Although primarily known for its pastries, they do serve quick bites and meals. Always friendly and many tables throughout the restaurant. Centrally located so that you can stop in and then get the bus or tram across the street.

Used to be a hallmark of pastry in Algés. The problem is that the service is very poor and old fashioned in the worst possible sense.

We fell upon this place after taking the tram to the end of the line to Alges. Nice cakes on display, we didn't try many but the two we did were lovely. Coffee is much cheaper than in town. Nice quiet and cool as the air con was on full blast (nice in the heat). Stop by if you go... More

Even to drink just a simple coffee, Nortenha is not recommended. The pastry may look tasty but it's only bland. Their cakes to order are tasteless and too expensive. The pre payment system is confusing. The staff is always unhappy and won't provide you a smile, let alone a good service. There are a lot of great places in Algés... More

I miss Confeitaria Nortenha, I have been going to this coffee shop since I was a child. Now as a adult I keep going back every time I visit Portugal. So happy to be able to go this year for Christmas, that where I'll get my Bolo Rei. Thank you Nortenha for your great service and great pastry!

A coffee shop with own production of pastry and bread. Taste the wonderful sandwiches in the morning with warm bread that came out of the hoven just a minute ago. The cakes are delicious.

For a quick lunch or breakfast or snack, this is a good spot if you are around. Reasonable food, for reasonable prices, wide choice.
