    Pastéis de Belém is one of the best Lisbon coffee shop with the amazing Pastéis de Belém. Need to take a ticket to get your pastries.

    Biggest place to be with the family, several rooms and amazing professionals.

    Ummmm...how did I live so many years never tasting Portuguese custard pastry? I'll be honest, we came back a few times and it was out of the way. Pasteis de Belem is everything it's hyped up to be. Perfectly flavored baked custard and the flakey crust was to die for. With a cup of Portuguese coffee (which is another amazing thing!!!), we were in heaven!!!

    Ditto regarding Joana's review and with a small cup of expresso. This place is popular and there is often a line out the door. However, there's a huge amount of indoor seating (especially in the back) and the table service is prompt and friendly.

    The best "Pastel de Belém" I tried... it's a nice and famous place, but still really cheap. The only bad thing: too many tourists, so take away is a good option. If you are going to Lisbon you have to stop by and try one!

    They provide the best nata--Pasteis de Nata, Cream Custard pie, custard tart- -in Portugal (perhaps the best in the world)! Who can miss this restaurant?!全世界最好吃的葡式蛋塔就在這兒!沒吃過這裡的蛋塔,請別說你知道什麼叫做葡萄牙蛋塔!

    Portugal is known for a variety of excellent pastries. Pasteis De Belem is known for these delicate little egg custard tarts...They are delicious and provide one of our happy culinary memories of Lisbon.

    Even for someone who doesn't like Pateis de Nata this place is a must see place. The cafe stretches for miles and it's great to see the cakes getting made.

    I guess I was spoiled by our local bakery in Baixa. The pastel was okay and the quiche and croissant were fine, but it was nothing special. Although it was extremely busy, our waiter was very nice and attentive. There is usually a huge line out the front for take-away, but we ate in the cafe section (which has several rooms that go back into the building so keep searching for a seat...you will find one!) and found this to be much more relaxed.

    It is a must if you are in Lisbon. The place truly lives up to its fame. It still maintains the low key look from over a hundred year ago. The food is all very reasonably priced or even cheap. Pasteis de Belem are those delicious little phyllo cups with sweet and dense egg custard dusted with powered sugar and cinnamon. A few of those and a cup of coffee or tea make a perfect afternoon. There is always a long line outside, but don't let that deter you. Those are people waiting for the to-go. If you eat in, there are plenty of tables in the back of the store.

Description:

Luring thousands of hungry patrons in Lisbon every year, Pastéis De Belém boasts top-notch Portuguese tarts filled with custard and ambiance to boot. The food (and espresso!) is highlighted by the charming history of the shop, too. When monks were expelled from their religious posts in 1834 post-revolution Portugal, clergy at Belém's monastery found a new way to reach the masses: sweets. And they haven't looked back. Long lines out the front door promise you have found the right spot, but step inside the cafe to perch for an hour at a table. Every traveler has to eat, so make sure your tour of Lisbon includes a rendezvous to Pastéis De Belém, and savor this little slice of heaven.
