Confeitaria Nacional – Sweet tradition

For those with a sweet tooth, passing through the wooden doors of Confeitaria Nacional is a bit like arriving at a (sugary) paradise.

It is always comforting to pass by the wooden doors of the building and rediscover both the flavors of the Portuguese sweets (we do have a large tradition behind us, so I don’t feel so guilty for my own sweet tooth – it’s in the Portuguese DNA!) and the warmth of the interior – Confeitaria was founded originally in the XIX century, and the interiors maintain the classic and refined ambiance, with its marble counters, wooden staircase and mirrored ceiling.

Nearing Christmas, Confeitaria Nacional becomes a bit more crowded – this is one of the most popular places selling the traditional Christmas cake.

I find it a wonderful place to sit down for an afternoon snack, especially after some shopping: a nice cup of tea, accompanied with it a croissant or with some almond cookies (one of the house specialties) easily make my day a lot better.

Hope to meet you there soon!
