We took Tram 15 into Belem around 10:30am. The pastry shop is on the RHS, between stop Belem and the stop Monasteries de Jeronimos. As we trundled past the shop, we noticed that there was no queue, so when we hopped off the tram, we immediately headed back to the shop.
It was very empty. Heaps and heaps of spare tables. We loitered around looking at the place for about 20 minutes. By then the tour groups/ people from the tram had arrived and the tables were quickly filled. We queued to buy our tarts to eat at the counter - the line is not slow, but it doesn't move all that fast either. We generally have coffee/snacks at the counter so that we can watch the staff prepping the orders/ people watch.
We tried the egg tarts in a few places in Lisbon, and this has to be the nicest. However, it was different from the portugese egg tarts we've grown up eating in Malaysia/Singapore/Australia as the pastry used in Lisbon is more akin to phyllo than puff pastry. That said, I think the chinese egg tarts you get at yum cha places beats portugese egg tarts!
