Pastelaria Regional Cego (est. 1901)

Setúbal, Portugal

The family business was founded in 1901 by Manuel Rodrigues, who went blind when he was young, hence the name blind (Cego). A man of seven trades, he married Teresa Prata, a cook, who started by making the “osos”, “amores”, tarts and “encharcada”, based on recipes from conventual confectionery. Later, in 1975, the house fell into the hands of Augusto Pinto, who had extensive experience in the hotel business. Currently, it is his son, José Augusto, 55, who runs the pastry shop, where he started working with his father when he was 15.

“It is a family house specialising in regional sweets from Azeitão, where we try to offer a homemade and as artisanal as possible,” José Augusto tells New in Setúbal. Part of the decoration maintains the original features of the space, with typical Portuguese tiles representing images of the town and some products sold in the pastry shop.

With more than a century of tradition, customers have been through the generations. And of course, there are also plenty of tourists of various nationalities, who are completely surrendered to the charms and flavours of the town.
