The Place for Pasteis de Nata

At the historic Belem bakery they claim to make 20,000 pasties de nata every day.  The length of the queue snaking down the street attests to the power of this top drawer for tourists but who wants to stand waiting for hours on a hot day. Especially when you can find excellent pasteis and coffee two hundred metres’ away.

Just across the road from the Monastery of Jeronimos is a replica of a yellow Lisbon tram and a shady outdoor cafe. The pasta I ate was warm, the pastry perfectly flaky and the filling a wondrous wobbly sweet yolkiness.
