“The world needs Nata”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Really glad to find this little place in Cascais last summer. The pasteis de nata here are lovely and served nice and freshly cooked. Definitely compares favourably with the more famous Pasteis de Belem. The service in this branch was good and mostly very friendly and helpful.

It was due to finding this place that we came to Cascais' beaches rather than others in the area for quite a few days to have a nata and coffee.

“A little Cascais Gem!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Though not strictly a restauarant - it's really a coffe shop/tea room/cafe, this gem was a REAL discovery, during a rather unfortunate visit to Cascais in June this year. The weather was most unseasonal, and we spent much of the time walking along the coast road, and in and around the town instead of lounging by the hotel pool or on the town beach.

No matter, we chanced upon this oasis, which we visited on at least five of the seven days we were in Cascais.

The coffee was to die for, and the Pastel de Nata - well talk about melt in the mouth!

The cafe had only been open about a month, and the young ladies serving in the shop were so lovely and made us so welcome, even though our skills in the Portuguese patois are minimal!

If you go to anywhere in the area, it's worth making your way into the town, just to sit outside (weather permitting) and chill for a while - Oh, AND enjoy the coffee and pastel!

“The best Pastels de Nata ever”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a tiny coffee shop and may appear not a place for tourists I would recommend you venture in. You order from the counter, the cold drinks are nothing like you will have tasted before - be brave , they are very refreshing and delicious, if you are not sure just choose by colour, many contain mint.
The expresso is tasty with a very good creme but the Pastels de Nata are in a league of their own. Freshly baked on the premises, served warm (they sell too fast to go cool), the pastry is delicious and the filling is heavenly, add your own cinnamon and icing sugar, although it is not needed. Excellent value, there is a take out service to bring some home , the staff are lovely.

As you can see this is the first English review , there should be many more,
