All good things must come to an end. After so many wonderful years (actually decades) of eating treats here we no longer find it that great. We certainly tried. The Napolean was just average tasting and somewhat greasy, possibly a 'day old'. The cinnamon stick was lacking and just average. The strawberry croissant was good. The Bolas donut was good.... More

This wonderful little gem of a bakery serves the BEST breakfast sandwiches in town! They are delicious -- and even better on their freshly baked and delightful Portuguese rolls. Perfect to grab on your way to a hiking or kayaking excursion early in the morning!

If you do nothing else in P-Town, do these. There are also other pastries, and even a linguica kind of croissant thing. All GREAT!

Provincetown is not known for bakeries. I always stop by this bakery whenever in town. Bakeries seem to come and go, but this one has been there forever. It doesn't sell the delicate pastries of a french boulangerie, but it offers genuine hearty Portuguese delicacies, including cookies. They also sell the delicious "sweet bread." When we have been there, it... More

Stopped by last weekend on a trip to PTown. Its small, bright and you will want to buy everything you see! Between my guests and myself we bought 4 pastries and a piece of the fried dough which it is renowned for. Everything was great. The prices were very reasonable as well. Its a must stop by when in town!

Stop and get fried dough and eat it while it is fresh. It is delicious. A little greasy, but so good. We tried the eclair and cheese danish. Both were good, but the fried dough is definitely the way to go.

After we walked around for a bit looking for a breakfast with eggs and gone fries, we were told by many to stop in the Portuguese Bakery for breakfast. It was packed, built we were able to get a table quickly. It was also the height of their morning rush and Labor Day weekend. The line for pastries moves relatively... More

Stopped in for late night coffee, and to my pleasant surprise, found incredibly, delicious pastries. Left with a bagful of treats. Don't worry, it's alright if most of it doesn't make it back to the hotel room...just enjoy!

Part of the Commercial Street walking experience could include a bakery stop ... even at 9pm! That's about the time we were there and the place was hopping! Our choices were yummy: pound cake, cannoli, eclair, and a donut ... nothing extra special to write home about, but good. You can also order light meals and dine in. While it... More

Went to P town for the first time and a friend said we must stop here. The Malassadas (fried dough) and meringue were amazing. All of their pastries looked delicious. The place is small inside so expect a long line since it's quite popular.
