
