Confeitaria Nacional

It’s the oldest pastry shop in town, with a charming interior

Mon – Thu, 8h – 20h; Fri – Sat, 8h – 21h; Sun, 9h – 21h

If you have a sweet tooth and the sight of dozens of miniature cakes, tarts, and unnameable puffed perfections makes your hands start shaking, you’ll need to gather yourself as you breeze through the entrance to this pastry-maker’s palace. With the store dating back to 1829, these guys know what they’re doing, and the setting alone with its old-world opulence is enough to make even the coolest cucumber go gaga. Grab a pastry to go (para levar) or head to their seating area in the foyer or at the top of the grand spiral staircase, and stay a while. Your time spent at a table might be by design, but don’t expect to get your extremely reasonable bill quickly, as there will almost certainly be lots of locals and tourists alike who have been waiting even longer, pumped full of coffee and bouncing off the walls after their sugar fix.
