Cascais won a new spot where it is shown that gluten-free cooking can be synonymous with tasty food.
Created by the hands of the psychologist Maria Batarda, the Batarda’s bakery and pastry shop operated for about a year under a “dark kitchen” regime. Now, the space, located in the parish of Parede, is getting ready to receive its customers in a soft opening from this Saturday, August 7th, with a pleasant terrace.
With Gluten-Free certification from the Portuguese Association of Celiacs, Batarda’s will offer delicious brunches and breakfasts, pizzas, breads, cakes, and traditional snacks, all in gluten-free versions, but with lots of flavor. There are also options for vegetarians, vegans, and lactose intolerants.
On the Batarda’s menu, there are options for any appetite and time of day, with tasty eggs, toast, pancakes and pizzas. The exclusive Brunch Menu, at 16 euros, features a trilogy of exclusive Batarda’s breads (Alentejan bread, baguette, croissant), as well as a bowl of scrambled eggs; bowl of greek yogurt with granola and fruit; butter, cheese, ham and seasonal fruit compote; cocoa pancakes with house nutella, fruit and granola; cappuccino or orange juice; and coffee.
For breakfast, there are two separate menus. Batarda’s, 8 euros, with bread, ham, cheese and seasonal fruit compote; custard tart; natural orange juice and coffee. There is also a vegan version, at 12 euros, featuring toast with avocado cream and cherry tomato confit; fruit and granola bowl; pancakes with almond butter, fruit and maple syrup; natural orange juice or half of vegetable milk. All produced with noble ingredients, of superior quality and 100% gluten-free.
