Pasteis de nata from Fall River are at Bom Cafe in Cambridge

I went to Bom Cafe in Cambridge (on Cambridge St, in the former Muqueca space, east of Inman Square) for the first time today - it's a nice space, with nice decorations (and free wifi!). Friend had a coffee, which was strong and freshly made, and I had a pastel de nata. Was told that the pastries are brought in from a bakery in Fall River (though he didn't know which place) - it was really good, and way better than the ones at Great Taste in Chinatown (although these are also quite good, but much less flaky). Pastry at Bom Cafe was extremely flaky, custard was firm and not overly sweet. Really good. Coffee + pastry equaled less than $4, which is a good deal for an afternoon snack.

Other things on the menu sound interesting, and they have lots of juices on the menu (and also acai), so I am hoping to return soon!
