Their location is directly across the street from the main entrance to the Bolhao market. They have a good assortment of pastries and cakes on display. We found the quality good but prices a little higher than other nearby pastry shops.

Great selection of pastries and good coffee. Great place for breakfast or a snack. Crowded and fast moving. Friendly staff. 5 minute walk from the San Bento train station.

This is a great place to sit, drink coffee and watch the locals. The pastries are sublime and the coffees inexpensive. Sit in her for an hour or so and see what gossip you can pick up (if you speak Portuguese!).

Offers excellent pastries and coffee to locals and visitors at an excellent value. A far better option than the touristy Majestic Café. Conveniently located across from the Bolhao market at R. Formosa 339.
