“Whatever your programme in Sintra don't miss Sapa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Sapa is THE place if you want to taste one (better yet a few) queijadas. Queijadas (cheese cakes that don't taste like cheese) are one of the 2 famous pastries from Sintra and one that you just cannot miss! Sapa is right past the City Hall at the beginning of the Volta do Duche, the long bend of the road tuck against the park on the way to the old centre next to the palace with the odd chimneys. At Sapa you have a choice of ordering at the counter, one unit or the typical paper rolled half dozen, or go past the door at the end of the tiny shop into the nice lounge with views of the palace. Whatever your programme in Sintra don't miss Sapa!

“delicious queijadas pastries in Sintra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This a very old pastry shop-factory, where you can taste the traditional "queijada - cheese pastry".
Located just next to the city hall, is much more quiet than the others in the central old village.
Ideal for a quick stop after lunch or in the morning.
Eight Centuries ago, back in 1227, the portuguese history makes reference to this delicious traditional portuguese patries.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Best pastry in the area. You can not go to Sintra and not try the "Queijadas". And in the meantime, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and the view. Really nice place.

“Beautiful little "Café"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

One of my top favourite pastry in the world. I can eat up to 5 "Queijadinhas de Sintra" in a row.
Lovely little place, great service and a wonderfull place to stop by, specially in the winter as they lit the fireplace.
