A Taste Of Portuguese Desserts

I’ve heard enough from my friends that Portuguese have a major love for sweets. That is a reason for an abundance of bakeries, pastry shops and galaterias everywhere you go in Portugal. I’ve discovered one rich in tradition and offering a wide variety of pasty right here, in Beverly Hills areas – NATAS Pastries.

The bakery inside is not too big. But the showcase with pastries and all kinds of sweets is abundant! Going into such places like NATAS on an empty stomach is no fun! Go grab something to eat first, then head over to NATAS’ for desserts. That’s what we’ve done on a night heading from Beverly Hills.


These Pastries de Coco are at the top of my list! Soft and filled with custard-like filling, these pastry cups melt in my mouth. I can eat more than one!


The eclairs bursting with flavorful fillings and different tops: chocolate or confectioner’s sugar caps. Any choice would be a treat!


And the fruit-filled tartalettes are heavenly! Fresh berries with unique NATAS glaze – yum!


The NATAS pastries are so good that they go at a speed of a lightening. Once they are gone – the cafe closes down.


When you are looking for cakes and more familiar baking desserts like cheesecake, carrot cake, Napoleon, Tiramisu, or biscotti.


Here’s what we’ve boxed with us before leaving NATAS.

Cavacas – Portuguse cupcake style pastry made with eggs, flour, confectioners sugar and milk.

Eclair – These are oblong pastries made with choux dough filled with cream and topped with chocolate.

Pastel de Tentugal – Wrapped sweet pastry with a rich yellow egg cream filling.

Bolo de Bolacha – Portuguese buscuit cake with condensed milk

Leite Creme – Awesomely yummy and simple dessert made with cream, eggs, and roasted sugar.

Bola de Berlim – doughnut-like dessert fried in oil and filled with marmalade filling, then powdered with confectioners sugar or icing.

Toucinho do Ceu – Portuguese cake made of egg yolks and almonds.

And my most favorite is Pastel de Nata, egg custard tart in filo dough. NATAS has several pastels de nata with different fillings. It is quite an adventure to taste them all! Just one bite – and move to the next pastry to taste!


If you are in the area, stop by to take a sweet bite of one or more of the NATAS pastry creations.

Look for this sign at the entry to the shopping strip mall where NATAS Pastries is located!
