You gotta go! Custard is a light crispy crust. I could live on these. Folks are so pleasant, and the coffee is great. Go in, sit down, have a couple. Then take more back to your hotel....you know you’ll want more in a couple hours.

For anyone with craving for pastel de nata (which started taking London by storm already 30 years ago), this place is an absolute treat, and does not fall beyond the iconic patisserie behind San Jeronimo Monastery in Lisbon where it all started. It also happens...More
