The eclairs are the best I have had. Very light filled with a light cream and topped with a variety of toppings. My favourite was the lemon seconded by the apple cinnamon.

Somebody should tell the manager that one waiter for 20 tables is a recipe for disaster. Coffee and breakfast were not bad but not above average.

The best eclairs in the country. These are Porto style and as so they're a bit rough in it's shape. But once you bite them, they reveal all of it sweetness and by Jove they are good. From the classic chocolate toppings to fruit jams, their filling is not egg custard but whipped cream, not too sweet or acid. Did... More

A good place to take an afternoon snack in Oporto Downtown. Very good and tasteful “eclairs” and tea. The hot chocolate is literally melted chocolate, for chocolate lovers.

Very different from American eclairs, no custard. Instead whipped cream in the center which I felt made it lighter, but I doubt healthier. But who cares, in on vacation. I was introduced to this establishment on a Pastry Tour, and I had to return. Instead of the traditional eclair, whipped cream filling with milk chocolate on top, I opted for... More

Delicious eclairs and nice milkshakes. The location is also nice, so it's perfect for a break in the afternoon. Unfortunately my waist was unfriendly and there's no free Wi-Fi. But I noticed that the other waiter was very polite to his guests, so maybe mine just had a bad day

Beautifully constructed and creamy eclairs: chocolate, dark chocolate, black and white and - my personal favorite - lemon. There are several locations in Porto - even one near Casa de Musica metro stop. Must try...

If you're looking for a coffee & and a sweet, this is the place to go. I'm not a lover of eclairs, so I can't compare to others, but I am not a fan of custard and here they stuffed the eclair with Chantilly Cream which I must preferred. We had good service and it was just what we were... More

We went there in a sunny but cold (for a portuguese winter) Saturday. And, I thought we ordered more than our bodies could ate. The space is very up dated for a portuguese candies and coffee shop but the attendance team is very kind and help us to order. A tip: try to eat with your stomach not with your... More

I have been here a few times already. The pastries are just wonderful. They also have outdoor seating. The only downsides: staff not the friendliest; they tend to run out of some of the baked goods mid day.
