Ask a local where to go for pastéis de nata and half the time (perhaps more) they will suggest Manteigaria. This nata factory/pastelaria hybrid, located in Bica, lets customers watch the confectionery wizards work their magic from behind the counter while simultaneously indulging in the finished product alongside an espresso. Locals like to swing by in the morning and also in the evenings after dinner (the shop closes around midnight). Plan for a quick bite or to take some on the road because this spot isn’t for hanging out and fills up quickly. There is also a second counter at Time Out Market in the historic Mercado da Ribeira.
