If you like fried dough, the malasadas are wonderful, especially when they're fresh out of the fryer. And since they fry them in a space visible through the front window, you can tell when they're freshly made, and when they might have been sitting around a bit. Everything else we tried here was disappointing - looked good, but was mostly... More

My family always eats here when we come to Provincetown. We enjoy breakfast, lunch and desserts here. The food is consistently delicious and not overpriced. My son loves the chicken finger plate, Portuguese soda and the chocolate chip cookies. My Portuguese wife loves everything. I am a big fan of the Bifana plate. We recently tried the non-flour chocolate cake.... More

If you're not stopping in for a malasada from this place while you're visiting Provincetown, you're ruining your life!!! I'll be dreaming about them until we're in town again next year. Do yourself a favor and check them out.

I enjoyed eating what the locals eat. Had like 6 different kinds of pastry and all tasted great. You can also see when they are frying the Malasadas, everything is fresh!They close until late, so it gives you the opportunity to repeat on your way back. A must go place in P-town.

I went into the Provincetown Portuguese Bakery with high hopes. The reviews here were mouth-watering. While pleasant, I'd say overall, my experience was only average. I tried the malasadas, and as described, the pastry was greasy enough to seep through the paper bag. But was it life-changing? To-die-for? Hardly. It was sweet. It was doughy. It was overpriced. Will try... More

You cannot come to P-Town and not get in line with everyone else to wait for the fried dough as it comes out hot...what a treat. I also got the cream filled donut...everything here is the reason I skip dessert at The Red Inn and even the Mews...go and try everything. I was staying at a B&B so I have... More

When visiting P town I always make it a point to stop into the bakery to get my daily Elephant ear! They are truly the best I have ever had and are always nice and fresh! The breakfast here is also very good with multiple choices of pastries and egg sandwiches. The prices are also very fair.

We love the Portuguese Bakery. During our recent trip we sat inside in the small dining area and had breakfast. As you walk in expect summer crowds, but the line moves quickly and food arrives hot and fast. You order, pay and when done they call your number - very casual. The price is just right as well. Love the... More

Love their dough boys! You HAVE to stop and get one while walking Commercial Street shopping! Also, have great breakfast and lunch. I haven't had dinner there but sure it's good. Many pastries to choose from also. Small but offers indoor eating.
