We had the best cold sandwiches here, very busy and loud, really local. Not a lot of room to turn around, though. You order your food at a deli counter and he writes it on a teeny piece of paper and you watch him make it.

I won't be able to eat fried dough anywhere else after this. Light, fluffy, tasty, fresh. Also had a linguiça croissant that was excellent. Try the Portuguese fruit sodas from Quėbec while you are there.

If you're interested in baked goods, you must come here, for small amounts. Heavy foods, and the grease will go through the bag, so it is a nice treat, not a daily meal.

The bakery is all about its Portuguese dough fritters, which resembles a fluffier version of a doughnut. It is even coated in sugar. The other pastries, which are often overlooked in favor of the fritter, are pretty good too. Indoor seating is available.
