Nata's Bakery - portuguese, and other european, sherman oaks

Jerome | May 25, 2006 02:51 PM

So just stopped by this place today on the way to my office. And they are small but really good.
The pastries at Nata's divide into three sorts. Franco-continental, real Portuguese, and local american baked goods.
the Portuguese are the more unusual, queijoada - with cheese and something like a dulce de leche, all kinds of tarts with jams, a filled doughnut (not a malasada, they will be getting them starting next month), a portuguese style eclair with whipped cream and "egg strings", etc.
The french are the usual - buttercream pastries, a large grand marnier flavored mousse, another one wrapped in a marzipan skin, all quite fresh.
The american stuff - muffins, a variety of butter cookies including (this being sherman oaks) rugelach, etc.
There are a few savory things, a got a small codfish croquette - pasteis de bacalhau, that was wonderful.
The place isn't cheap but it's not crazy expensive. There are a few tables outside for sitting and having a pastry and coffee or a snack. Perfectly pleasant. Horus are 7AM to 9Pm. They're having a 1 year anniversary on june 10th with some free stuff so if you're interested, save the date.
