Great place with a lot of history. Don’t stand in, just take a seat and be served. The service took a while but was nice. I would advice eating 2 Pasteis de Nata per person ;) Make sure to walk all the way to the outside and covered seating. Really nice. If you have a 2 year old like us then you get priority. This is true in all of Portugal, and is enforced by law if you are pregnant of have a 2 year old or younger and don’t have a stroller.
Excellent customer service. One of my regular visits for breakfast and lunch - The Custard Tart has a great selection of everything you could need. Friendly warm staff and great food. Certainly worth visiting and trying. The baguettes are the best I have tasted by far and with great variety to choose from. The coffees tastes better than most chain brands and the staff are friendlier too. Great food, nice staff, free working WiFi! I go in there most days on school holidays for an 80p cuppa and many a sausage roll and the staff in there are brilliant and polite you guys make the best cuppas keep it up. Great Little place with friendly staff in quirky building generous portions and prices are fantastic no complaints from wallet or tummy!!
Went in the afternoon and the queue for takeaway was long, but I went inside to sit at one of their many, many tables. There was a small queue to be seated but it moved fast. Ordered some small pastries including a sausage roll, which were all good, but of course the stars were the 2 custard tarts! Thin, very crispy, slightly burnt shell with a nice consistency of the filling. Got a six pack to take away, having them for breakfast for the next 3 days. They do get increasingly soggy but 3 days later they still tasted wonderful with some cinnamon and icing sugar. Believe the hype! Delicious.
Go. You’re going to wait in line, but it’s worth it. You wait to get a table and then order at the table. I saw some people taking it to go, and that may be faster. But this treat isn’t something you rush. Pastéis de Nata are to be savored. I ordered a plate for the table, and I easily devoured two with my coffee. The sweet custard and crispy crust makes each little treat an experience. I don’t want to say anymore so you all can be pleasantly surprised. Once you finish, spend some time in walking around the area. Very cool location, away from the main tourist center.
A historic pastry shop that wasn't too crowded with quick and efficient service. We enjoyed our egg custards and berliner (a custard filled doughnut) here during our stay in Lisbon. While the line initially seemed long, we were seated quickly. Our waiter who had an incredible memory brought us our order efficiently. Beautiful tiled walls. The restaurant is much bigger than it appears on the street. Sandwiches were average at best but visitors mostly come for the extraordinary pastries.
