Lisboa Patisserie Portuguese London

57 Golborne Road, W10 020 8968 5242 Open 8am-8pm Mon-Sat, 8am-7pm Sun Today the heart of London’s sizeable Portuguese community may be south of the river around Stockwell and Vauxhall, but Notting Hill’s Golborne Road is home to one of the oldest and best-loved pastelarias in town. Such has been the success of Lisboa Patisserie that it has spawned a mini chain currently numbering four branches across the capital, but the original site is certainly the most fun to visit when the Portobello Road market see pi59 is in full swing. Portuguese cakes and tarts are the speciality, and come in an impressive range and at low prices; you won’t find better or more authentic cinnamon-topped pasteis de nata custard tarts in the city. Equally fabled are the bolos de arroz rice cakes and the castanhas de ovo literally, egg chestnut”, a sweet, eggy nugget. Savouries are sold too – try the pasteis de bacalhau salt cod and potato cakes.
