Delicious eclairs! definitely worth a trip over here! We ended up coming here twice because it was that good. The service is great too. We just came for snacks, but the breakfast menu looked awesome.

The best choice for a good breakfast! Of course eclairs are the attraction and the speciality of the bar, and they are veeery good, but i really appreciate also the others products. Galao and torrada, is the best breakfast in Portugal and they do it soo good! Simple products with good quality. The location is fantastic, la Praca Guilherme Gomes... More

Stopped here on part of a food tour with Taste Porto and had the chocolate and the lemon eclair. Both were awesome but my preference was the lemon. Light and airy with awesome whipped cream inside.

A very nice space, with an amazing service and the menu makes you want to try everything. Although it is such a famous place the people don't behave in a pretentious way (as it happens to many "in" places). Will come back to try the brunch 👌

A small pastry & coffee shop specialized in absolutely delicious eclairs, with whipped cream and a large selection of glazings - chocolate and lemon are by far the best. If you a re not very hungry there is also a small version of eclair, but that would be a mistake...

Inflexible, they can not change anything on menu, but they can change the products without telling you and do not offer other options. Waiters are rude.

Wow! I just can't believe this place has so many good reviews. It must be people who never had a good eclair in their life. We also had some kind of bread-sandwich with meat and tomato sauce. We just had a bite and left it!

I tried several times their matosinhos outlet and it just does not make sense. Waiters are extremely slow, nor interested.... it is a nice cafe and food is (just) ok, but do not go there unless you schedule half day for your breakfast. You also need to be quite flexible in what you get compared to your order.

We visited this place because we had heard that the eclairs were the best ones in Portugal. Either I am not a fan of eclairs (I had never tasted one before) or this place is highly overrated. It was a Sunday afternoon and the day was hot. Inside there were plenty of seating available but we chose to seat outside... More
