Great pastry shop - beware almond croissants

This was nearby our apartment and the ticket system applies so watch out. The almond croissants were such a disappointment - if you are a foodie don't expect the lightness of croissant pastry - they were badly cooked and stodgy and the almond paste was bland and very unimpressive. The cod balls... read more

The cod balls were fantastic thought !

Fabulous cakes and coffee and all the other lovely food on show looked good too. It was very busy but the ticket system works well and the staff are all so lovely and friendly. Try... More

Always go to Beira Mar for several years now, they have the best pastry and sandwiches. As it gets always crowded, we always take it away. Just ask for an almond croissant, it's really delicious!

It is probably the best "pastel de Belém" that I've ever eaten! Also de Cod balls or "bolinho de bacallhau" are wonderful! Because I don't watch my weight during the holidays, I went there almost everyday of my stay in Quarteira to eat a pastel.

Great little self service type of bakery/cake/sandwich shop. We stubbled on this and fancied a quick bite to eat, with a great food and drink choice it was hard to resist, would visit again if in the area sandwiches are gorgeous!

Was recommended here by Portuguese friends and they were not wrong, great sandwiches and fabulous coffee. Lovely place to watch the world go. It gets very busy and there is a ticket system but staff are friendly and helpful and let me practise my Portuguese.

everything in this shop looks absolutely delicious, you have to take a ticket as it is extremely popular. So far tried the sandwiches, the savoury plate pie and quite a few of the cakes. Will be back tomorrow early to try and get the hot chocolate, it is usually sold out by the time we get there!

loved the baguettes! we went twice as we enjoyed it so much but I don't recommend the chips package as they were like macdonalds fries. The staff were very helpful. Seemed to be a lot of locals eating there which si usually a good sign of quality..
