Don't miss this in Sintra

I stopped in here earlier today and had a great lunch. A nice mix of pastries. Even their ham and cheese sandwich was good. You should definitely get their specialty which was described to me as "almond pillow". Everything was great though so you won't be disappointed with anything you order.

Great place to grab a quick bite to eat (depending on the service :) and mouth-watering pastries made locally.

You will get it when you visit it...desserts for anytime of the day, or just a midday snack. One thing I'm sure..Sintra is full of wonders and Piriquita is one of them.

Don't visit Sintra without stopping here for a sweet snack. Melt in your mouth pastries. Friendly staff and freshly made.

When visiting a foreign country, it's important to try local dishes...and when it comes down to trying sweets, the chore is even easier! We weren't deceived we our choice...the pastry was wonderful and preciously wrapped!!! But it was quickly gone and we could have easily gone for a second! Quick & efficient service...

Just feel a miracle of good taste and a cozy place to talk about with friends. I'm a suspicious guy because I just love the place and I taste and appreciated almost everything I found there. Try the typical cakes and dare yourself to feel some sin thoughts. maybe you can feel history in Sintra but cafe A Piriquita is... More

The place is a bit overcrowded all the time for it is really good so my advice is to plan getting some of the best sweets of Sintra — this is the right place to get them — and then go for a walk in the village. It will be an untimely experience you'll never forget!

Very traditional pastry shop tucked in a narrow street but very accessible from Sintra centre. Delicious and affordable. A must go for every Sintra visiter.
