We stopped in here for our "elevenses," you know, that hungry feeling you get after b'fast and before lunch. I chose a sfogliatella, hubby chose something else, both accompanied by a latte. His was delicious. Mine was remarkable, a perfect combination of flaky, not-too-rich pastry,...infused with a touch of orange-scented pastry cream. Worth a trip to P'town just to have another!!More

Get the Malasadas. Right out of the frier. Perfectly cooked and dipped in sugar. Absolutely delicious. We went back for more. We ate one and immediately returned and ordered more.

In the off-season, one doesn’t have to wait long (or at all) for the delicious fried dough. I had it for breakfast two days, and it was delish. Perfectly fried, and not greasy at all. (Seriously, the bag had no grease spots at all!) The...texture was tender, with a little crunch from the sugar. A real treat.More

Amazing! I went here with my family a few years ago. I absolutely LOVED it! The baked good were so good, I think I gained quite a bit of weight. Whenever I'm in the area I will always stop by. It would be a miss...if you didn't try it!More

Gem of Ptown - love their baked goods. Best to get there early as it is popular and will sell out of certain items. The portugese donuts (bolas) are surprisingly light for a donut filled with cream (and delicious, of course!). My daughter loves the...cinnamon rolls.More

The baked goods are so delicious you'll end up weighing more than you came in! The food is great and a must-stop in P-town.

Had a Malasada and it was delicious! A must have if stopping here. Light and airy with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. I could have went back for another!

After reading reviews from others in here and was closed last time when we visited last year we were looking forward to try. However it was not what we expected. We got the Portuguese egg tarts which is the signiture dessert and was disappointed as...the flavor is so different from what we had from Portugal. Also the size is tiny for that price. The signiture Portuguese egg tart from Portugal is crispy on the outside and the creamy egg in the middle is much thicker and fluffy and it's unforgettable tasty. The 3 stars is for the fried dough, malasada which is good as it was crispy outside and chewy Inside which we recommend.More

What a find!. Had to stand in line for a short while at this popular bakery. We tried ham & cheese croissants, chocolate croissant, apple turnover and lobster claw with cream filling. All were fresh and excellent and reasonably priced.

This is a great variation of the beaten Ice cream parlour. Great unique desserts, try the PENHASCO, and great espresso.

I visited this lovely bakery in Easter of 2020. I was impressed with the baked goods. If I had more funds I would have bought moew pastry. The prices were definitely in the cheap eats category. Overall, I remember that the food was lighter than...I talian pastry. I have always loved Portuguese sweet bread which I hadn't ordered here. Otherwise I am in no way an expert on Portuguese goods. The "barista" was helpful and went beyond expectations. Unfortunately I had lost track of my friends and my cell was dead. They let me charge my phone. I did find my friends. It seems to be common for restraunters to walk me to my car. The young woman working here did make sure I was safe and finally with my runaway friends.More

Make sure to stop by for a pasteis de nata/custard tart or their famous malasada/Portuguese fried dough - totally worth it!

This is a PTown staple that you MUST run don’t walk to grab breakfast at. It’s unpretentious, authentic, affordable and delicious. Grab a malasadas to cure your appropriate hangover, which is fried dough coated in granulated sugar. The other pastries are also to die for!...Highly recommend.More

Ignore the hype about the Portuguese Bakery. THE FOOD IS TRULY MEDIOCRE. The pastries are uninspired. We tried several, including a cinnamon stick and a raspberry turnover, and both were dry, doughy and bland. Pastry has to be pretty awful for us to throw it...away, and we tossed both after a single bite. Service was even worse than the food. The counter help just doesn't care. Sunday morning and they didn't have their core offering (french toast). Don't get caught up in the hype - there are a lot of places just a few paces away that have better food and better service.More

I believe there was a dog in there when I was there but it is a very tiny bakery and there is a spot to tie a dog up outside if you're going in to grab something quick.

The history of Provincetown’s Portuguese Bakery is nearly as shrouded in mystery as the recipes for its famous pastries. While everyone agrees it has been around “forever,” no one seems quite certain of a date. One of the... More
