Can't fight temptation!

We always stop here for fried dough on our way home. It is the greasiest deliciousness you'll ever know. I hear their regular bread is also great but honestly, the only thing I've ever had is the fried dough. I promise to try something else next time!

Good place to stop for a snack or take home some fancy pastries. Malassadas are a afavorite of the tour bus crowd and fried freshly all day long. They also offer a nice secetion of dessert pastries.

If you are looking for what passes as a bakery now-a-days this is not the place for you. This place makes authentic home made Portuguese pastries...it's all made right there...not purchased from some big commercial bakery then placed in their shop. If you don't want sweet stuff then try a breakfast sandwich (on Portuguese sweet rolls) or maybe some fried... More

Been there a lot, and while the items are pretty good, the older gent (owner) is grumpy and seems to not care if you patronize his business or not. The sign says they're open until 5pm, but at 4:45 PM, we watched him flip his "open" sign to "closed". Whattt ? Even the good items don't make up for his... More

Their fried dough is to die from. (Wouldn't recommend eating it every day, because you might.) This bakery cum coffee shop on Commercial Street in Provincetown has been around forever. We go there several times a year. No frills. Long lines. You can eat in or take out. Most people take out. Great pastries. If you haven't been there, try... More

I haven't had malasadas or any other dessert in years. Didn't even know this place existed. Walked in and smiled big. They had just gotten the malasadas started. I gladly waited. They were just as good as when I was younger. Also bought other goodies and brought them home.

Though the place has limited seating, it was worth the wait. The breakfast sandwiches on a Portuguese roll were great, but definitely try the Malasadas (Deep fried dough, covered in sugar and cinnamon)!! Also, they have a great espresso machine, so either an espresso or espresso drink is recommended over the coffee.

One of the best bakeries on this side of heaven. The fried dough will have you in euphoria. I think I was having a love affair with my dessert. Lol I also tried the cream cake, sort of like a Boston Cream Pie, and let's just say I was licking the plate. Lol Yeah, I love a great dessert.
