Apologies for not posting yesterday, I could lie and blame it on the pesky time change but I am in an honest mood so I have to fess up and say that I didn’t post yesterday because I was exceptionally lazy, unmotivated and cranky and didn’t quite trust myself in front of the keyboard! So I am crawling out of my funk and have been considerably cheered up by this gorgeous little bakery I found. Ratton, located in Largo Duque do Cadaval, in Lisbon’s historical area, the bakery is the perfect place to hang out and catch a bite to eat before hopping on a train from Rossio Station (right next door). I generally love hanging out in bakeries, there is just something so soothing about the smell of flour and freshly baked bread, and it’s a huge bonus when the bakery looks as inviting as Ratton. It was the mixture of different finishes that really caught my eye – all that natural timber, with the sleek floors and chalkboard noticeboards. Simple beauty at it’s best!
