  • When you first get to Pastéis de Belém, you will see a long line-up outside. This is the line-up for take-out only. If you plan on eating inside, then you don’t have to wait in line. You just go inside and they have a huge indoor seating space. So unless you have a big group, you won’t really need to make a reservation. The service is very fast once you are seated inside as well.

Famous for: their pastel de nata (Portuguese eggtarts). They are known as the original pastel de nata bakery – they have been around since 1837. If you are in Lisbon, this is one of the must-try items (It’s like in Paris, you must try the macarons at Pierre Herme or Laduree. In Lisbon, you must try the pastel de natas at Pastéis de Belém). When you eat these fresh right after you purchase them at Pastéis de Belém, they taste so good that I had to eat 2 in a row in one setting!

  • Pastel de nata prices (as at 2015): 1.05 euro for one pastel de nata; 6.2 euros for a box of 6; 55 euros for a box of 52

Recommended for: those want to try the original pastel de natas; dessert lovers (although I didn’t think the pastel de natas were overly-sweet, so even if you are not usually a desert person, you might still like this!)
