Why we love it

Nata & Co bring the Portuguese spirit to Cardiff with their trio of bakeries on Castle Street, Bute Street (Cardiff Bay) and Clifton Street (Adamsdown). If Portuguese baking is known for one thing it’s the pastel de nata and unsurprisingly, Nata & Co’s is an absolute bobby dazzler. Crisp layers of golden pastry contain a wobbly sweet custard filling with a lightly charred top. It’s a thing of beauty and made even more so washed down with a cup of strong Portuguese coffee. But, there’s more to Nata than their natas. Salt cod fritters, custard donuts, chorizo flecked bread and laden toasted sandwiches are just some of the other items which make a visit worthwhile any time of day, be it for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack or post-afternoon snack snack.

Highlights

Take home a half dozen pastel de natas
The gigantic bola de Berlin (custard donut) could probably feed a family of four
Robust Portuguese Delta coffee is the perfect partner for all the sugar

Great to see that Nata has gone from a shop in Splot to being located in the heart of the city opposite the Castle. The pastel de Natas are great - especially with Nutella...
