A much-loved bakery is to expand, with a new branch to tempt you into the world of Portuguese treats
Famed for their pastéis de nata (the best you’ll get outside of Lisbon, never mind in Cambridge), Norfolk Street Bakery has had a cult following in the city for many years.
Despite a location tucked away on a quiet residential street, it gained a huge following since its opening in 2012, with foodies all over town raving about their beautiful freshly-baked breads, cakes and biscuits.
There’s good news this month for local fans or those keen to sample Adília and her team’s bakes, as they’ve just opened a new branch at 7 Station Road.
As well as a counter laden with homemade sweet treats, from prune and port brownies to rye and chocolate cookies, you’ll be able to pick up a range of artisan loaves.
There’s also a colourfully painted seating area where you can enjoy your spoils with a coffee, plus you can enjoy light bites like toasties, sandwiches and panini. Make sure you pick up a custard tart for the road, too.
