They have tons of yummy, sweet goodies make your eyes popped out when you enter the building. I was drooling when I saw displays of all the sweets that I have never seen before. It gave me a wow factor that I could not leave the place without buying 18 different types of small sweet cookies, biscuits etc. I wanted... More

Wonderful pastelaria in the hearth of Lisbon. The baroque interior is a perfect match for the wide selection of super sweet pastries. Very crowded, so be prepared to take away or eat at one of the standing counters.

Came on this bakery while wandering the streets of Lisbon. They have a wide variety of pastries. Although a little cramped, enjoy a pastry and espresso at one of the standing counters. Very enjoyable experience.

Great pastry with some of the best cakes that I ate, but get ready because it's very crowded. It's right in the center next to the Rua Augusta.

Wonderful, traditional bakery with central location. Nata's are the best on the menu. You have option to dine in, take away or just a standing area for a quick break of coffee and pastries. Best local bakery in Lisbon.

This may not be the best pastry shop in world or even Portugal, but it is a great place to stop for a taste of Portugese coffee and pastries. The interior is attractive and cozy, the coffee is excellent, the selection of desserts is extensive and they were delicious. The place gets very busy so some of the staff may... More

CNN said that this is one of the best pastries in Europe. The famous "king-cake" that all the portuguese people eat in xmas/new year´s eve, entered in Portugal in the XVIII century thru this pastry, and it´s regarded still one of the best places to eat "king-cake", but this cake it´s only avaiable in December and January. On those months,... More

This place is really well- known, you ll find it in every guide, probably cause it's super old.. The atmosphere is quite cute, the espresso is superb ( but I think that's a Portuguese thing) . The pastries are not bad, however I've tried better in Lisbon.

Yes, this is a must on any trip to Lisbon but the great pastries and offerings are sadly let down by slow, unorganized service and employees with attitude. The coffees are definitely not the best and you if you don't ask for the quiche or cheese pastry to be warmed it comes cold to the table. I saw the staff... More
