We were attended by Priscila, a lovely Brazilian girl who treated us so well, and we did eat good home-made-like food for a cheap price with coffee and a dessert and a soup, the place is great, and nothing to complaint about. Ten over ten.

Classic, old school place with a lot of character. I tried two items - pastel de nata and jesuita da maca. Both delicious. I preferred their pastel da nata over Manteigaria's because it's much less sweet.

Very unassuming place and this is possibly the best thing about it. Their beef pregos are great with the bread fresh out of their bakery. Super spot for a quick lunch!
