Opened in 1837, this cafe and pastry shop is an institution in Lisbon. Both locals and tourists alike flock to this cafe to savor the classic custard tarts known as Pastéis de Belém, made from a secret recipe that originated in the monastery.
The blue and white tiled walls, and hustle and bustle of the cafe, will take you back in time. Enjoy the delicious and addicting warm tarts at a table in the cafe, and then take a box home, just like the locals do. You won’t be able to eat just one, and that explains why they sell over 10,000 tarts a day.
