Best For Take Out

Upon the recommendation of our guide, we decided to buy pastries 'to go' since the place was just full but I was able to order right away and take the goodies to the bus and enjoy them on the way to Cascais. You won't regret your visit to this gem.

This cafe is a reference in Sintra and has been for as long as I can remember. The warm straight out of the oven Travesseiro pastries are unanimously the best in Sintra and pregnant in the whole of Portugal would recommend that anyone who hasn't tried them should.

It's a must try! You must try a "travesseiro" in Sintra. Excelent pastery and very typical. Super crowded place. Buy it and leave the place to eat it in a better place while you discover Sintra!

We Sneaked inside escaping from the bad weather, the place was a bit crowded but we had a great time. Food was fresh, comfortable seating. People know each other so we had fun to be the only strangers out there.

We didn't have much time in Sintra so we stopped in and ordered 2 boxes full of goodies on the go. We ate them on the way back to Lisbon and they didn't disappoint! The almond filling pastry was AMAZING... but then again, so was everything else we tried. Be sure to stop in and enjoy a pastry before you... More

Most visitors, who come to Lisbon will also visit Belem and Sintra and in both places they will probably not miss out on some of the best sweets Portugal has to offer. While in Belem it is the famous Pasteis de Belem, so in Sintra it is the Travesseiros de Sintra and the Queijadas de Sintra, obviously locally produced specialities.... More

The original pastry , THE osde st in SINTRA is 50 meters from the National Palace. Which I visit this 100 meters up the street. Quiet, beautiful outdoor terrace good service, good coffee, huge toasted sandwiches and much more. It is much quieter than the other near the center. I recommend it

We had heard about the Travessiro cake and their special pastries .. it was better than what was promised. The cafe was charming and so was the staff.
