The city’s brunch trend shows no sign of abating and the latest place on the scene, Can Dendê, lives up to the hype that has surrounded it since opening its doors earlier this year. Located in Poblenou, this unassuming eatery is a little off the beaten track but well worth the hunt. If in doubt, look for the corner with queues of hungry customers out the door. The offerings from the open kitchen include some breakfast classics (eggs benedict, pancakes and French toast) plus a few Brazilian extras thanks to chef, owner and São Paulo native, Leone. You can expect to wait for a table during the busy weekend brunch rush but don’t worry, the wait can be eased with a jug of their famous homemade pink lemonade or a Bloody Mary. Bottoms up.
