OMG "queijadas"!!!!

This cafe has outdoor seating. We were told to get the desserts, queijadas and travesseiros. They far surpassed whatever we ate for lunch there. Took some more for the road. Delicious!!

Wonderful little cafe with plenty of history. Busy place with sweet treats from Portugal. We came here every evening as we loved the place and felt really welcome by the waiter Andres. I can recommend visiting this cafe, you will not be disappointed. It is also great value.

We had latte, tea, sausage roll and coconut cookie. All together it come to 5.5 euro so very cheap. Latte was small but nice, sausage roll was made with frankfurter sausage so wasn't so nice, coconut cookie was grand. Wouldn't come back but it's ok for fast stop if you passing by.

Do not miss this when you visit Sintra! And order a Traveseiro. A fantastic pastry/desert which is a great snack with a coffee after visiting the castle and Pena Palace. You'll need the sugar boost to continue! Anytime we are in Sintra, we DO NOT MISS THIS!

This small coffee shop is a must stop over for a quick break. Of course you should try some of the delicious pastries, pasteis de nata, queijadas and the house special "travesseiros" . Can be very busy but worth the wait! Delicious sweet treat!

The hot chocolate is just delicious, very soft and thick. The cakes are great and so fresh, specially the "travesseiros de sintra" with egg sweet. To repeat for sure. The city is gorgeous and very romantic. Ideal for a date.

One of the oldest pastry shops in Sintra. Located in the very heart of the village, ideal for a delicious breakfast or an afternoon tea. I recommend the Queixadas and Travesseiros de Sintra, the typical pastries from the village! They are homemade and absolutely delicious!
