Antiga Confeitaria de Belém

Top choice pastries

in Belém

Since 1837 this patisserie has been transporting locals to sugar-coated nirvana with heavenly pastéis de Belém. The crisp pastry nests are filled with custard cream, baked at 200°C for that perfect golden crust, then lightly dusted with cinnamon. Admire azulejos in the vaulted rooms or devour a still-warm tart at the counter and try to guess the secret ingredient.

Go early on a midweek day to avoid nasty lines.
