Pastelaria-Padaria São Roque

57 Rua Dom Pedro V
Lisbon , Portugal
351-21-322-4356

The tiles of the Pastelaria-Padaria Sao Roque claim it is the "Cathedral of Bread", but the bakery also serves up delicious sweets and savories as well. Located on the northern edge of the Bairro Alto, the pastelaria is filled with an ornate dome ceiling, bronze-colored marble columns, curved counters, and art deco azulejos with intricate designs, bright colors, and nature scenes. Locals come here to enjoy treats such as pasteis de nata (custard tarts), meringues, coconut-dusted pao de deus (God's bread), and codfish cakes. There is ample seating indoors but several outdoor tables allow for people-watching during nice weather.
