The cakes are not that interesting but you still have to try them and portwine when you visit Lissabon. You can get these cakes all over Lissabon but I believe this one is the most famous place.

We visited Belen to see the monastery and the Belem tower and it seemed rude not to visit the Egg custard shop Miss the queues and go for a sit down at the rear great coffee and even greater custard tarts Humour the male assistants and you can even make them smile - not sure I could go all day...

The custard tarts are legendary. We chose to eat them in their restaurant. Although there was a queue it moved fast and I would say was a better way of enjoying them - warm with coffee. Quick service, slower to bring the bill.

We went after trying many of the other nata offerings in Lisbon. The original won it for us! Go early (before 10am) - we didn't queue but immediately after us about 10 groups had suddenly appeared and formed a long line. (avoid the weird sausage roll - we were desperate and starving but didn't finish it!)

We visited Lisbon out of high season and went to de Belem in the evening so there was no crowd and we could have seen all the beautiful tiles on the old walls. Pastry is great and worth every bite. It is not the cheapest place in Lisbon but must do anyways.

You can buy the pastries elsewhere but nothing can surpass Pasteis de Belem. Fresh and hot! Sometimes a long line but worth the wait.

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood Profile
Belem
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
