We loved everything about this place. Went for a breakfast and everything was delicious: salmon sandwich, cheesecake, coffee, fresh juice, yogurt. Interior is great, but the staff is the best:) When leaving we wanted to take pastel de nata with us, but we accidentally dropped...it on the floor, they exchanged it for us for free and did not even want to take a tip. The way they handled this simply made our day:)More

After couple of years we came back to this place and were very pleased to see it hasn't changed. The best apple pie ever is still there, as well as the most chocolaty cake you've ever seen. And the atmosphere is like in your grandma's...house. I hope they never change.More

We stopped here on our way back to the train station after a lovely day wandering around beautiful Sintra. The decor was quirky and there were little rooms off the main area. The service was very good with the lady taking the time to describe...the different craft beers. I had the orange cake which was very big, moist, light and delicious. The scone arrived and was almost the size of the plate! The fruit inside was juicy and plentiful and as the scone was so big we all got a bit. Really glad we found this lovely place.More

My wife and I ate breakfast there for 3 days because it was included with our stay at the chalet. Every morning we were greeted with smiling young ladies as we entered the shop. The food was delicious and we liked it so much we...ate lunch there one day. Its close to the train station you cant miss it. Thanks!!!More
