Pasteis de nata at O Cantinho, Cambridge

  • d

I stopped by O Cantinho last night to pick up desserts to bring to a friend's house. The pasteis de nata, which are custard filled cupcake/pastries, are just 1 dollar each and excellent, a lot like creme brulee inside a soft pastry. I got 3 of those and 2 coconut cupcakes (which are very coconutty and moist). These small desserts are all made at O Cantinho, so they are fresh every day. I highly recommend them.

  1. Yes I love those desserts and Oh Cantinho (1128 Cambridge Street in Cambridge) is a favorite lunch spot too.
