Reviewed September 8, 2017

A well-known spot, with both local customers and tourists. Usually crowded. They have both traditional baking and pastry products from the Alentejo as well as modern products, along with a small shop selling fruit, cheese, etc. Very good quality and great prices.

We love this place the cakes are amazing, so fresh and beautiful and very reasonably priced we've tried about ten varieties and 4 days! They also have Savory pastries like Duck pies and Chicken Pies, puff pastries, sandwiches and soups. The service is also very good with very friendly and helpful staff and you don't have to wait long either, plus the actual Cafe Ambiance is very nice.

This is a mixture of a baker's and a grocery store, and of course it gets packed at certain times of the day, but that's no reason to avoid it in any way!
If you go for the sweets and cakes, please control yourself, of you won't resist a single one! I was allowed to sample a couple before choosing mine and took both!
Payment must be made upfront but they tend to be flexible with tourists.
They run the risk of having me there every day, so delicious are the cakes...

We were taken to the bakery by the manager from the Supermercado Frutaria just next door. His wife worked at the bakery, and it is amazing. The most spectacular array of desserts, scones, custard tarts that we saw in our 2 weeks in Portugal. A bustling, and friendly place with reasonable prices. Hard to imagine being disappointed going to this place, certainly the equal of anything we saw in Lisbon or Porto.
