Padoca is a charming little bakery, with a rustic décor, which is just 8 minutes walking distance from school! This makes it an excellent choice for snacks and juices after school before your clubs and societies and good place to grab a desert for lunch for lowers and uppers. But it is also an excellent spot for breakfast or brunches during weekends.
Padoca is famous for their amazing bread that include; baguettes, brioches, ciabattas and more! And also for their mouth watering cakes! I recommend the chocolate cake (My favorite!), but the cold coconut cake is definitely a must try!
The menu includes a great variety of snakes from tapiocas and sandwiches to polvilho and cakes. Juices are also freshly squeezed and you have to try one of their many fruit combinations.
However, if you are planning to go during the weekend for breakfast, be aware that it is a small and very popular place. So, arriving at 9:00/10:00 might mean you might have to wait up to 2h to be able to get a table. I recommend going for brunch or arriving earlier at 7:30/8:00 am. Nevertheless, the place is charming, the food is delicious and the price is fair.
