Do they serve 'upside down' cake? They should.

The ceiling mirrors are a nice touch!

I love the reflections! I can see why it has lasted, looks like a charming place.

Ceiling mirrors - waht fun. They really make the shop look opulent.

Fabulous! Especially the first picture. I want to go there. May I know the name of the shop?

One look at your captures for the day and I'm suddenly starving!! Love the mirrors in the ceiling! I can understand why it's lasted so long, too! Great reflections for the day, JM! Enjoy your weekend!

@Hooked on Memes: The title is the name of the shop at downtown Lisbon.

Holy Schmoly that first reflection is amazing. One of the best I've ever seen. Wish I could see that spot in person. Nicely done.

great reflections. very elaborate decor for a pastry shop, so it must be decadent!

VP said...

1829? They have something to be proud: almost two centuries of delights in a great shop, perfectly photographed!

Fabulous reflection and beautiful shop. How would one choose what to buy?

Woody said...

Love the ceiling, it's amazing!

High quality photo.

Excelente mesmo, abraço

Jacob said...

With a mirrored ceiling! How very cool. This place would be my downfall, though. As I've told others, when it comes to pastries, I have lots of "will" power, but not enough "won't" power!

Re your comment about the monkeys. I believe it! In 1957, while in the Navy, we spent a day in Gibraltar...some of the sailors climbed the mountain and said the monkeys there tried to steal their wallets, keys, etc.

This is grand! Did you buy anything?

Karen said...

Excellent!

I just love the vintage decor of this shop but I would really go there for their custard tart and coffee that are made in the premisses. I always go there whenever I am in Lisbon for it reminds me of Paris. Nice focus!

RedPat said...

I think that is the most gorgeous store I have ever seen!

Jack said...

The top photo is fabulous. I like reflections when it is unclear what is going on in the picture.

J Bar said...

Dói o peito vir aqui e saber que não conheço essa Terra.

Sabe que parece muito com a nossa Confeitaria Colonial no centro do Rio de Janeiro... ou melhor nós que parecemos com vós...

Regina said...

Joan Elizabeth said...

I reckon I would like to reflect in that shop.

The ceiling mirror could take the place of a surveillance camera. ;)

Joanne said...

Tens estado a passear:) Lindo sitio!

Small City Scenes said...

A place I easily could have spent time and money!

T. Becque said...

I could have some fun in there!

Francisca said...

This looks like the Viennese Royal pastry shop I posted some time ago. Lots of reflections! Nice! (Jose, any idea why I often get ads for online games when I click on your comment link? Are you connected to these?)

Shirley said...

You have some incredible photos here! Simply stunning!

Fabien said...

Superbes reflets, bravo
