Lydia's bakery was strange but the baked goods were delicious. The staff had a hard time understanding my Portuguese, and were not very friendly. But the bread and pastries were good.

When we walked into Lydia's Bakery it was like walking into a local bakery and eatery in Portugal. The room was nearly full with a European coffee house crowd sipping coffee, eating wonderful pastries, chatting, laughing and watching Portoguese television.
