A sweet return!

Twenty odd years I went back to this Café to enjoy the delicious Queijadas e Travesseiros! When I went in I could see that nothing changed, the same chairs, tables, the same quality and as busy as I remembered! The service is very good and the quality of the products must be highlighted!

Even though people love this place, it is just another cafe with Portuguese sweets that taste all the same in my opinion.

Good price and good products. If you want to have a good breakfast and try the clasical Queijadas os Sintra you have to go to Cafe A Piquirita.

A busy cafe close to the centre of Sinatra. It was quite full when we first saw it but after about ten minutes wait we easily got a table. The prices are reasonable and service is good for their range of Portuguese sweet delights.

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.
