Impressive selection of cakes, tarts and pastries. We ordered about 4 different varieties to take away and ended up eating them all by the time we got to the tube station. They were all sublime. If you only try one nata in Porto, make it this one. You will not regret it.

great looking pastries, breads, sweets and cookies. Meals available in dining area towards the back.
Interior mirrors on walls with
Jugend stile inlays. toilets incl one for wheelchair access at the back of the dining room area.
you order and receive a card with a barcode, which you present at the entrance on the way out to pay your bill.
We had a light lunch at this place. 1 soup, a tuna salad and 2 fresh orange juice, 8.95 euro.
The meals are quite big and this was more than enough for two. You can also ask for half serves for certain meal options.
Presentation wise not very attractive but all tasted ok.
Nothing spectacular but good value for the price.
I did notice some other plates which where presented very nicely so maybe they are just not that good in presenting a salad well.
loved the atmosphere with visitors being a cross section of Portugese
and tourist off all ages.

This was the first place we visited in Porto and it was definitely one of the best. It's a very busy bakery/café and they have loads of tasty treats on offer. There's no menu as such so it's a bit tricky to order for a non-Portuguese speaker but we managed to get some drinks and three natas. Definitely go for the natas when you visit as they were amazing. Warm and delicious, they were the first natas we had tried and definitely the best. All very reasonable too - the natas were 75 cents. When you order you get given a barcode to take up to the till by the door to pay.

Go and try the natas for sure!
