Eat all the Pasteis de Nata at the Manteigaria


Portugal is the birthplace of one of the best sweet treats you could ever hope to sink your teeth into the small yet mighty Pastel de Nata (Portuguese tart). Impossibly crisp and flakey puff pastry tarts filled with the creamiest of egg custard and dusted with cinnamon, they’re heavenly and utterly addictive.


One of the greatest things about being in the home of this delicious treat is that it's not just socially acceptable to devour sugary pastries for breakfast, it's actually expected. No place will help you get your pastry on better than the Manteigaria.


We’re not ashamed to admit we visited daily for our Portuguese tart hit (hey, we did say they were addictive!), grabbing at least four for breakfast before hitting the road to explore more of Porto. Obviously, we needed the mix of carbs and sugars to see as much of Porto as we could, right?!


Jokes aside, do as the locals do and grab a coffee, pick your pastry, and settle into the seating area to enjoy.
