Better than pasties de nata. Bit of a drive but good. More crusty and a longer line. Best the system by going for table service and ordering takeout.

A line outside of tourist, but it goes fast. Prices are average when you compare it to the quality and taste. Staff is rude!

The most important thing is that the pastries are very tasty. The crowds are kind of insane... driven by massive hype and tour book promotions, but they do know how to move orders and people along so while it’s not quick service, it’s not quite...More

No matter how you call it, whether it’s Belem cake, Les pasteis de nata or simply Portuguese egg tart. To me, it’s simply the best. It’s our third trip to Lisbon and we still enjoyed it so much. It’s getting more and more popular but...More
