The most important meal of the day is breakfast! Thus, you should make it as healthy as possible so you won’t lose your momentum during the day. To help you with that, we have put together a list of the best places for healthy breakfasts in Macau to keep you looking and feeling good.
Healthy Habits Superfood Cafe
(See featured image above)
The name says it all. Healthy Habits Superfood Cafe is ideal for those of us who truly care about what our food is made of and where it came from. With all-day breakfast, the menu is pretty big and features different types of breakfast dishes from light to substantial. All of them are cooked with carefully selected ingredients using methods that help to maintain most of the nutrients. Their team strives to use mostly organic products when possible. For egg breakfast fans, they have a regular and a white omelet with smoked salmon, mushrooms, and veggies served with a kale salad on the side. Ask for homemade keto bread for an additional MOP $10 if you wish. If eggs are not your thing, there are sweet and savory toasts, waffles, and banana pancakes that won’t leave an aftertaste of regret, four types of wraps, including a vegetarian one, also served with kale salad. An excellent source of fiber, overnight oats, or porridge would be a healthy breakfast choice as well.
Moreover, there’re many dishes out of the breakfast menu perfect for starting your day with. Acai bowl or chia pudding will provide you with the necessary vitamins and energy for the day. Accompany your meal with a balanced smoothie, cold-pressed juice, or a nutritional latte. You can order your latte with plant-based milk.
Another great feature of the place is their delivery option. You can place an order by phone to be delivered everywhere in Macau (minimum MOP $300 order to Taipa and MOP $500 to Coloane).
Opening hours: Daily, 12:00am–9:00pm
Lobby Lounge at Mandarin Oriental, Macau
What if you can’t decide on what to have for breakfast between western or oriental? Shall it be a Brazilian açai bowl with yogurt or Singaporean kaya toast with a soft boiled egg? Eggs Benedict with hollandaise sauce is always a good idea as well, especially when it is served with Alaskan crab. Not to mention, congee makes for a perfectly substantial breakfast that would give you a lot of energy for the oncoming workday. Head to the welcoming Lobby Lounge at Mandarin Oriental, Macau for the diverse menu and have something hot to warm up your tummy or açai bowl for a superfood supercharged breakfast. The breakfast is served from 9:00am to 12:00pm and features plenty of healthy options!
Opening hours: Daily, 9:00am–10:00pm
The Blissful Carrot
If you want a healthy breakfast in Macau, head to The Blissful Carrot which is all about promoting a healthy lifestyle. Being such a tiny place, these guys have made quite a big impact on the local community of conscious eaters. It is more like a takeaway place, so order one of the yummy items from their menu and enjoy it on the picturesque steps around the corner. Pre-order on Facebook to avoid waiting.
This vegetarian eatery in Taipa Village offers an extensive list of all-day breakfast dishes. Choose from acai bowls, gluten-free pancakes, smoothie bowls, and several eggy delights. You can trust The Blissful Carrot to deliver 100% healthy, yet tasty and definitely not boring food. Pair your choice with kombucha or a cold-pressed juice such as Mint To Be–a blend of spinach, apple, mint, and carrot.
Opening hours: 11:00am–8:00pm, Thursday–Tuesday
Jam & Butter
Jam & Butter might not have such a wide variety of breakfast options as some of the other places on this list. However, for people in One Oasis and even Coloane, it is probably the breakfast venue of choice.
If you are determined to start the day right, take a detour from the bakery section and aim for the salmon or spinach eggs Benedict. You can choose any sides from the list, like roasted cherry tomatoes and mixed greens too. One of the most attractive features of Jam & Butter is the fresh juice bar. Ask for your own juice mix, pick a classic OJ, or choose from their list of vitamin boosting cocktails for a morning boost. We especially love Green Power Mix with bitter melon, celery, cucumber, green apple, and green bell pepper. It is a vitamin bomb without the high sugar content!
Opening hours: Daily, 8:00am–8:00pm
A popular get-together cafe for breakfast and lunch in Taipa, Common Table is a spacious spot with large rustic wooden tables and friendly waiters. When it comes to breakfast, they mainly serve egg dishes with both regular and quail eggs. Among the most delicious dishes are homemade smoked salmon with avocado sauce, quail egg, and mesclun salad on walnut bread toast, baked in-house. Here you get your protein, omega-3 and amino acids, fiber, and other necessary elements all in one dish.
Caramel fig with homemade eggplant on toast could be an interesting choice if unusual combinations of sweet and savory are something you seek. Besides that, some vegetarian breakfast options are on the list too. Check Common Table’s grocery section before leaving to grab a healthy snack like jalapeño kale chips to help you get through the day.
On busy days it could get pretty full and noisy, so this would not be the right choice for those who appreciate breakfast in a quiet, zen environment. However, it would be a cool place for a Sunday late breakfast or brunch with friends especially considering the breakfast here is served until 5:00pm.
Opening hours: 8:00am–5:00pm, 6:30pm–11:00pm, Tuesday–Sunday; 8:00am–5:00pm, Monday
If you plan on having a day of exploring the city, especially if Macau’s historic center is on the list, there is a tiny takeaway cafe with a couple of seats that can offer its hospitality and super healthy breakfast bowls. To charge your batteries and get ready for a long day, grab a smoothie bowl packed with vitamins and minerals at Habitbox. Their signature bowl is made with açai pulp, a well-known Brazilian superfood berry. The list of its benefits includes high nutrition value and concentration of antioxidants, along with the improvement of cholesterol level. Besides, it’s just delicious!
Habitbox is located on the vibrant Rua dos Ervanarios with several cool coffee shops to stop by for a cup of latte to go. However, since it opens from 11:00am, Habitbox might not be for the early birds but perfect for the brunch crowd!
Opening hours: 11:00am–8:00pm, Monday–Saturday; 12:00pm–8:00pm, Sunday

At the moment, the only classic breakfast dish they are offering is tea egg and avocado toast, a must-eat for the avocado lovers. Served on homemade sourdough bread and sprinkled with furikake (Japanese seasoning), it is a light option filled with microelements. Being a restaurant dedicated to tea, teacups, and everything else about tea, there is naturally a large selection of cold and hot teas, coffee, and some refreshing fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable blends, kombucha, and more.
