Delicious

My husband and I saw reviews on TripAdvisor. I wanted Portuguese Sweet Bread. They were out, we wound up with a sponge cake with pudding and a napoleon. Both delicious and light. We had room for ice cream after! Nice staff as well!

P-town has been home to Portuguese fisherman for many years. This bakery has traditional pastry, bread and fried dough. It's worth a stop if you're in town for sure. Try the elephant ears.

We specifically wanted to stop into the bakery to try the sweet bread. We stopped in around 3 PM only to find that the bakery had run out because someone came in an ordered 4 Dozen of them.

The seating/waiting area is a little crowded but we were glad of a decent cup of coffee. The coffee was more like European strength (which made us happy) and the custard tarts were good.

Great variety of desserts and breads. Small seating area to enjoy a coffee and snack. Must try salted Carmel crème brulee cup.

Try the fried dough (without the sugar) and definitely buy the sweet bread. You will come back for more.

All day long you can watch and smell the fried dough they cook in the window. Then sprinkle with cinn sugar or powdered sugar. You cannot walk by and not go in to get one. The cakes and pastry’s looked so tempting. It is a true Portuguese bakery. Aways Chefnfly

Stopped in for fried dough. Great stuff, not very healthy but reminded me of childhood. Would recommend, had other items I didn't try but was packed with people outside of traditional hours.

Every time we visit Provincetown, I make sure to stop in here for a snack. This year my mother and I tried some sort of Portuguese fried dough, which was amazing - then came back an hour or so later (with my sister and husband) and tried a cream-filled donut, which was also amazing. I am also a huge fan... More
