From the silky pop of the burnished custard to the layers of flaky pastry, there really isn't a bad time for a tart.

As far as we’re concerned, there's never a bad time to have a Portuguese tart. Burnished, sweet, wobbling custard resting in a nest of crisp puffed pastry layers, the “pastel de nata” as they are known in its homeland, can be tricky to get right. So, when a good one comes along, it’s cause for celebration – especially if said tart can be delivered to your door.

We’ve put in the hard yards and sacrificed our skinny jeans to find Sydney’s best delivered Portuguese tarts. But don’t just take our word for it, here's where you can try them for yourself.

Want more sweet treats delivered to your door? Check out some of Sydney's best here.

Need some inspiration to keep you busy this weekend? These are our top picks for things to do in Sydney.

Sydney's best Portuguese tart deliveries

  • Petersham

Have you ever tried the Portuguese custard tarts from Sweet Belem? If not, you really need to fix that. They are, hands down, the best you’ll find in Sydney. The original chef learnt how to make them in Belem in Lisbon, Portugal, before passing the secret recipe onto the current owner. And as anyone who has ever been to Belem will know, there’s only one thing they are famous for.

Yep. Custard tarts. The best part? They're doing delivery via UberEats so you can have those sweet, Sweet Belem tarts without even having to put pants on.

While Black Star Pastry might be best known for their totally Instagrammable strawberry and watermelon cake, the less talked about but equally beautiful sister is the BSP Portuguese tart. This is one of those truly stand-out bakeries, so if they're going to do something, they're going to do it right. 

The glossy tarts have the perfect ratio of sweet custard to balanced burnt bitterness to take the edge off so you won't have to stop at just one. The team are dispatching deliveries from their Entertainment Quarter bakery and you can place your order via their website.

  • Wine bars
  • Double Bay

Bibo Wine Bar in Double Bay is a collaboration between former Guillaume at Bennelong Head Chef Jose Silva and former Guillaume Paddington Restaurant Manager Jonathan Mallet. It also happens to be a sister venue to Sweet Belem, the bakery synonymous with deliciousness. As such, Bibo Wine Bar can hook you up with your Portuguese tart fix from some of the best in the biz.

While of course, your order will include those delicious, bronzed, flaky tarts, you can also treat yourself to the full Bibo takeaway menu on the website. Go a la carte and order tasty treats like smoked mackerel pâté and house-cured meats or opt for the weekly discovery menu; a set menu for two. 

Dulwich Hill’s favourite Sri Lankan(ish) hopper house, the Fold, whip up buttery, flaky sweet and savoury treats on the daily including, of course, their Portuguese tart. The folks at the Fold have heard the people and are giving them what they want (need) during lockdown by getting on board with delivery, so the people of Sydney a little buttery reprieve until we can get back out into the world. Head to the Fold's website here to place an order.


While the dedicated Mexican bakery Keski Pan is ordinarily found at Glebe and Marrickville markets, slinging sweet treats and savoury baked goods, the lockdowns have kicked this operation into a full-time delivery service. So how does it work? 

All you need to do is place your order on the Keski Pan website, select a delivery day and then wait patiently at your door. It's that easy. While you're at it, throw in some empanadas and tamales for a full-on Mexican feast at home before your Portuguese dessert.
