This bakery is in a small space but produces a great variety of Portuguese breads and pastries. Everything I tried was awesome. My biggest regret is that I wasn’t here every day of my visit!

My friend Tiago (how could he not be Portuguese?!) insisted I try a savory pastry filled with shrimp, which was a good snack. With my sweet tooth, however, I was happy to move on to the sweet treats. I really enjoyed a small tart filled with candied spaghetti squash.

Unfortunately, after just a few bites and an espresso, we had to take off. Tiago had an unexpected emotional outburst in response to the port-soaked croissant. IT WAS JUST TOO DELICIOUS! Face all red, he RAGED about how it’s IMPOSSIBLE to get croissant like this in the USA. I could see he wanted to order another one, but I was afraid of what might happen if he did.
