COVID-19 Updates

Bom Dia has a limit of two people max in the store at one time and masks are mandatory.

While Bom Dia, which translates to good morning in Portuguese, does specialize in classics like pastel de nata and tosta mista, the bakery also goes way beyond that.

Almost everything is made on site in small batches throughout the day here so products are always fresh, though the selection won't always be the same.

A marble counter imported from Portugal is the main focal point of the high-ceilinged space.

Ovens chug away in the background and there's a seating area upstairs.

Pastel de nata ($2.25) are textbook, crispy, fluffy, custardy and flaky with a nice caramelized char. It's no surprise considering the staff here have done stints at different Portuguese bakeries, expanding on their experience to do things a little differently.

Bola de Berlim roughly translates to ball of Berlin, basically a donut that's fried, split and filled, typically sold by beach vendors in Portugal.

The dough is bright yellow and fried to a golden crisp, but it's fluffy and spongy inside, a more traditional variety filled with custard, others filled with Nutella.

Croissants ($3) break away from the Portuguese backbone of the menu, and could hold their own against those at any French bakery.

They're more soft and buttery than crispy and flaky, and you can taste how fresh and tender they are.

You'll also find these in varieties like almond, or made into sandwiches with ham and cheese. Croissants and pastel de nata alike are made in super small batches of 15 or 20 that last a few hours and are renewed throughout the day.

A selection of muffins ($3 to $3.75) changes all the time with new varieties constantly being introduced. A banana chocolate muffin is practically a cupcake with lots of rich flavour and a decadent topping, and one red velvet variety is actually filled with red fruit jam.

Salami chocolate looks exactly like it sounds, though of course it's not meat at all, just a straightforward traditional log of chocolate rolled with graham cracker.

Patties ($2.25) in chicken, codfish, shrimp and beef varieties that are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside aren't necessarily front and centre, but move further to the right within the store to find more and more savoury options.

For example, all the way at the end there are sandwiches in varieties like oven roasted turkey, oven roasted pork loin, chicken breast, salami and cheese, prosciutto and cheese, and traditional bifana.

They also do classic tosta mistas, basic but comforting pressed ham and cheese sandwiches.

Espresso-based beverages start at $3.
