I just had the pleasure of enjoying the pastries at Charlotte's and am so glad we stopped in! We bought half an almond torte which was moist and delectable and I also felt it important to try a plain croissant just to check out the breads. It too was great- nice and fresh and quite dense. As we were paying, we were also offered some incredibly delicious cream tarts with a fabulously flaky puff pastry-like crust. They were warm from the oven and simply irrestible! We ate them immediately! Other patrons had equally great looking pastries- the strawberry tart and chocolate cake are next on my list to try on my next visit. This was my very first visit to a Portuguese pastry shop so I am glad my first experience was so sublime. Thanks to everyone who has written about this wonderful establishment.
