It is sort of a deli/bakery with few tables and lots of customers. The variety and quality of the baked goods were outstanding. We went there for lunch. I had the breakfast sandwich. The owner/ chef was personable and very proud of his food. He has every right to be.

Went here yesterday morning with my family for a snack and to grab sandwiches to bring to the beach because of all the great reviews. Maybe it was an off day for the shop but my kids were not happy with the blueberry muffin and cinnamon roll they got for a snack. Both kids said they were dry like they... More

Malassadas! Malassadas! Malassadas! Incredible fried sweet dough. An absolute MUST when in P-town. Do not be discouraged by long lines and wonder "what if I waited?' The line moves quick and you get to pick out OTHER wonderful sweet treats. Really good bakery overall. Great bread and wonderful service. Enjoy.

We walked past their shop when coming out of the alley way from the public restroom at the back of their shop, and saw this sign there advertising fried dough. So we gave it a try and it tasted great to everyone. Too bad that we already ate something for lunch before finding them, and we could not buy more.... More

Everyone we talked to who had ever been to Provincetown said, "You have to go to the Portuguese Bakery" Well the time came, and while we were waiting for our boarding time to go Whale Watching, we walked through a short passageway to Main street and came to the bakery. We got a coffee, a flat sweet bread and a... More

Everything Portuguese here at the Bakery, which has made it an institution in the town. Sweet rolls, pastries, bread and those special desserts that blend flour with sugar a la Portugal are available in a shop that is always crowded on Commercial Street. Sandwiches and soft drinks added to these make a good combination for a day at the beach... More

Walked by and saw them making "donuts" or fried dough in the window, so we stopped to try them! I am so glad we did...they were fabulous! Highly recommend trying all of their items. Several others in my group tried things and said they were great!

I can only speak for the sweet fried dough - delicious. Quite unhealthy, I'm sure, but what a treat! I had this to go instead of ice cream. The place was hopping.
