Well worth a visit, but not if you are on a diet! In this spotless pastelaria the counter is just groaning with a wide selection of the most delicious looking cakes, which are constantly replenished by the ladies who bake them in the back room. We tried the "pao de rala", which consisted of ground almonds and orange, and "pasteles de nata", both specialities and as fresh as they come. It seems to be popular with the locals who clearly know good cakes. They were delicious and very good value!

I visited this “Pastelaria” twice because I was so impressed. Every little cake looks freshly baked with great care. I tried a selection of 4 different cakes, all egg-based, with almonds, honey and nuts. I drank freshly squeezed orange juice and a cappuccino. It is a lovely place, although very small and it looks spotlessly clean and. Prices are reasonable. A must in Evora.

Nice atmosphere, good cakes, excellent, strong coffee. One must try regional specialties, especially toucinho da abadessa, a kind of almond fruitcake.
