I recently had to find a breakfast place for friends that has pancakes and waffles instead of just the usual too healthy egg white omelette and fruit, so we ended up at Natas Pastries. It feels like a little European vacation in Sherman Oaks. The decor is charming and the staff is friendly and attentive. I loved being served steamed milk for my coffee and having water served at the table in an old fashioned bottle as well as having enough yummies in my omelette to make it seem as decad...view moreent as the pancakes. Natas is truly a quiet little gem of a restaurant.view less
I grew up in a Portuguese-American community and have spent many vacations in Portugal and Madeira. I can assure anyone wondering about authenticity that Natas pastries are as good, or better, than any Portuguese sweets I've ever had. I love everything they sell and the owners and counter staff could not be nicer. Here is a place that truly deserves great success and merits the nice user reviews it's gotten. GO but not if you're trying to lose pounds.
I like sitting at one of the outdoor tables, sipping coffee and noshing on a nata or whatever unusual treat I've chosen from the bakery display case. It's different than any other bakery around, even if I don't always love the treat I've picked that day. The staff is really nice.
pro- I tasted the natas and they were good. For two dollars you find a pastry hard to find somewhere else in the San Fernando Valley.

con- no place to sit inside. Only 2 tables outside with about 4 seats.
It has a fast-food setting where you order and leave. Hope there's space to sit down or gets bigger to enjoy the aromas soon.
I had to leave a note in support of my favorite bakery/cafe . I have been coming to this bakery since it opened a few years ago. Being a teacher I have little time on breaks but always made time to come with my colleges and have these amazing sweets and their delightful coffee.\r
I am a fan of many of their things, one of them, their brownies are to die for. Everything here is made from scratch and you can tell. I had their breakfast and lunch, the food is unbelievable, truly homemad...view moree!\r
Great service, great food, great coffee, best brownies ;-)!view less
It's the only place in Los Angeles were you can get ""pasteis de bacalhau (cod)"" that's a savory Portuguese treat and also the ""natas"" in Portugal they call that pasteis de Belem.\r
The owner is Portuguese and very friendly.\r
Why 4 stars? Well the other pastries there are good but no phenomenal, nothing out of the ordinary.
