You must taste the travesseiros, they are delicious!

We had a coffee with some different pastries in Piriquita 1. But the famous travesseiros are really so delicious! The place has a pleasant atmosphere, but is very simple. We had lunch on teh terrace of Piriquita 2, also a fine place for a simple lunch.

The travesseiro is unique. Its the original one. But the waiting line is too much Just from bad organizition. You would imagine that place like this has a good system to sell without too much waiting time. It dosent have. Since you can buy the piriquita travesseiros in other places its better to do so.

We were recommended this cafe by staff at hour hotel in Estoril, who told us to try the Travesseiros and Quiejadas. We did, and we were amazed. If I could fly back to Portugal now, I'd go just to eat some more of their Travesseiros! Beautiful pastries and great service for low prices. Also, Sintra is an awesome place so... More

Belém is famous for its 'pastéis', Sintra is famous for its 'travesseiros'. It's hard for me going to this place and not having at least half dozen to eat there and then take away. Remember ask for 'Travesseiros de Sintra' and be happy!

Here you going to try the best pastry in portugal. The traditional ones is called "queijadas de sintra" and "travesseiros de sintra" they are amazing and melt on your mouth. The only problem for me is the queues you wait a lot of time to be attend but to be honest...worth the time 😀

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.
