Decided to visit here because the reviews were so good. Arrived at 9.30am and there was a waiting list for a table but only for 10mins. The staff were polite and helpful and English is widely spoken.
Enjoyed a substantial brunch (I've included pics) plus drinks which worked out at €15 per person not including a tip. Food was plentiful and great quality.
Lots of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options on the menu.
Recommended.

Based on a friend’s recommendation we decided to give it a try at Nicolau Cafe. Had the best healthy meal, green juice and service! Highly recommend it!
FYI- There was a very short wait time, but worth every minutes!

There can be a bit of a wait but it's totally worth it. Everything looks perfect and tastes accordingly. Well... except for the Americano coffee which was way too strong!

The painting of Patron Saint dachshund Nicolau is the cherry on top! Do not miss this gem of a café!

I’ve been to Nicolau three times already and I gotta say I pretty much tried everything from the menu. It gets crowded, noisy and you might have to wait in line, but the food is completely worth it, plus the staff is really nice and works very fast! Totally recommend!

Walked 15 min to eat here. Was told wait was 30 min inside but that there was no wait outside. Nobody came to take our order and when I asked they said they were not serving outside and we could not order inside and take the food outside to eat.

Disappointed.
